Sounds like a suggestion for the ScanGauge programmers. A hypothetical "SG III" could have a wifi connection, or the "SG II" could have an option to download it's data (isn't this is a promise of future SG II firmware updates?!?!?) and then upload said data to an Internet database.

PS - "Game Gauge" isn't my idea but it fits the Nintendo-generation. I think I read it in an article somewhere.

Very cool. Anything that gets the general public into FE feedback is great.

Something as simple as an instant FE meter and Tank Average Display can work wonders for the average Joe or Jane. This looks to up the ante with advice -- great idea
