I added the Garmin ECORoute HD to my GPS. It connects to the OBDII port and sends a bluetooth signal to my dash mounted GPS.

I can select what parameters I want displayed in a nice custom arrangement. Things like voltage, rpm, speed, turbo boost, engine load, charge air temp (after cooler), and of course cooling water temp, which I have confirmed jumps right on up to the 195 deg F range very quickly and hold pretty steady, as it should.

The EcoRoute HD was $99.00, added on to the price of the GPS. You can find some posts with photos somewhere in this massive website!
