    UltraGauge OBDII Gauges

    I just purchased a UltraGauge for the ZHP. I was looking to add a Digital Coolant Temp gauge that would give a more accurate reading. When I found the UltraGauge I knew it exactly what I was looking for. This thing reads and clears engine codes, resets the "Check Engine" light, can monitor several parameters via the OBDII port. You can set alarms for the parameters being monitored which is really nice! If the engine coolant temp gets too high a beep sounds and the screen flashes. Very impressed with the quality and features with a unit that costs $70.

    Change the screen color to match the BMW dash!
    I will send you enough to do 2 screens for FREE!


    Amazon has the colored film.

    1. Cut a business card to fit the screen.



    2. Use the first card and cut out another 1/8" wider all the way around.



    3. Lay the larger card on the red film, tape it down to make cutting it easier.



    4. Finished product!



    5. Trim all four corners, aids in the install so they don't catch.



    Installed!

    Fuel Mileage
    UltraGauge continually calculates real-time Miles Per Gallon as you drive. UltraGauge displays real-time and average MPG to help adjust driving habits for maximum savings.

    With Real-time MPG, UltraGauge can quickly answer those age-old fuel efficiency questions specifically for your vehicle:

    Is it better to drive with the windows down or use the air-conditioner?
    Tailgate up or Down?
    Do truck tailgate & bed accessories help MPG?
    Is MPG significantly affected by tire inflation?
    Which gear is best when climbing grades?
    Which speed delivers optimal MPG?
    Does engine braking use more fuel?
    Does MPG change based on altitude?
    Although dangerous, does drafting really help?
    and many more....
    With UltraGauge its instant and easy!

    Unlike MPG gauges found in high-end vehicles, UltraGauge is not limited to displaying a maximum of 99 MPG, UltraGauge displays up to 999 MPG.

    Alarms
    UltraGauge features fully configurable alarms for every gauge. Both low and high alarms may be set and the trigger value of each alarm is completely configurable.

    UltraGauge continually compares real-time gauge values against configured alarm values. If the alarm thresholds have been exceeded, an audio and visual alarm will occur. The alarm window will display the set value and the current value. While the alarm is occurring, the particular alarm may be easily suspended and will no longer trigger for the remainder of the current driving cycle.

    The alarm siren may also be disabled to provide only visual alarms. Alarms may also be globally disabled so that both visual and audible alarms are disabled.

    An alarm may also be assigned to trouble codes or pending codes. Should a trouble code or pending code become posted while driving, an alarm immediately occurs. This can aid in the diagnosis of intermittent problems.

    It looks cool and price is certainly right. I'll have to check that out when you're in LA.

    That kind of thing is why I keep thinking about the Android based NAV units so I could run the torque app

    Will it report oil temp or oil pressure?

    I suppose either OBD II doesn't offer that info? Still this would display coolant temp and voltage, two of the items a traditional gauge set would show. This could be an alternative to Coolant Snitch, or combine this with the LeatherZ gauge package. The intake air temp would be interesting--could use that to see if the aFe air scoops lower air temp. The MAF output could be used to show how much extra airflow from a BMW or aFe intake vs. stock.

    I do believe the difference is year dependent. Earlier OBDII models can only give certain parameters. I have the Edge Insight CTS on my 2008 Duramax and it will display Oil Temp and Pressure. I was wanting to get one for the BMW but it's size was an issue. The only place to mount it is up on the dash with a suction cup windshield mount.

    UltraGauge supports the gauges described here:
    http://www.ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/TEN/gauges.htm

    However, the actual gauges available to UltraGauge is vehicle dependent. The available gauges vary based on Year, Make, Model, Engine Size and sometimes even based on the transmission. For example, a 2004 Ford Mustang with a V6 may support different gauges than a 2004 Ford Mustang with a V8. Unfortunately there is no way to know which gauges are truly supported without physically attaching UltraGauge and discovering the available gauges. However, Gauges such as MPH, RPM, Intake Air Temperature, Coolant Temperature, distance gauges, Run Time Gauges, and Mileage gauges are commonly supported.

    In an effort to help alleviate this issue, we have provided a Vehicle Gauge Availability Estimator. Please read the important information contained on the estimator page before use. The estimator can be found here:
    http://ultra-gauge.com/ultragauge/support/gaugelookup.php

    OBDII:
    J1850 VPM Early GM & Chrysler
    Ford Early Ford
    9141-Early Chrysler / Foreign
    KWP 2000 Rare, various
    11-bit CAN Most 2008 and newer
    29-bit CAN Most 2008 and newer Honda & Volvo

    9141 was found when plugged in to my car, 48 out of the 76 gauges available.

    Seems to be a nice unit - gonna read up some more...

    One big advantage of the competitor "scan guage II" vs the UG that I noticed is the size of the SG II is very slim, and the display color can be changed to match any car's dash illumination (a whopping 63 different colors!)
    ...if UG had THAT feature, for the price it will be a HUGE winner...

    SG II is a lot more expensive though...
