    Based on the comments and my want of a simple device to monitor the vehicle on the go I'm guessing this is the go;

    ...works well, I like the display more. But it doesn't seem read EGT's, unless I'm missing a setting?

    Would they cost around $200 AUD?

    That's what I have been using so far.
    Will not read exhaust temp or oil pressure as the current computer doesn't read this.
    I have decided to fit an adapter to read oil pressure and a pyrometer to read exhaust temp.
    I will run this in conjunction with the supacentre gauge.

    You will need a pyrometer fitted to read EGT'S

When i had a sticky waste gate it was good to monitor the MAP data to avoid it over boosting and going into a temporary retardation. It will read about 15 parameters that are useful for on the go. Because i use it for kph i look at it frequently so no need for an alarm. The Apps for your mobile are probably better than the scan gauge but for me sits on the dash and i don't have to think about it when i jump in or out the truck.

    There was a mob out of South Africa (or Zimbabwe ) that sold a monitor and alarm that used independent sensors or you tapped into the factory sensors. I thought it was called EMS but a quick google search didn't come up with it. I thought Dave (Incisor) sold it through his shop (i didn't double check). The benefit of this is a low coolant alarm and an alarm for each of the parameters which means you don't have to monitor it (as you do with scan gauge).
    Redarc have one @$500 IIRC
