I don't think you can buy UltraGauge through ecomodder.

Here is the link directly from UltraGauge : UltraGauge [] : UltraGauge, OBD II Scan Tool & Information Center

Thanks CigaRoo7, I had just run across a YouTube video which also said that it was a direct sale affair. I have an email in to them to see if the firmware is updatable by the end user. I am not sure why I am bothering with the question...I am going to get it anyway.


P.S. It's ordered. One thing I discovered that using something like this can do is monitoring the actual cooling system temperature to see if the thermostat is performing properly without having to remove it and test it separately. Neat!

Hello -

I picked SG but that price is so good that I am thinking of getting an Ultragauge.

Is this Ultragauge the same folks that made the crummy $90 one that was shaped like a semicircle and would go wonky from greenhouse-car-heatstroke?

Thanks for the suggestion. I am going to do exactly that this week and make the change to UG. I got my SG2 just 6 months ago an although I love it to death it seems tedious to use and the display is a bit simplistic. Getting a better overall gauge for less money than my SGII is worth just seems wrong.. A deal like this won't last long.

Yeah, I *know* I'm kicking at a dead topic But I did want to start a new topic just to ask a little advice. I just got my Smart Forfour, and as a well trained Ecomod novice a good gauge is on my priority list. One problem though, the Forfour is a strange one in the Smart family. I came across several storeys that it's one of the few relative new cars that is NOT compatible to either SG or UG. Can any of you shine a light on this? The Forfour shares most parts with the Misubishi Colt 1.1 from 2005 and up, if that helps...
