Scanguage 2

I've noticed a lot of u are running these. How do u like them? Thinking about pulling the trigger on one. But will it disable the seatbelt warning on my 2012? I always wear my seatbelt on the road but checking my land at 5 mph I won't wear it cause I get I and out a lot. Any help would be appreciated guys

The ScanGauge products are all pretty much passive scantools. Other than clearing DTCs, they don't affect the ECU. A dealership may be able to disable the seatbelt chime using techstream, the Toyota scantool. Whether they will of not seems to depend on the dealership.

Ok thanks. They read mpg and trans temp and other things like that right? It seems like it would be a good investment though. Doesn't most people really enjoy there's

I think it's a handy tool, and I keep it in the truck. The SGs can read many different sensor outputs, and can calculate real time fuel economy. UltraGauge is another option, but I don't think it has as many functions.

I like mine. Use it mostly for real time fuel readings like MPG and estimated distance to empty. Haven't needed it for any engine codes, but I believe it will read and clear them as well.

Got mine used. Love it. Mostly for mpg. Has definitely adjusted my driving habits by knowing this.

Another alternative is the ultragauge. Just got my ultragauge this weekend and like it so,far. I have to calibrate the mpg but its def worth the money IMO.

I think they look better too... they do the same as a scangauge and are priced way better.

I'm pleased with mine.

FYI, both units will not cancel out the seatbelt chime in a 2012+.

I agree that the UG looks nicer, but I believe the SG can monitor some sensors that the UG can't, such as ATF temp.

Yup, tranny temp and hybrid batt status.

Thanks for the links, and same here.

I have no connection to SG and purchased mine long before the UG was available. I suspect SG will be forced to update their interface to remain competitive with the UG. The main point to remember is that if you want a specific readout, don't assume either one will provide it. Some vehicles may not have a sensor monitoring what you're after, or one gauge may not read an existing sensor's data. I'm just glad that these two products are on the market. I've had a DTC on a long trip and I really appreciated how easy it was to determine how serious the problem was, and to clear the CEL.
