OBD1 to OBD2 adapter possible?  Can Ultra read info ok then?

I'm asking cause i just bought a 95 Geo prizm and i sure would hate to lose my ultra gauge info.
Like RPM since no RPM is on the dash in this car.

If not possible is there some other ultra gauge like scanner i can buy for OBD 1?

thanks!

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

Different type of computer language and lack of sensors that report back to the ECU...plus the lack of an available market will make any conversion reader (if they even exist) very expensive.  You might be better off doing an ODBII coversion from a later Geo Prism model or even buying a newer Geo Prism.  :(
