So everyone is still happy with their UG over the SG over time? It still very accurate? I think next week I'm going to order one.

My Ultra Gauge came in today and I'm looking forward to playing with it. I expect it to be as accurate as anything that displays numbers fed to it by the car's ECU.

..."raw" numbers should be exactly the same, regardless of device. It's the "derived" and internally-calculated numbers and values where differences are most likely to pop-up, ie: *how* those algorithms were designed and implemented.

Point taken. What I was aiming at was the "over time" part of the question. My real point was that those derived numbers will either be accurate for a particular vehicle or they won't be, and once you're satisfied with its accuracy that shouldn't change.

I have my UG in my xB and my SG in my wife's Elantra. The UG is still very accurate, & I prefer it over the SG.

I got the gauges the way I want them and I'm thrilled with it. The DTE and average mpg are off because I didn't reset the trip when I filled up. I'm curious to see how the fuel level works out, and I still need to enable the DFCO on it. I'd like to mount it properly, but this is such a solid "good enough" that I think it's going to last a while.

I have had my UG for a few months now. I can tell you this thing is very sturdy. The alarms you can set are very cool, like for oil change intervals for example. I love the display and ease of use. It is a very intuitive design interface. Glad I started this thread!

I've had my Ultra Gauge for a little less than a week now and I love it! Still learning details like how to calibrate fuel and what gauges to list on the first page but it's helped me learn where I'm wasting fuel. Now I'm adjusting to avoid those driving situations. Great tool!

Looks like it was delayed to mid-August.
I'll shoot them an email to ask when it'll be available.


Bummer, got an auto-reply :

Thank you for your interest in becoming a beta test customer for the English/Metric version of UltraGauge.
UltraGauge EM, as it is called, will be released shortly and as such the beta program has come to an end.
