    Saw some other tw members use this one. One reads zero because I only have one battery. And the truck is key on engine off so it’s reading 12.8 volts.18A91B9F-E299-4404-8673-85B899AD1824.jpg

    I grabbed this off of Amazon
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EN5E3X2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    It seems accurate enough, only real problem is that its bright AF so I'm thinking about putting it on a switch so it's not on all the time when I'm driving at night. Haven't used the USB yet, so can't comment on that.
    Also be aware that this is the size to fit in the larger switch blank to the left of the 2018 Tacoma steering wheel, but they also make one that fits the smaller blanks found everywhere else on the truck.

    Is that a plug and play or how did you wire it up? Excuse my negligence in this category as I haven’t torn apart the dash or done any wiring Mods for mine yet.

    I got that same Amazon one. I wired it up using an add-a-fuse to the (under dash) micro fuse box and then just run the ground down there where the other wires are grounded. Quick job.

    I’m running the SolidKit dual voltmeter. It was pricey, had to order it from Australia. But it fits like a glove.
