    I'm looking into getting a double din HU and wondering if there is enough OBD info available to justify purchasing a Maestro Datalink...

    I don't have steering wheel controls...it would just be for vehicle data...

    2.7L access cab... I'm thinking either Pioneer or Kenwood HU.

    Anyone have experience with a similar set-up?

    Tons of data available to even basic OBD2 scanners. Not all of it useful for driving.

    Big ones that I always wish to read are ATF Temp, coolant temp, and battery voltage.

    So, you don't get ATF temp, coolant temp or battery voltage on '07s?

    No, you can read them, thus being desireable.

    Nice. :thumbsup:

    I wonder if something like this bluetooth scanner adapter (or something similar) would work just as well for a lot less than the Maestro...

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BY2CK32/ref=psdc_15707381_t2_B00652G4TS

    I'm thinking I could mirror our android phone to the HU and accomplish the same thing...since I don't have steering wheel controls, the Maestro may be overkill.

    Thoughts?

    10 bucks for a BT scanner that can work on most cars and trucks is a great tool to have

    I have used mine on many
