The ScanGauge II 3-in-1 Ultra Compact Automotive Computer connects to a vehicle’s diagnostic connector within seconds. It provides you with a trouble code reader, real time gauges and extensive trip computer.
It is able to read the fuel economy while you are driving, let you know when you are about to run out of gas, inform you of how fast your car was driven last night by your friend and many other functions.
It only takes a few seconds to install it and you don’t need tools. You also can move it from one vehicle to another.
It works on hybrid, propane, diesel and gas vehicles.
The ScanGauge II works will all of the OBDII protocol. This includes the recent CAN protocol.
This 3-in-1 automotive computer in a single small package combines as many as 37 digital gauges, a diagnostic scan tool and multifunction trip computer. It easily connects to the On-Board Diagnostic (OBDII) port of your vehicle and directly communicates with the auto’s computer.
If you aren’t sure whether your vehicle uses the Controller Area Network (CAN) or OBDII, it is not a problem. The unit automatically determines which system it needs to use and switches to the right one.
The ScanGauge II 3-in-1 Ultra Compact Automotive Computer can be used with all 1996 and newer OBDII vehicles, including hybrid, propane, diesel and gas ones, in addition to vehicles that have the new CAN systems.
There is a detachable cable that makes it easy to transfer it between different vehicles. The operation is menu-driven, so it isn’t necessary to memorize any complex sequences. You also don’t need any tools to install it.
Expandable Add-A-Gauge Technology Added.
The ScanGauge II 3-in-1 Ultra Compact Automotive Computer was redesigned to include expandable Add-A-Gauge technology (also known as XGauge). The original 12 gauges can be added to by customizing the ScanGauge II. It can monitor as many as 25 additional ones, depending on the sensor design of your specific vehicle.
You can display four gauges simultaneously. This can help with determining fuel consumption rates, save on gas and adjust your driving behavior. It also keeps its eye on engine speed, coolant temperature and many other things, all in real time.
If you let a friend borrow your car or have a young driver at home, the ScanGauge II is able to record speeds to 158 mph. It stores the information so that you can look at it later. That way you’ll know just how fast your friend or young driver was driving your car the night before.
You’ll know if the unit has been disconnected: the trip data will have an indicator that is displayed.
Hybrid Battery Charge (for Ford Escape and Toyota Prius)
O2 Sensor Data
Engine Speed (RPM)
Intake Air Temperature
Manifold Pressure (isn’t available with some vehicles)
Cost Per Trip/Cost Per Mile
Vehicle speed (MPH)
Fuel Consumption Rate (to 1/100th per liter/gallon)
And much more, depending on the sensor design of your vehicle
There is a diagnostic scan tool that is included with the ScanGauge II. It clears codes, checks for the DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) and is able to turn the “Check Engine” light off on around 99% vehicles that are 1996 or newer. (In Dodge vehicles, the feature might not work with some of the trouble codes.)
If there are any DTCs that are discovered, the ScanGauge II 3-in-1 Ultra Compact Automotive Computer shows the codes themselves in addition to how many there are. You can then use a repair manual or the Internet to determine which part is failed. Then you can either fix it yourself or know what is in need of repair before taking your vehicle to a mechanic.
Multifunction Trip Computer.
The trip computer automatically records four data sets: tank trip, previous day, today and current.
The current trip is restarted when the engine is turned off for longer than 3 minutes. If the vehicle hasn’t moved in 9 hours, the “today” trip restarts. The “today” data then gets moved into “previous day” after you restart your car. That way it isn’t necessary for you to reset your computer each time you start on a trip.
After you fill the tank up, “tank trip” resets. This offers you useful information such as “too empty” data. You can review it any time on your trip. Information from your Cost Per Mile gauge also gets integrated into the trip computer. Just enter in the amount you paid per liter or gallon of fuel. The ScanGauge II then calculates your trip cost automatically as you are driving.
- Fuel to Empty
- Time to Empty
- Distance to Empty
- Trip Fuel Economy
- Fuel Cost
- Fuel Used
- Driving Distance
- Driving Time
- Maximum RPM
- Maximum Coolant Temperature
- Average Speed
- Maximum Speed
There is a high-contrast, large LCD display that makes it easy to view information. The keys and display are both back lit. They can be set at high, low or off.
With the vehicle settings, tank trip data, user settings and 63 possible colors that are all saved automatically, and the ability to store and recall as many as 10 user commands, you can easily customize the ScanGauge II 3-in-1 Ultra Compact Automotive Computer to suit your individual needs.
