    sold my Tacoma, need to buy a 1st gen now =]
    Does anyone have any pictures of what the monitor for programmers/ chips like the unichip, urd maf calibrator, apr x-1?

    My friend has an F-150 with an edge programmer and the monitor just came with a dash insert that sits to the left of his steering wheel.
    Just curious to what they look like.
    Considering getting one. I have a Trd cold air intake with jba headers and exhaust. Does anyone have any recomendations on which one I should get? I have checked all these forums and they seem to be contradictory. Everyone seems to like the Apr x-1 except the price, I have heard yes and no on unichip (one that was recomended) and urd,
    Please don't refer me to another forum, I am looking for personalized responses for my 06 Tacoma. Thanks.

    I don't think any of them have the display option.

    My buddy as a "Diablo Programmer" for his dodge ram R/T. I know that has a display on the front of it.

    I meant the options available for Tacomas. I know there are other programmers/display unites for domestic trucks.

    Ah yes. It always comes down to $. Laptops are fairly cheap no though. Even a notebook would work alright.

    I've got an old school "ASUS EEE PC" the little one with a 7" screen. It works alright for internet, runs off Linux though. No idea how to put windows on it.

    How do you like your unichip? I was recomended to get that one, told that it would do the most for the truck? pros and cons?
    Also can you buy a monitor that would show mph and rpms etc like your buddys dodge and my friends ford?
