Ultra gauge

read somewhere on here of the ultra gauge. Could not find. Has anyone used one? It is less than 1/2 of scan-gauge11. Called it up and seems to do everything SC11 does. Appreciate any info. Thanks

It will do everything a Scan Gauge and more i.e. read codes. I have been using one for a couple of years. We used it to monitor accurately coolant temperatures during mountain pass climbing out west and to keep track of MPG... Down load the manual, not easy to set up but does a lot!

Looks good until you read their pricing and rebate info. Makes the whole company seem shady at best.

I thought the biggest difference for some was the inability to read transmission temps. Does the newer Ultragauge fix that?

I just bought a new Ultra Gauge and it doesn't read oil pressure, or transmission temps, just how long to the next oil change.
I have a Scan Gauge and not only does it read codes but it too can turn them off like the Ultra Gauge.
The Ultra Guage seems to be geared more towards charting MPG, time to next fill up and miles to go before next fill up.
The only thing that I'm currently using is the coolant temp information.
I feel that the Scan Gauge is better.

I have an older Ultra Gauge. It works fine, but does not read trans temperature. It will read everything else. It does require programming to personal choice. Mine has 54 gauges available. It reads codes, you can set alerts for each gauge and generally does everything a Scan Gauge does but at a less expensive price. One other thing to keep in mind about trans temperature, it depends on the whether or not the CAN has the ability to read the temperature for that engine from the manufacturer.

I like my ultra gauge. No it does not do tranny temp but I have a gauge for that already. Easy to program and read. Her is where I mounted mine so it is easy to see. I like the way it scrolls through pages no many gauges can be monitored. It is cheap entertainment for me while I drive that gives me some valuable info.

I thought the Transmission Temperature gauge in the dash of our unit was a factory install, I guess now I guessed wrong then.

Ultra gauge

We have used ours, 2 + years. Works great. Take your time setting it up, and Follow the Directions, and you will have No problems. You have 4 'screens' with four options/read-outs per 'screen'. I use mostly my first screen only with RPM--MPG--Air/Eng Temps--Speed. Comes in very handy for the MPG in real time, when taking off from red light, or highway Entry Ramp! I like it!!
