    EDS Engine Data Scan device

    I recently fitted one of the EDS units that are available via 4WD Supercheap to my D2.
    I bought it primarily for the extra gauges it includes and it seems to work quite well.
    I can now see what my coolant temperature is Exactly instead of just relying on the standard temp gauge also the Volts coming out of the alternator and other engine functions as well.
    It can apparently also clear and store fault codes also.
    It isn't in the same league as the Nanocom But for less than a hundred bucks it is a pretty handy set of extra gauges

    It should be noted that it will only work with a V8.

    It will not work with a Td5.

    I suppose its cheaper than a smart phone,,

    what else does it tell you?
    maf flow?
    O2 sensor voltage?
    I suspect it will show the same as Torque,,
    Torque — OBD2 Performance and Diagnostics for your Vehicle

    its very nice having a real temp gauge...

    I just had a look at the specs and you are quite correct, I wonder why that is?

    Yes it shows all those but the display isn't as "Flash" as the "torque" setup and you can only see 4 readouts at any one time.
    I have MAF, Intake air temp, Engine coolant temp and Volts on my home screen.
    If I want to look at any other readout I have to scroll through to find it.
    It certainly isn't a "Bells and Whistles" setup But as a basic device it is pretty handy

    How many vehicles use the V8 and V8 electrics? The TD5 is used in the Discovery 2 and the Defender. How many of those were sold?

    Before I had a Land Rover I did not have any torque wrenches. Now I have three.

    The Td5 is not OBD-II compliant. Diesels only had to comply to OBD-II standards from 2004.

    Do they work on a 1999 V8?
