Scanguage II - anyone use one of these

I've been having problems with signal voltage on my 02 sensors in my buggy(hoping it's a grounding problem). my buggy also doesn't have a RPM guage or speedo at the moment.

Was thinking of buying a Scanguage 2 and seeing what it can do but wanted to find out what others have done with one of these.

x-guage features seem to add a lot of potential. For the price it actually doesn't look too bad if it can last.

It only shows the sensors your computer reads...for example it doesn't show oil pressure on my TJ because the computer doesn't monitor that. As long as you have an OBDII connection and the sensors for speed and tach work it should do fine.

I've had mine for 3.5 to 4 years now, open Jeep, dust and rain, all the usual abuse and it's still running just fine. I mounted it on the steering comumn so I peeks through the center of the steering wheel without blocking the dash.

I can't answer the longevity in a buggy, but I have had one hooked up in my tow rig for a year. I like it a lot.

I moniter, boost, intake temp, rpm, and mpg. It has worked great so far. I've never had a problem with it.

I've got one in my DD it mainly since I wanted to monitor my fuel economy. It's a good little tool that's easy to setup. I've never messed with the x-gauge features.
