New item scangauge "d"

Check this out: ScanGaugeD - Advanced J1939 & J1708 compatible Vehicle Monitor for Diesel Pusher Vehicles : Linear Logic

Camping World has it on "sale". Looks like a neat little package that is CHEAP to keep track of lots of interesting items while driving. It is an easy connection to your "service port" under your dash. Maybe some of you already have this NEW item. Can you let the rest of us know what you think of it? I haven't looked under my dash to see where this plugs into. I think this is where the codes may be read from........not sure. Someone have a picture of this receptacle for a Cummins? deSanford

I don't know long it's been out but there was some discussion about it a while ago. Much cheaper than a VMSpc, but does it read as much data?

Does anyone know off hand if there is a receptacle to plug into under the dash for Cummins engines? deSanford

Yes, I believe most (all?) of the Monaco coaches do indeed have that round receptacle under the dash. Some folks have said they had a tuff time finding it, though. Should be another one back by the engine, too.

I have the original ScanGauge model from back when I had a gas-model coach. Absolutely loved it! Not as broad of an information-display as the VMSpc, etc, but well worth the $$$ for what it told me. In fact, I still have it in the toad.

I installed (plug & play) mine before leaving Florida and I've enjoyed it all the way to Montana. My only concern is that the "speed" reading from the SGd is slightly higher than the Garmin GPS that is sitting next to it. I KNOW the Garmin to be spot-on so I'll check with the SG folks and see what they have to say.

The instantaneous readout for fuel consumption certainly confirms the benefit of engaging Cruise whenever possible.
Did changing my driving style, based on the available real-time information, pay for the SGd in 2500 miles....(DP towing 5000 lb toad)?
Probably...

How much did CW want for the unit, they wouldn't show a price online.

They had it on line and the folks at SGD asked them to remove the price on line. I called and it was about $152.99 with the Good Sam Discount Card, and FREE shipping. deSanford

I tried to buy one from CW about a month ago. Their website was down so I called customer service. I was told that because it was considered an "engine management" device it could only be purchased in a CW store. I called around (Florida at the time) and it was out of stock everywhere I checked.

I ordered directly from Scan Gauge, it shipped the next day, no tax, no shipping. I recall it being $169.

As is often the case w/ CW, YMMV.

I spent a few minutes on the ScanGaugeD web site and learned a lot by downloading the manual. Looks like a very nice addition for those of us who have inquiring minds. deSanford

To Rear Vue, et al, re: ScanGauge D speed...it comes with a default calibration for speed. To calibrate any ScanGauge (II, D or E) dead-on for your vehicle, the owners manual describes the procedure. Find a trusted mileage marker, like the 5 mile speedometer test sections on the Interstate freeways, and calibrate to that.
