Default ultra-gauge and prefered settings

I just got my ultra-gauge yesterday
and was wondering how you guys have yours set up?
as for as what info is more important to you.

right now I have the default settings


also a question on engine temp.
ultragauge shows 185 degrees after driving for 30 min. I just replaced a thermostat last week which was a 195 degree t-stat from pep boys that is what they said was listed for my truck.

So if the motor is only getting 185 degrees will the thermostat never open?

and how do I know if there is enough water in the engine block?

Never mind, found out that the connection is connected to the OBD port. This is so cool. I just might have to pick one up. Or two. Well maybe three (3 vehicles) lol

I'm also running the default settings on mine. Pretty much everything I want to know from the defaults.
