    Hey Guys,
    Just installed my Scangauge...was wondering if there's a way to get the screen color amber...like the gauges.

    I need a Scangauge. Anyone want to contribute to the "Wilson just had a child and has no money to buy a Scangauge fund"?

    The Amber color is pretty darn close to the factory color, it looks like it belongs on the column where it is Velcroed down.

    It still amazes me just how accurate that little sucker keeps up with your gas usage/mpg. When I fill up it is almost always within a tenth of a gallon of what the pump says!

    you can also dim the lights as well. Much better for night driving.

    I hooked mine up temporarily to play with it and was surprised and disappointed that no information relative to engine oil is available. No pressure, no temperature, no nothing. I would have thought that would be big on the computer's list of things to look at while running.

    Something to consider... If you have the auto-dimming mirror, the BlendMount won't quite work like you think it should. I bought it only to realize this later and ended up mounting it another way.

    Used Roland & Maverick's photos from the Blendmount thread to feed the wire up from the OBD port up through the A-Pillar & headliner. Besides a screwdriver & nail file for the grab handle, the parts I needed came in the box, two twisties & velcro for the install. Using the back port, the cable pushes against the windshield, its nice & solid on the non-dimming mirror at both settings. Oh, color is red fwiw.

    looks good. I chose to use the side port for the OBD cable as it looked like clearance would be an issue for me.

    Thank you, yeah my bare bones stock manual mirror was good for something :D
    Yours look great as well, would have preferred the blendmount but Christmas, birthdays, & all my other expensive hobbies take my money too.
