I got my second on the first was just to big now I am thinking to use a Bluetooth on with the IPhone.
Love is alway good to know what's going on under the hood. Engine load and oil temp as well as transmission temp is what I keep a close look on.

What device are you using to get oil and transmission temps? I don't think the Scan Gauge will give me those parameters.

My User Manual says it can measure tranny temp. but some vehicles either can't or you have to do special programming. No mention of oil temp.

I have a Scanguage2 on my T1N and it does not read oil or tranny temps. I monitor LOD, RPM, MAP and volts or gph. I think I have improve mpg keeping the LOD below 75% even when it requires higher rpm's.

To me, guys, this is too much information.

I understand the draw some have to gadgets, but is this kind of thing really necessary to take with you on the road?

We have good engines in these rigs which, if well maintained, should serve us well. Ours is approaching 149,000 miles, and has never given any trouble. It is carefully and religiously serviced.

It's just getting good and broken in, from what we have always been told. If they were fragile and required intense monitoring, we wouldn't buy them. Would we? No, we wouldn't. Why monitor intensely, then?

I wouldn't want to be focused on all of these little readouts, as it would seriously detract from the enjoyment of being out in the Interstate.

There's fun to be had, a country to explore and people to meet! Get out there and enjoy yourself!


Maggie

Maggie for some of us this is a additional toy and a toy needs gadgets but we still do everything you said. It's for the boring time driving a long stretch highway.

For me the additional information allows me to relax even more and enjoy the trip. I will have to read up on the Ultraguage as I like the prospect of knowing tranny and oil temperatures too. I may get so relaxed I will have to ask the navigator to drive!

Sorry - but you don't have transmission temp on that display. Not meaning to be critical - just want to get you the facts.

At top LH side of display That is UG voltage, which is the vehicle battery voltage measured by Ultra Gauge. On top RH side I see MA2 g/s, that is Mass Air Flow 2 in grams per second. I don't think you will find that useful.

In the middle line RH that's engine temp, likely the coolant temp in a Sprinter. The note in UG owners manual says diesels MAY report oil temp, but my guess it's just coolant temp. Then again it doesn't matter much because the Sprinter actually has more oil than coolant in engine so the two temps should always be close.

In the middle LH that's UG temp; merely the temp of the Ultra Gauge, not the oil or transmission. UG temp is there because the display unit can get overheated sitting up on the dash in bright sunlight.

The bottom line displays are mileage to oil change and service as calculated by Ultra Gauge based on how you set it up initially.

I like the larger display on the UG but it is not able to report transmission temp just like the Scan Gauge can't.

Hope this helps,

Mike you could be right. But I see a difference in reading engine goes around 200 UG is around 100. I assumed it is transmission as it also records the mileage on it.
On the next long trip end of this month I will investigate a little more.
Thanks Peter
