    Wanting to get one of these soon, I know there's a ton of choices. Was mainly looking to monitor 3 different things as most important (Invertor temp, Engine temp, and Hybrid Battery life) is there an all encompassing one that does most of these ?

    Research the Torque Pro app.

    I know it does engine temp. I've read that it will do hybrid battery -- including individual cell values. Not sure about inverter temp.

    I haven't found hybrid battery voltages yet on the paid version..kind of disappointing.
