Gotcha... Thanks.
Don't bother with the pictures, I understand. I thought it was clipped on to the mirror somehow.

What is that you're using... it looks like a conduit clamp. Nice set-up.
The bike reflector mount is a good idea too.

Thanks

Why would you want to do that?
Re-read the calibration directions.

I love mine. Bought it for keeping track of MPG, and it does that great.

Also provides a tripometer, and tachometer, which my bare-bones truck did not come with.

I can also monitor my TPS, MAF sensor readings. Now I'll be able to tell if one of them craps out, when the readings go out of whack.

The main thing I don't like about it, is the 3 buttons on the back side can be awkward to get at, depending on how its mounted. I hope a newer design puts those buttons on the outer edges.

Also, I wish it would display the tranny temp. I have a sensor, but the readings are not available to the UG.
