New gauges w/em upgrade?
« on: July 14, 2012, 01:44:19 AM »
I have a '97 Land Cruiser 4.5 liter, listed as '95 on the website's gauge availability estimator. It shows the EM as having some items  not available on my classic including horsepower and UG voltage. Can anyone verify that? Will I get these with the EM upgrade?
Thanks!

You would get HP, but not UG voltage.  UG voltage was added to UG EM v1.2 and an older unit can't be upgraded to v1.2

This applies:

What older unit can't be upgraded to V1.2?  Is there any way to find out before one sends in their unit to be upgraded?  For the ones that can't upgraded, could possibly be a trade-in option?  ;)

All older units.   
A Classic can be upgraded to a pre v1.2 EM
A Classic or a pre v1.2 EM can't be upgraded to an EM v1.2.

Is there a list detailing the differences between the EM pre-1.2 and the EM v1.2?
Aside from the ability to read UG voltage, what else would be gained?

The difference is that V1.2 has a new gauge; "UG Battery Voltage".   This is in addition to the ECM battery voltage gauge previously supported.  Unlike the ECM battery voltage, UG battery voltage is always supported, regardless of the ECM supporting it.
The other change is another "Power On Detect" mode which allows UG to properly detect ignition on in Mini Coopers, Series 5 BMW, & 2012 Ford Focus. 

Unfortunately, previous version can not be upgraded to version 1.2
