I have heard back from the PLX people about a GB and they said we can do it, but we need a minimum of 30 people, we will be offered a 10% discount.

We can order either of the devices, keep in mind the MPG will not be available until March.

That's not the Kiwi though. He has the DM-200. It doesn't calculate MPG.


This is the Kiwi:

KIwi does anything you want it to. Well you're right, the kiwi BT adapter doesn't calculate MPG, it doesn't calculate anything, it just sends data. Your software calculates.

Therefore, it will do anything you want. WOrks like a charm, for what its worth. I mean nothing anyone really would need, but it does what its supposed to. Fun toy.
