General Discussion / Re: Will oil pressure be added?

So WHEN will UG support custom PIDs?  There was a lot of talk about this and I assumed is was to be in the EM firmware, but it isn't.  When, UG, when?

Actually I'm a bit disappointed in the EM.  Cost me over $20 (w/shipping) to get the ability to change refresh times and add some "short trip" MPG /mileage readouts.  I was expecting (obviously mistakenly) the ability to add custom PIDs.  Not so.  Certainly no new OBD gauges beyond those in the basic firmware.

Can't see why they charge new buyers the extra $10 for metric (which it should have had anyway) and some slight set of new features.  Sigh.

I'll chip in here to say that apart from the gauges and uses that it's intended for, the one thing I have to give the greatest kudos to UG for is the outright visibility!  I use mine in a convertible, and even in the brightest direct sunlight it's easily readable.  The combination of anti-glare coating and back-lit inverted display beats all the others out there.  Way to go designers!  Thanks!

There's a great big sticky at the top of this forum saying "LOOKING FOR SUPPORT?".  Contains the link  :)

This is an item that should work with most cars, but possibly not all.  Folks can't respond without knowing the exact make and model (& year) of your car so that those with an UG and the same car could respond.  Since you are getting info for other readings, most likely is it's your car that's the issue, not the UG.

Still, you should raise a support ticket and they can tell you directly.

Woo hoo!  Love to be able to read Oil temp in my car (Solstice).  Other OBD gauges can read it though UG cannot (yet).  Can I be a beta tester if I already have an UltraGauge? (I.e can I send it back for reflash?)

General Discussion / Re: Firmware version/update list?

Look at the revision list on page 48 of the user manual.  There was never any other list posted on the site.
Ahh OK - I see that now.  I would respectfully disagree though, there used to be a 'upgrade' page.  But never mind, the manual update section is good enough. Thanks!

General Discussion / Firmware version/update list?
« on: March 23, 2011, 08:52:06 AM »
When I bought my UG last September (and I LOVE it by the way :) ) there was a page on the site listing the firmware upgrades, dates and additions/changes.  I came back to the site yesterday to see what has happened in the firmware in the intervening months, but that list is nowhere to be found.  Why was it removed and could we get it back?

I've already found that there has been (at least one) useful change in the addition of 'Power-off' setup that I could really use (my UG stays on for up to 10 mins after I turn off the car) - but I found that by mining some of the posts on the forum and then re-downloading the user manual!  That shouldn't be necessary.

Thanks, TS
