ultra gauge... cheaper then scangauge

UltraGauge Automotive Information Center and OBDII Scan Tool


does anyone know anything about this item? i just saw it advertised, and it shows 6 gauges instead of the 4 scangauge does, it also reads, and clears check engine codes, it says regularly $200, but on sale for $39.95 after $9 mail in rebate... is this too good to be true??

hmmm. I like the look of the scangauge better, but $40 is pretty hard to beat

Actual video of it:

YouTube - Fun with UltraGauge

I think I might get one. Shoot its worth the 40 for the code reader. I want to see what the return policy is before ordering though.

Not a bad deal at all! If I didn't already have a Scan Gauge I'd be all over that!

until their gone, they have 3,766 units still in stock, and at that price, they might not last long if people figure out what they do, and how they help you change your driving habits to conserve fuel

Lol they've sold ten in the past 3 hours. I have a feeling that's a random number.

Okay I bought one. That 39.99 turned into 56$, awesome. Anyways, everyone buy one so we can all fail equally or brag about how our better looking gauge cost a lot less than a scangauge.
