Default Re: Ultra-Gauge Support/Ordering Thread

Is there a way to turn the brightness down at night or anything like that?

Seems almost blinding in some of the pictures.

Also anyone have issues with this draining their battery? I keep reading that this thing ghost drains the battery if kept plugged in... not something that I want to experience after work or when it's freezing outside..etc.


Lastly how is the comparrison with this from Torqued and a bluetooth obdII plug... All of that can be had for about $25 bucks compared to the $80 that the UG is.

Thanks,
-Nigel

Rangers aren't wired for oil pressure sensors that can be read by the UG. I was annoyed at no volt gauge too, my scangauge II had it

I ended up using Torque from Android market place and a $15 blue tooth OBDII adaptor... now I can mount the phone anywhere and get the same info... so far so good.

Resolved!

Okay I am trying to set ignition on and ignition off settings in the Ultra-Gauge set-up section and it is not in that section, where can it be found? The instructions claims it is in that section...

I just set it to default so I do not need help ....

I thought about that with my iPhone but I wanted something stationary and there all the time. Is that pretty accurate? I just got mine hooked up! Other than I haven't fiddled with it much but I like it so far!

Calibrate Distance
MENU

Vehicle Setup ..

Calibration..

Calibrate Distance
Use this menu item to calibrate all Distance Gauges. This calib
ration also directly affects th
e accuracy of all Speed, MPG an
d
DTE gauges. This calibration is especially necessary for
vehicles which no longer have the stock wheels, tire sizes,
transmission, or rear-end differential..
This calibration will also comp
ensate for inaccuracies in
stock speed sensor and the
vehicle’s distance measurement system.
Perform this Calibration prior to all other calibrations.
To perform the distance calibration follow this procedure:
1.
Align front tire with
first mile marker
2.
Reset the trip gauges:
MENU

Gauge Menu

Zero All Trip
3.
Travel to the next mile marker, aligning the front tire to the mile marker
4.
Select
:
Menu

Vehicle
Setup

Calibration

Calibrate Distance
5.
Change the value shown to 1.00 miles
*
, using the
UP
and
DOWN
keys
6.
Press
Menu
to save and set the calibration
Once saved, the calibration factor will be displayed at the bottom of the display.
Many roads will have mile markers, but avoid roads that are
not straight. Generally more markers will improve accuracy.
The
greater your speed
between mile markers the better the
accuracy of the distance calibration
*
If you chose to travel several mile markers, then enter in
the number of miles actually driv
en, for example, 3.00 miles.
NOTE:
Unplugging UltraGauge after calibra
tion will not cause loss of calibration.
NOTE:
Using the vehicle’s odometer to perf
orm this calibration is po
intless since the odometer and UltraGauge receive
distance information from the same source.

Here is what the manual states...good Luck.

Sorry about that I was hoping it would help...I sold my Ultra-Gauge because it was to time consuming for the gain for me....Hopefully somebody with a 97 will chime in...Good Luck!
