DashHawk Gen II

I am looking at getting the dashhawk gen II and was wondering how many people on this forum use it and their opinions about this product. I just started researching the dashhawk on some websites. It appears that you can monitor almost everything on the engine. I saw it even will record 0-60 times 1/4 mile times as well. For those who have it I thought I read that you can change the color of display to match your vehicle? Do they have red? I saw that jhp.com has a cool bracket for the dashhawk that makes it look like a part of your dash.

I originally was going to get the dash pod which looks great, but only holds two gauges and the easy plug in is for gto's built before a certain date or you have to purchase some wiring harness and tear dash apart.(no thanks). I guess the dashhawk just plugs into the old port under the dash were I hooked my programmer up to. anyway, if any of you dashhawk user could give me some information on the product and where you purchased yours at, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

JHP Dashhawk bezel:

Bezel is almost as expensive as dashhawk unit! It looks good though. Wish could find one cheaper!

Or this one by hypertech, which will probally interfere with my superchips!

I have the DASH HAWK. It is great. you can mount it just about anywhere and it can do hundreds of functions, 0-60 times, 1/4 mile times, it will monitor your trans temp. IATs, oil pressure, coolant temps, engine timing, and the list just goes ON & ON

Did you hear the one about the guy that could not afford a BlackBerry; he opted for the cheaper DingleBerry and found out it was just a piece of crap...
