    That's what I'm hoping for.
    Do you have the Ultra-Gauge? Is the wire long enough to reach the OBD2 connector if I mount it where I want?

    I have. Not a whole lot being sold. I missed out on a good deal on RCI near me and am still kicking myself.

    I ended up buying rci front and fuel skids because they were a good design and shipping wasnt thru the roof. I looked at Cbi skids originally but they wanted a lot of money to ship. so just depends on where you are located and everything. Most companies that make skids have good designs today, so just find one in a thickness of material that should work for your means and then find the closest company to you...lol

    Take an old garage door opener and removed the metal piece for the visor. Bend that to an L and it'll slide into the headliner. Attach the gauge to the other side. Then tuck the cable into the headliner over to the a pillar and down.

    I mounted my Ultra-Guage to the left side of my mirror and the wire length was fine.

    Works great. Sometime you have to unplug and plug back in to connect using ODB Fusion App.

    Edit: I guess it does use Bluetooth with my Iphone but I can still stream music and answer calls.

    Just put them on a couple months ago. I doubt I will have any issues with the place I go to.

    Good luck, let us know how it went or more importantly how much beer it took.
