Supported gauges?

Solution

UltraGauge supports the gauges described here:


   UltraGauge Wired

   UltraGauge Wireless: For Standard Gauges look here; For Performance Gauges look here.


However, the actual gauges available to UltraGauge is vehicle dependent. The available gauges vary based on Year, Make, Model, Engine Size and sometimes even based on the transmission. For example, a 2004 Ford Mustang with a V6 may support different gauges than a 2004 Ford Mustang with a V8. Unfortunately there is no way to know which gauges are truly supported without physically attaching UltraGauge and discovering the available gauges. However, Gauges such as MPH, RPM, Intake Air Temperature, Coolant Temperature, distance gauges, Run Time Gauges, and Mileage gauges are commonly supported.

In an effort to help alleviate this issue, we have provided a Vehicle Gauge Availability Estimator. Please read the important information contained on the estimator page before use. The estimator can be found here

 

Manufacturer Specific Gauges (such as Trans temperature)

The OBDII standard defines roughly 135 parameters that can be accessed via the OBDII port.  About half of these are useful.  The OBDII standard was created primarily for emissions reasons, as such most of the parameters pertain to emissions.

However, manufacturers have the ability to access additional vehicle parameters beyond those specified in the OBDII standard.  These are proprietary manufacturer only parameters.  These parameters are available via the OBDII, but require special codes.   These codes are not made public by the manufacturer and Ultragauge.com does not have these codes nor do we know if they are available for your vehicle.

The best source for codes is an automotive forum specifically for your year, make, model and engine size.

Please note that only UltraGauge MX and UltraGauge Blue are capable of reading manufacturer specific gauges, and only if the codes are available.
