Default Re: ultra gauge... cheaper then scangauge

I have had no issue at all with mine. I run it, a GPS, a radar detector, and an amp with no problems at all.

Ultra gauge hands sown

Had a scangauge for 3 days I sold it cause the screen was small

This one you can have 6 gauges up at once and then have 2 pages of 6 gauges just a push of a button.

Default Re: ultra gauge... cheaper then scangauge

For those who have one, what "on mode detection" number do you guys have it set to?
My truck won't turn it on in the default (2) mode, which uses less power. I'm had to change it to mode (1) for it to start with the truck.

This is after setting it up and all (normal use)

I run mine on auto scroll. It changes through the pages every 10 seconds. You do know that is an adjustable feature don't you?

$39 was an introductory price when the guy started selling them. Even for $59 you can't go wrong.

As for the mode, I have no idea. I just installed mine and set up the guages I wanted to display. I starts up everytime I turn the truck on.

77 shipped is what I paid I missed out on the 39 dollar deal

As far as I know you can only get it from ultra-gauge.com

Delivery was fast 3 days later I had it.

Menu -> Ultragauge setup -> Auto advance.
From there you can set the time interval.
I found that I like a 10 second, or a 7 second interval. Just enough time for you to be able to glance at the gauge in between pages.

I like mine very much, I just can't leave it in the truck out here it gets tooooo hottttt

my 145 degree alarm has gone off twice even when the windows open 3-6 inches

So I might try to mount it where the dash pocket is right below the radio

Thats why I wish they would have a disconnect. Where you can just unplug the screen and take it with you.

yeah, maybe the next version will be more like a gps with plug on the side , would def. be much better.
but it probably has to do with the obd II connector showing something is hooked up?
just my guess, since it is always "hot"

We can put a man on the moon we can figure how to put a disconnect on a ultra gauge.
