They are pretty neat, I've had mine for about 6 months. It's nice to get 'real' voltage and water temp. readings, but the mpg setting just depresses me. :(

when it says that you can make codes to send your computer does that mean tuner codes?

i think they are referring to going on their site and uploading new features. theres no tunning to these. it just plugs into the obd2 port and gives you a digital readout of what the computer gets.

Once it's warmed up it stays right about 197.

that does look pretty cool -- I don't know that seeing my mpg is going to be good for my health... It would be neat to have that kind of information, though.

My big question is what about the guys with bigger tires? I'd like to have my speed and mpg's accurate if I had it. Anyone know if you can fix the tire size with this thing?
