    yup, make sure its got the x-gauge.

    I use mine to watch water temp during the summer as well as an accurate speedo reading since i have larger then stock tires.

    yup, plug into the port under the dash in like 1 minute lol.

    you jsut go through an initial setup to input your vehicle specs. Engine, tank size, set your tire difference. Its got a step by step, SUPER SIMPLE>

    There is no multitasking, which means the iPad cannot possibly hope to compete with laptops or even netbooks. There is no camera, meaning no Skype or video chat. There is no Flash support, meaning casual games, video sites, and graphic-heavy Web sites are going to be a no-no. The name is catchy but it does sound like a sanitary towel, and is a little close to iPod for comfort. Non-optimized iPhone apps look terrible on the iPad. There are no USB ports, You need an adapter for USB for god's sake, no HDMI port, and no GPS. And it's not wide-screen...

    explain enough? lol

    oh, my apologies. I missed the price...Yes the PRICE is a major drawback to basically a large paper weight you have to charge.

    I bought my SC for 130 used on here, had it for a few months and sold it for that same price. Its a neat little gadget but it loses it "coolnes" after a little while.

    That is what happened with me. Bought through a GB then sold here for $100. I did miss seeing the engine temps on cold winter mornings. My truck never warmed up before I got to work.
