I also have run both. If buying new, edge costs the same as smarty with gauges. I bought my smarty brand new & got it for $550 to my door, just have to shop around. As far as the edge gauges, they are not as accurate as real gauges, but they are close enough to be safe. The edge is nice for its on the fly adjustability, which can sorta be done with a smarty (by using the POD feature) but its not really the same thing. The edge seemed to tow better on the tow setting than the smarty but maybe I just haven't found the correct smarty setting yet. The smarty is a lot more customizable, meaning that if you ever plan on really hopping up the truck, it will be better for you. It can turn off certain things in the computer such as the electronic wastegate on 04.5 & newer trucks & the over boost codes on 03,04 trucks. These are essential if you ever go to an aftermarket turbo. Edge cannot do this. Finally, as far as all out power, the smarty definitely has more! I didn't have the hot unlock on my edge, but even on lower settings with the smarty, I feel it has better throttle response & better mileage too. One other thing about the smarty is you get free software updates for life on their website, & can even switch over to TNT-R for free if you get mod crazy. It may sound like I'm on the smarty side, but I'm really not. I like them both, they just have pros & cons & since I have used both, I thought maybe I could enlighten you to them.
