Default outside/inside temp sensor

Does anyone know of any guages you can put in that will show the outside and inside vehicle temperatures? I love this on my dads truck and moms marauder!

Yes OHC for outside temp. I've looked around to find things for inside temps and I havent found anything yet.

Couldn't you run two of the outside air temp sensors in parrallel. One for outside one for in, and just flip a single pole double throw switch for 1 wire off each sensor?
