    I like it...good purchase. Some ppl might say its a waste of money but its your money. Do we really need new exhaust systems, bigger tires, 3in lifts and other cosmetics to make our truck different from others? So were all wasting money? NOT... we spend money on what curbs our desires :thumbsup:

    stock and very pissed about the issues
    Machine gun mount. Would love to blow the shit out of it since it has nothing but issues. QA at Toyota USA is shit. Start making them in Japan for Christ's Sake!
    I kind of like it but that blue has to go. I also want it to be wireless or be able to disconnect the cable from the back.

    I am thinking of getting a RAM mount for a laptop and install it along with a Macbook pro. I wonder how many people would think I am a cop:D

    I think I will have more options with a laptop and I can run all sorts of crap on my Mac. Yes, I like electronics, but this gauge does not tickle me like many of you in here.

    I agree...........got mine yesterday . I have a question tho. You are able to turn off the check engine light with this unit. I will turn mine off and when I exit the page to go back to the main screen it comes right back on. Is this normal?

    I kind of figured that. I thought it might have been a feature that let you turn it off still knowing you had a previous problem and then come on again if a different code showed up. Thanks. Now I have to pick up a couple of o2 sensors.

    YEP exactly right...to most people, what color the badges on my truck are, or that a satoshi mod looks different from stck... DOES NOT matter in the slightest, or paying 1500 $ for a suspension lift would seem insane.... for the most part, no-one cares, thats the truth, lol
    Why buy an Ultragauge? because you can......I'm not gonna tho, lol

    Just saw this... It seems all of you guys like it. I am seriously thinking of getting one now. Thats what bugs me the most about my truck is I drove a 09 chevy and had all the monitors and my yota has none. Does it seem like its truly accurate or does it just average numbers based on the calibration info? Hell for $60 I guess it doesn't really make a difference for the decision to purchase. I would like to know though.

    Considering the stock speedo is off, that's probably not a bad idea. Can you still get to the back of it? I ended up mounting mine above my rear view mirror. Basically I Velcro'd a plastic stick to the back of the mirror, then Velcro'd the UltraGauge to it. I finished the calibration today too because I run 285s over the stock 265s. I zero'd the trip meter then after a 20+ mile trip I did the math on the difference and entered that new number.

    Rich "STEP OFF DUDE" I don't like your front bumper either, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't have it. Let the guy have his toy's and enjoy!
