        I made a bracket out of 3mm aluminium that attaches to the dash with double sided tape and has a cut down Ultragauge clip epoxy glued to it. The bracket means that the Ultragauge is within easy sight, does not obstruct any factory gauges, screens or buttons. I also painted the bracket satin black to help it not be as obvious.

        The ‘connection point’ is the OBD11 connector under the dash between the steering column and the centre console.

          Mine's in the same spot as Dicko and the TPMS sits behind it.

            My TPMS is also behind the Ultragauge and on the dashboard. Both are very easy to read and I rely on the Ultragauge for my speed reading. Factory speedo is not accurate and not as easy to read as the digital Ultragauge.

              I notice the scanguage is less obtrusive in size that the ultraguage although the Ultraguage seems very popular.
              any negatives re scanguage?

                Had a scan gauge and found it very hard to read with it's small screen. Also found it fiddly to operate. Been running Torque Pro for years on an old phone and a tablet. .

                Ultra gauge looks pretty good. Torque costs less than $30 to download. No idea the cost of Ultragauge.

                Ultimately it's your decision what you purchase.

                  Bit of a discussion on here about scangauge or ultragauge

                  https://www.pajeroforum.com.au/forum...-or-ultraguage

                  For what it's worth, I have an ultragauge. Liked the look of the larger display. I find it easy to see with a quick glance. Mounted pretty much the same as dicko.

                    I have a Scan-gauge II because at the time this was the only option, if I was to buy again it would be an Ultra-gauge because the display is easier to read in daylight with sunglasses on and you can set alarms which means you do not need to remember monitor it.

                    OJ.

                      I second OJ about the Ultragauge. I have the Scangauge and whilst it is good, I believe the Ultragauge is better because you can display more parameters and can set alarms.

                        I had Torque Pro on the phone before the Ultra Gauge but I just didn't want to trust it to reset codes when I'm in the outback so went for the better option. Now I use it all the time to monitor transmission temp with Auto Mate.

                        Dicko....doesn't the Ultragauge read speed the same as the factory speedo ? So while it's easier to read on the UG, isn't it still adjusted to read over ?

                        I have a GPS unit for speed reading and agree about the factory gauge in the dash, it's hard to read accurately while driving.

                          My ultragauge seems to display the correct speed, different to the factory speedo, not sure why At 100 kmh the speedo reads about 104, checked with GPS, ultragauge reads 100 and as a bonus is easier to see.

                            I'll check it against the GPS speed next time I go out.

                              It's been a while since I toyed with my Ultragauge but from memory the distance calibration affects the speed reading.
                              Unless newer versions than mine don't require calibration. Dunno.
