Well, I thought mine was going to use the Ford PWM enhanced data but it ended up requiring the Ford CAN enhanced data instead.

From the home screen >more > more > more > xgauges. Assign a memory space greater than zero. If this is your only xgauge then assign 1 to make the gauge active.

Then you're going to need to make five different entries in the exact order. Trust me, this is much easier with the engine running. If you're just sitting with the engine off, the device will go to sleep on you if you delay more than a few seconds. It's much more tolerant with the engine on.

To enter the data, you use the left top and bottom buttons to scroll higher or lower until you see the character you want. When you've finished entering one character, then tap the top left button to advance to the next character. Characters can be letters or numbers.

So here's the data (there are no oh's; these are always zeros:

07E0221674 for TXD

046205160674 for RXF

3010 for RXD

000100080000 for MTH

TFT for NAM

Click on bottom right button to save.

Alright so my new radio is in, but I only have 1.25" between the radio and bezel. How is mine different?

I'm thinking I could mount mine in my Expo center console somehow

best place is up by the mirror, much easier to glance over w/o moving my entire head to read it when I'm driving...

Hmm might have to take some measurements, that would be sweet.

How long is the cord?

I'm still wondering how someone can put the scangauge under or above a single din unit.

Do you have to mod the actual radio install kit so the radio sits lower or higher to allow for the room?

Is there pics or a how to I can reference?

I think that would be a good place to mount it, but I don't know if I can still mess with it since it's already in the bezel

I read that, but does that mean I have to mount the radio in the upper position now?

Either way I don't see how that gains another quarter of an inch, but I'll take some more measurements

No it doesn't matter which way it's in there I don't think. You can't gain extra space like that.

Any idea what brand of fit kit that is? Mine puts the headunit right in the middle of the opening, and leaves no usable space but a cubby hole 3/8" tall.

I think I'll be getting a scangauge this week, and this is how I want to mount it.

I wanted to mount it that way too. But my headunit was too big. It wasn't even close to fitting like in the pic.

I ended up getting an Ultragauge anyway
