This sort of question belongs on a forum specific to your vehicle model

UG can be configured to show 8, 6 or 4 gauges per page.  It page can be individually set.

Add the items to your shopping cart, and then on the shopping cart page there is a shipping calculator.

Custom Mounting / Re: cutting the ug cable

There is no ideal place to cut the cable.
Some of the wires in the cable have a matched differential impedance.  The phone cord will not match.

Please do not cut the cord.  Instead,  crack open the case and unsolder the wires.   you can purchase a Self-Install Case replacement once you are done routing and resoldering the wires.

If you look at the sides of the case, you will notice 6 holes.  These holes mark the postion of the 6 snaps which hold the case together.  Insert a thin bladed straight screw at the parting line at the hole, and twist to break the snaps.

This is extreme, perhaps less extreme than cutting the cord, and I would encourage you to consider an alternate mounting location instead.

UG provides two means to estimate the HP and Torque.  One uses the manufactures % Engine Load.  This gauge is only as good as the equation or empirical data table created by the manufacturer.
The second method is independent of the manufacturer and is based on Energy into the engine modified by engine efficiency.

Both must be configured.  Use which ever seems to provide the most reasonable results.

Only version 1.2 has the correction for the Mazda defect.  Hence all pre v1.2 UGs will not power off due to the defect.

You have a Classic UltraGauge.
It can't be upgraded to version 1.2.
However, it could benefit from an upgrade to the UltraGauge EM pre version 1.2, which is nearly the same except for the Addition of a Voltage Gauge and new power on and power off detection modes.
More info here:

Thank you for the reply. Looks like I'll be sending in my UG for the upgrade.
Older units can not be upgraded to version 1.2

Its a defect in the Mazda.  Once the ignition is switched off, turn it back on and UG will shut off.
When the ignition is shut off on the  2012 Mazda 3  continues to return engine parameters equal to that of just before the ignition was switched off.
Version 1.2 of UG uses a completely different method of detecting ignition off and the Mazda defect does not create an issue

Boost will not be supported if the vehicle does not support "Intake Pres abs PSI" gauge (AKA MAP sensor)

If your vehicle has a barometric pressure gauge, then UG will adapt for changes in atmospheric pressure.  If not, then UG assumes sea level pressure.
Also, there are two sensors involved, the barometric pressure sensor and the engine's MAP sensor.  Due to inherent inaccuracies in these sensors, they will likely not agree exactly and a positive or negative value of Boost will be displayed with the engine not running.

HP1 is derived from the "% Engine load" gauge.  Put "% Engine load" along side HP1.
Also, there was a bug in UltraGauge EM's, prior to version 5/8/12, that affected HP1.   Check your version date:
Menu --> UltraGauge Setup... --> version

FIX:  In order for the KW1/HP1 or TRQ1 gauge to function, the “%Engine Load” gauge must be placed in the next display position.  For example, If HP1 is at position 2, and TRQ1 is at position 3, then % Engine Load must be placed at position 4.  Also, TRQ1 and HP1 should be in adjacent positions, i.e., 1 & 2, or 2 & 3, or 3 & 4, etc.   (This only applies to versions prior to version 1.2.  This requirement was removed on version 1.2)

Amazing job.
There might be some benefit to notching the plastic of the rear carrier around the light sensor opening.  Just to ensure you do not block the ambient light.

UG only supports OBDII.
I'm sure there are OBDI readers.  A Google search would likely be the best approach to finding one.
