    One thing is that I filled up the tank and it will not let me input how much I put in it and the speedometer gauge is very slow with the speedometer in the truck and it fluctuates up and down speed.

    You may need to increase the refresh rate. Be advised if you increase to much you could cause communication issues with the vehicle systems. Re read your input instructions for fuel as I ever had issues. I also have the reset and inputs copied in the truck for reference cause it is easy to mess up a step.

    Out of curiosity.... why do you have it set on Speedometer? As far as setting up for fuel tank you set that up at the start in the walk through screens IIRC. Never ever go by that though. That is just a "estimate" of what's left.



    Here is how mine is set up with the gauges I like.

    i think they're a waste. Buy a speedohealer to correct your Odometer/Speedometer and if you must monitor certain things buy a cheap bluetooth OBD2 reader and Torque app. Why bandaid an easy solution with another ugly gauge and something blocking your vision on the windshield.

    Just my opinion.

    Hardly blocking anything I would say. Ugly? Matter of opinion I suppose. I find it useful and it's nice knowing exactly what the engine temp is running along with the other gauges. So far for the year that I have owned it it has always been within +/- 1 MPG add to that the instant MPG gauge and I don't see a down side? I understand it's not for everyone but for $60 I love it.



    Now... Please tell me what it's blocking here? The dot matrix?

    Try being 6'8" in these. I need all the windshield space I can have. I think they're tacky and ugly.

    I bought it on their site a little over a year ago. They sent a $10 rebate with the UG IIRC. But the total price with mount was right at $60 after it was all said and done.
