Bully Dog’s GTX Watchdog QD monitor is the latest in the line of engine monitoring devices offered by bully dog. The device is especially designed for all 2013-2016 Dodge Cummins engine vehicles and currently ranked as one of the top monitoring devices for engines.
The monitor is based on the latest 4X hardware technology from the company. It is a significant improvement on previous models in terms of responsiveness, customization options, diagnostic options and speed.
The GTX Watchdog boots up within ten seconds after the engine gets started. The GTX unit is easy to install and run. Options on the user interface are pretty self-explanatory and easy to navigate.
The monitor comes in a 5-inch capacitive, multicolor touch screen. The big screen makes it easy to read the gauges and PIDs on the screen even while driving. The hardware and firmware technology used on the device is just as good as any modern day smart phone.
The device is specially designed for Cummins vehicles. GTX Watchdog allows drivers to monitor the industry’s most extensive SAE and Cummins-specific PIDs. It is very customizable for varying needs of different drivers based on their vehicles. A separate unlock cable can be attached to the GTX making it compatible for a variety of engine types. The device offers high-resolution customizable gauges and WiFi connectivity that allows auto updates for the firmware, making it much easier to operate.
The watchdog lets drivers create a log of vehicle performance data as they drive. The record can be later played back with the help of Bully Dog’s free LiveLink software on the computer. The GTX Watchdog QD monitor also allows users to get better insights about their vehicle by letting them read and clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) coming from the engine.
The monitoring unit is easy to attach and remove. Bully Dog’s unique grab n’ go magnetic mounting system gives drivers the option to stow away the monitor for safekeeping.
The ultra-fast GTX Watchdog QD monitor gives drivers the complete ability to monitor their vehicles’ Cummins and SAE engines in real time.
The device offers dual functionality as a PID monitor as well as a diagnostic tool which can read and clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) that are coming from the engine.
The watchdog comes with data logging feature making it easier to record engine performance and play it back later on the computer using Bully Dog's Livelink software.
The 40465B watchdog has additional sensors that can be integrated with FireWire input to improve the system functionality.
Although the device is made for 2013-2016 Dodge Cummins engines, drivers can purchase and use the unlock cable to unlock more varieties of truck computers for monitoring and diagnosing.
