Question ScanGuage II out of favor?

I'm wondering if the Scanguage II has fallen out of favor with the ecomodder community. Have newer products replaced it? Is it considered obsolete?

I just got a cheap Bluetooth adapter ($23) from Amazon and got the professional version of Torque based on someone else here using it. I have a droid Incredible II for the display. I also have an MPGuino since I have a lean burn car but I think that Torque is outstanding. A ton of flexibility and features not found on other gauges. You can select not only the gauges that are on each page but the type of gauge as well. You can log certain gauges and even have the ability to use maps of your routes, etc. I think it's the best choice and it's for the price of an MPGuino. OBDII only of course.

The Scangauge II costs twice as much as an Ultragauge and can only show half the number of gauges at a time. In my opinion, the only reason to get a Scangauge is if you have a hybrid or other vehicle that can make use of x-gauges.
I've had an Ultragauge a couple years and its been great. I got a hybrid over the summer, so I bought a Scangauge II and a splitter. I can still use my Ultragauge and take advantage of the x-gauges my Escape supports (I just have to get it set up).

My thanks to all responders to the OP. This explains why my offer to sell my ScanGuage II in the classifieds has received zero responses. Oh, well... guess I'll just keep it and chalk the poorly informed decision to buy it up to experience!

BTW, what's a fair price, used?
