mihgt be like the lo-jacks in my old weed man trucks. if you hit a certain speed, it would beep like crazy untill you lowered the speed. my former boss forgot to disconnect it and had to drive like 4 hours or something on the highway with beeping like mad.

is there a rating on this yet? is it worth the $50?

Installed my ultra today. Mine seems to 'update' faster than my scangauge ever did. So, all I can say is so far so good...

So are we gonna get daytime shots? I'm interested if it works and looks as good as scangauge.

I'd like to see it mounted somewhere other than the windshield

Just wanted to share a little video I made of mine. I ordered last thursday and got it today fast shipping and good product.

PS: The screen is great those blue numbers in daylight look like and sticker almost fake, the background is pure black and the letters are bright blue, much better than the scangauge for sure.

Hmm little slow on the loading, but the display doesn't look half bad.

How long is the cord?

I would guess 6ft cord. Great video, thanks for doing it. I'll probably be ordering one after payday.

With the buttons on the top and bottom like that, it kinda limits your options for mounting

It only loads slow the first time you pluged in your car, after that it instant display everytime you start your car.

The cord is very long, I will take another video in a few minutes showing more feautres. I LOVE IT, I had the scangauge and a MSD dashhack in my other cars, this one is excellent even at $100 I will buy it again.

YES , the MPG average it shows you at least on my ranger a difference of 1.6 MPG of difference leaving my rear gate open or close. Instant MPG works excellent it refresh instantly, the Intake Temp sensor changes value instantly also when you take off or acelerate the engine.

I recomend this gauge to anyone, they might come in a brown box with no printed color images but the quality is good, you can adjust the MIN/MAX brightnesses and change from fixed or automatic diming (light sensor is in one of the corners)

You wont be dissapointed if you buy it.

Here is a new video showing how fast it reads the gauges once it setup for your car.

The cord is about 5 feet long.
