    I've had it for about a week and I'm pleased with it. You can't beat the price and I think it looks better than the scan gauge.

    I was talking to the manager at autozone ad he told me they aren't allowed to read trouble codes anymore. So the ultragauge is worth the low price.

    Well worth the money. Shipping is super fast as well. I got mine in two days. I installed it yesterday. Install is easy and it seems well built. It looks better than the scan gauge and will pay for itself if you ever see how much the stealership charges for a diagnostic check on your truck. It monitors damn near everything and is easy to set up if you download and print the directions. For the money it cant be beat! Check my post from earlier on my preliminary thoughts on it. *Added bonus-you can calibrate it to show your true speed and mpg's if you have larger tires.* I'm a bit of a gadget nerd so I'm happier than a pig in mud with everything it displays.

    I've had mine since Xmas and I think it works great. I found out after calibrating it I was getting better mileage than I thought. I like the fact you can change the readings to any position you like . I have engine temp. battery voltage, actual MPG. average MPG and DTE and Gallons left on one screen.

    Worth it to me.

    I just got mine this past week. I'm in the same boat as the other users...I really like it. I calibrated for my larger tires and found I was getting better MPG than I thought. I can see how heavy my foot is when driving, est. miles remaining, amt of fuel used, etc. Well worth the money for it's capabilities, IMO.
