      Since theyre currently out of stock/restocking, theyre offering 5$ off for anyone who orders during this period.

      Ive wanted one ever since this thread popped up; and I just keep putting it on the back burner.

      Ill probably order one tomorrow. $5 more dollars off the already low price, probably not gonna get much better than that.

      http://www.ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/index.htm

      $54.95 (After the mail in rebate/test thing:D)


      If you dont know what it is; heres a little video:

      When we ordered our, we got it 3 days later. When we did the mail in rebate it took about 2 weeks to get it back into our paypal. Also, follow all their rules for the mail in rebate.. they are stickers about it..

      btw. We love it and even though its not supposed to see temps over I think 150F, Ours has read 178F and thats with stored out of the sun..

      I may get one as well. I believe you can calibrate it for larger tires correct?

      Yes sir, I was JUST reading on that this morning, it'l be nice not having to remember that 65mph is now 70, 45 is 47 etc. (With my new rims and tires)

      But I think the discount is gone now, as theyre back in stock and shipping tomorrow...

      Still a DAMN good price though, and I love the way this thing looks compared to the overpriced ScanGauges. I read quite a few bad reviews on the ScanGauges having problems also.

      No complaints from what ive seen about the UltraGauge besides a few had troubles getting the "Auto Gas Refill" feature to work (Whatever its called), and the fact that its not in Metric.

      Im stoked to get mine! I may even ditch my message center (Depending on if I can get this thing mounted cleanly somewhere and look like its not just velcroed on, or stick to the windshield) and throw a sport console piece in there so I have some storage space.

      Yeah its back to sixty bucks, still a great price though. Haven't seen any bad reviews yet besides that gas refill issue you are having. Can you still read your average/instant mpg if you are not telling it you have refilled?

      I plan to mount mine in the cubby hole where your message center is. I too will be looking forward to an accurate speedo/odo after I calibrate it. Just doing a little more searching on it before I bit the bullet. The problem is ill be on vacation when it will probably arrive!

      Ours is still working great. I haven't seen any issues with the fuel fill reset. I just hold the top button on the back/right down and after a few seconds it resets.

      I'm surprised its actually lasting with the extreme temps its been reporting thanks to the Az sun.

      The only complaint I've really been reading about it, other than it not being metric (I think they are selling a metric version now) is that it doesn't read vehicle specific sensors. In other words, it can't read the trans temp on the explorer since thats not part of the standard odb-II sensor list.

      I do like that it will tell me when there is a pending code or if an actual code has been set right away. I can then clear it if I need/want to.

      I don't see a personal need for metric. Why do you see the need for metric, Maniak? Just curious? I also wish it did trans temps, but the scan gauge doesn't either(i think). Regardless that scan gauge is 150 bucks, this is 60.

      We dont need nor want metric. I was just stating the complaints I've scene. Also, from what I've read the scangauge can read ford auomatic trans temps.

      Yes, that was another thing I forgot about...but if you NEED that feature, I guess shell out double the price for the ScanGauge:dunno:


      Maniak, don't you have a Civic? Have you used it in there? Specifically the instant MPGs how high have you gotten:D (Coasting at a decent speed)

      From my post in another thread... http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2710614&postcount=30
      I've seen it hit 325mpg before too, but thats upwards of 80mph. I'll see what I can get it to do tomorrow, but there is no way I'm gonna take a pic at those speeds.. :)
      My overall average for the last month, with a/c on, and driving 80mph is 36.6 mpg and I noticed it reads a lower mpg than I'm really getting when the honda is running in vtec-e (some valves closed).

      I ordered one and it shipped on the 25th... I still can't get any info from USPS on when it will be here... It will probably just show up Thursday or Friday...

      I can't wait to get this; But I have a leaking gas tank to fix this weekend first I guess to keep me busy...

      Not like work doesn't....

      It will probably be here tomorrow, 2 day shipping pretty much!

      I like it, but its WAY smaller than what I thought, and really confusing. I havent changed the gauge layouts yet. I still cant figure out where to put it.

      Gauge layout will be key. I'm back to using the factory configuration, But I'm still debating what gauges I want..

      Since the Honda has a tach, I find myself really only using it daily for instant and average MPG, distance to empty and fuel left. Otherwise I use it for reading the pending codes (it has an alarm when one is set) and to check/clear the pending and real codes.

      As for where to put it.. I left mind in the bottom left of the windsheild. I just have the cable piled up there for now as I really need to move it off the dash to keep it out of the sun even if I have the windshield shade to try to keep the temps down on it. I've seen > 170F a few times reported when I start the car.

      I hope you are right...

      BTW does yours read the tranny temp yet? Or is it an update for later in the year?

      Didnt even see this reply! But as for now, mines mounted under my mirror, but thats temporary. Todays the only day ive had off since I got it, and its been raining, so a more permanent spot will have to wait.

      I turned the alerts off, because I have an EGR code, and it kept popping up like every 3 minutes or so telling me.
