    Default Ultra Gauge

    www.ultra-gauge.com

    After some extensive reading and googling, I came across a product called Ultra-Gauge

    I believe it was discussed heavily on Mazda Speed Forums;

    Product shipping was blazing fast, I recieved it 1 day after ordering. (From US to Canada... wow)

    If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the Access Port or Scan Gauge product, this is it.

    It allows you to customize and set up to 8 pages of gauges, with a maximum of 8 gauges per page.

    Upon plugging it into the ODBII port it automatically detects the car, and loads all the possible gauges into the settings.

    I use it to monitor engine temp, fuel PSI, voltages, Boost PSI, and a few others.... set to 2 pages 4 gauges a page. Automatically changes pages every 10 seconds.

    This is all customizable and totally user friendly.

    Grand total of $100.00 USD w/ shipping, for the version with suction cup mount and all the goodies.


    The only thing this gauge doesn't do is log and record , but I suggest you check out their webpage and read up on the features it does have

    This is not a replacement for AP in any way as it doesn't tune. If anything this replaces the dash hawk.
    But DH and aeroforce log which is super useful.

    I have a scangaugeII in my truck and love it, gives real time data...The guy I bought it from was upgrading to an Ultra Gauge..For the $ they cost and the benefits they give it is a great buy.

    Yeah guy this isn't a 'buy this because its better than an AP', of course a $60 product is not going to match to a $500 product

    It was a review, plain and simple

    It works well for what I needed, mainly engine temp and monitoring fuel pressure

    There was never any argument over whether it works well or not.

    I was just commenting on the bolded part comparing it to AP, DH, AF

    Yes, I suppose my wording could use some work as it might sound like they are comparable

    If anyone buys it expecting it to perform the same functions, then I have a pet rock they might be interested in as well

    Dash picture, it sits quite nicely in the bottom corner of the windscreen



    Cable is routed down into the port, and then tucked in behind the empty space to the left of the steering column

    Still working great as the day I bought it.

    It gives me the peace of mind when I glance over, and can see the engine temp easily.

    I did notice one day in very heavy start-stop highway driving that the engine temp was sitting quite high... never would have known otherwise!

    Also the recent very cold / mild temperature changes haven't affected the display in the least

    Will this let you see all of the sensors for the new etest? I would like to have an OBD2 scanner to check the sensors before going for an etest.

    As well as like a handheld scanner would? I am very worried about the new etest and want something I can see all of the sensors etc before going in.

    i dont think this will monitor the sensors in real time if your asking. if anything, itll probably read a pending code if something is wrong.
