I use the SilverLeaf VMSpc on my electronic ISC 350 engine which monitors an enormous amount of information coming from the engine one of which is Transmission Temp.

OK--for the fluid level checks on the Allison key pad to work--two conditions must be met: 1-fluid must be at ops temp; and 2-tranny must be at "steady state"....This means you may have to wait for several minutes at idle after driving rig, to allow tranny to achieve a stable fluid level measurement. Think the reason the dipstick is so variable is differences in how rv builders install the trannys and second, the amount of fluid being held in converter varies depending on status of tranny, eg, warm or cold, in gear or neutral, etc.....

Bought one back in 2001 or 2002, then moved it to the '02 Dutch Star. Great for monitoring lots of stuff that's going on. Last I used it was with a 10" netbook and it worked fine even with it. I did have to get a sercial to USB adapter though since my VMSpc was so old it was before USB came out.
Would still be using it except that the rig we now have came with the VMS 400 CL which does the same thing but not all at once.
