For those following this thread, the interview is now up at metrompg.com:

There isn't a lot of new juicy technical info that people who follow the news & rumours about the SG don't already know. Maybe a couple of things:
  • - how a troublesome Canadian made Ford F-150 led to the development of the SG
  • - the intention to add user-definable "gauges" to the SG2 for vehicles which offer more info through ODBII than the standard pre-defined set of gauges (e.g. your vehicle may have multiple temp sensors, gear indicators, etc.)
  • - the fact that the current unit is currenly using less than 1/2 of its processing capability, leaving lots of room for future SG2 improvements via downloadable upgrades.
  • - Ron's assertion that the SG2 will have a "long shelf life" - meaning the focus is on software development, not changes to the hardware.
