You only need to do one or the other depending if you want *F or *C. Silly question... but are you sure you have all the numbers in correctly

It is still just stuck in the connecting.... and then shuts off.

do you think this has to do with mine being a 2013? is something not programmed to recognize it?

Anyone in here have it working on a 2013 yet? I see in the manual there is a way to "force" the codes to recognize different makes. VW is not mentioned in the manual?

At a loss right now

Mine is a 2013 and no problems. Make sure it is un-plugged and then start the car. Plug it back in. If that does not work call their Customer Service.

bummer ok. Yeah I did that. I got in started the car. Plugged the scanner into the obd2 port and it just sits there and does nothing and eventually just shuts off.

hopefully calling the customer service is not to much of a hassle.

Try plugging it in before starting the engine. ScanGauge should work just fine on the 2013.

Do you have another vehicle (1996+) that you can try hooking it up in? There could be a problem with your ScanGauge.

Ok probably a dumb question but there is only one place you could plug the scanner in right? I assume the purple port on the left side of the driverside compartment is the obd2 port :whoknows:

I am still trying to get this thing to work, I have been talking with the techs at scan gauge. I have tried to force the codes. etc. they want me to try it in another vehicle so that is on the agenda.

Does anyone know what Code their scan gauges are using?? CANXX?

I still use my scangauge2 on my steering column, but if anyone has an android device, you can buy the Torque app and it has a ton of gauges available. In addition to the app, you will need to buy a Bluetooth odb2 connector for it to work. The BT adapter I linked to is the one I purchased, and it has worked well for the last 4 months.

I don't have a recent screenshot, but here's an early one from when I was messing with it. Just to give you an idea what it looks like. There's about 80 sensors it can read from, and a bunch of different style gauges. You're not stuck with just digital. And it has a bunch of skins and themes.

Can you explain the conditions at which you captured 1300 EGT and 11 psi?

2010 JSW TDI MT. At 90 mph, it would be in 6th gear.

Ultra Gauge is less expensive and has a prettier interface but I believe it doesn't calculate fuel economy as well as the ScanGauge. That said, the built-in MFI calculates fuel economy better than either of the aftermarket options.

I do not know if Ultra Gauge has more/less/same functionality compared to ScanGauge.

I personally don't care about the trip/fuel measurements. Only gauges, like EGT, boost, load. Seem like it should work for this limited capability for half the cost.

I'm still trying to get an answer to a question I asked a while ago. Can any of these aftermarket gauges (ScanGauge, Torque, Ultragauge) actually read VW measuring blocks, as opposed to just generic OBDII PIDs. I really want to know if any of these gauges can read all 4 EGT sensors in CR diesels. I would really like a display that shows the after DPF EGT sensor so that I can monitor DPF regenerations. I would love to be able to display the pre turbo EGT and the post DPF EGT. I know that the sensors are there, but the only way I know of to read them reliably is VCDS.

I get the impression that these gauges work only by reading generic OBDII PIDs. If this is the case, my MFD and my Kufatec E-MFA tell me almost everything these aftermarket gauges can tell me. I don't want to spend money only to be disappointed. TIA

Have Fun!

Don

I just bought my ScanGauge, so I'm not as up to speed as some others. But, if you take a look at this link, it says that you can monitor four different catalyst temps: http://www.scangauge.com/support/xga...ansf-vehicles/
