The Ultra Compact 3-in-one Automotive Computer
Scan Tool - Trip Computer - Digital Gauges
The integrated Trip Computer provides realtime feedback while simultaneously tracking three sets of trip data. The Digital Gauges give you realtime data for your vehicle and the built-in Scan Tool allows you to read trouble codes and diagnose potentially expensive problems before they get out of hand.

My review:

A few weeks back I happened upon a group buy (RPM) on LegacyGT.com for the Scan Gauge II (SG2). The price that they offered was the same as retail $160, with free shipping, and if 35+ people ordered we got a discount. When the group buy ended, I had a scanner for $140.

The SG2 is well constructed, and comes with a long (6 ft) cable that hooks into any OBD2 port. The unit itself has two positions for the RJ45 (ethernet type) plug, one on the side, and one in the back. This gives you a few options as how to mount it in the car. The OBD plug is also nicely made, with a right angle, so it's not jutting out weirdly.

The scanner works by interfacing with the ECU - so it'll only show the information that is readable by the ECU - if you have a sensor out (or not installed) then it won't show a reading on the scanner. For example, my speed sensor sometimes cuts out, which means my SG2 will read MPH as being 0, even though my tach will still read 2500rpm.

One thing I did find out though, is that BD/BG cars have a finicky OBD protocol - you have to set the SG2 up to read only "SUPPORTED" protocols, not "ALL". This is noted in the manual, which is quite detailed.
Until I had set the protocol to "SUPPORTED", my SG2 would switch off every 5 seconds, and refused to clear my CELs. Once I switched protocols (easily done via the mode buttons) things were all good.

Some of the nifty readouts I like using - volts, MAP, TPS and IGN.
Manifold Absolute Pressure
Throttle Position Sensor
Ignition timing
(I don't know exactly what the differing values mean, but I know what they values should be when the car is running properly LOL)

One of the coolest functions that this thing does, is you can change the color of the display. Right now I have it to match the green of the Legacy dash lights.

For the money spent, and considering that an Actron Scanner costs about the same - you get a whole lot of useful stuff with the SG2, that you don't get anywhere else. You could also work out a custom mounting solution for it, and it works in other cars as well (I just recently used it to diagnose a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire, a 2001 Ford F350 and a 97 Chevy Astro).

The SG2 gets a big thumbs up from me, and I'm pretty darn picky.

Size comparison.

I would take some pics of the my setup, but my camera is borked.

Hey Huffer,

I want to get one of these as well but I wanted to mount it in the 2nd DIN position underneath my deck.

I know I'll have to wire up some sort of mounting bracket but width wise, is it too long?

It's shorter than that.
It actually sits pretty nice on top of the steering column, and they supply a couple of velcro strips.

The scanner is so light, you won't need anything other than velcro to mount it.

It doesn't get in way of viewing the instrument cluster?

Only if you're short, or sit way back, gangsta style.

Look at the cable - it has an RJ45 (ethernet) connector. Compare that to the size of the unit itself (see pics above).

From the bottom of the "features" page

Compact Size - just 4.8"W x 1.5"H x 1"D

From what I've been able to find, DIN appears to be 7x2 inches, so you shouldn't have any problems at all mounting this in a DIN size opening, you'll just need to do a tiny amount of fab work to make it look good.

Yeah, Suby Solutions has this in their newest flyer/catalog priced at $169.99. I picked up a small OBDII scanner from the MAC tools rep for $60, but it has no real time display feed back like the Scan Gauge II. I think I'll be putting my MAC tools code reader up for sale now... =)

Digging up a dusty thread, because I just found out about this thing today.

There's an update that adds a TON of new features to the unit:

http://www.scangauge.com/support/xgauge.shtml

It's free for those who purchased the device on or after July 20, 2007, and $25 for those purchased before.

info here about upgrade (http://www.scangauge.com/support/upgrade.shtml)

Still recommend this Huffer?

I've got one now too. I like it a lot although there are some times when it won't turn on with the ignition. I still have to hide all of my wires, but I have it loosely installed in the lower portion of the double-din pocket. I don't think I'll secure it because I store some stuff in there. It fits snugly anyway.

In the manual it specifically talks about 1995-1999 Subaru's having trouble. I forget what the change is but it's in the back of the manual.

I'm averaging 22mpg at the moment.

I keep a count when I get gas. Ranges between 23-25mpg depending on how much in town driving I do vs. the 40 miles highway I do to work.

07-24-2008, 09:19 PM
ok, i found out now. in the manual pg. 22. There's a setting just for our 1995-1999 subarus. where it change the PIDs to Supported mode. and viola! the gauge stays on now and the readings are consistently jumping up and down according to the engine load etc...

so yes, the answer is read the manual :lol:

07-24-2008, 10:17 PM
Yeah that's what I was talking about before. The manual was in my car so I couldn't go find the page number.

Your manually calculated averages are probably more accurate vs. the instant MPG most of the readouts give actually.

Any chance that you can hook it up to a laptop too? The end of the cable that goes to the gauge looks like an RJ-45 (ethernet) plug. My brother's been looking into getting one of these soon, he's dying to break 40MPG in his Civic.

Man reading this thread has made my decision for me and If I get the job at autozone I might see if we can go a group buy through them if people are interested. I would see if we can get the same price as the employees or a little more but it's a 20% employee discount so it would come out to $127 or right around there.

So I bought 11 (5x Scangauge II 6x Scanguage "e") of these units for my Subaru crew.

http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/7926/img20111207114746.jpg
My fancy Scangauge II showing off the SS Bezel :smt007 )

Let me start off by saying these units are not perfect!

1) Even though the unit seems to respond quickly the concept behind OBDII can not keep up to the speed of our fingers.

2) You must wait in between menu's when you scan, check, clear codes.

3) Reading real-time values in the Gauge display system is not instant. By default these units are set to update values at a "NORMAL" rate. You can change this in the "Advanced Setup" menu. Set it to FAST.

(Warning)
2000+ Legacy / 02+ Impreza report glitchy results on "FAST" .. Change to NORMAL!
--> Flickering / MPH|KPH updates @ 8 second!! / Turns off every 5 seconds.
turbocharged subarus report glitchy results do to such rapid changing values.



PID = Process Identification
-- Used for all data collection.
-- Some PID's do not work like Air Intake Temp.


OBDII Support:

Pre-95 - Not supported
Some 95 OBDII equiped subarus
All 96+ subarus.

Installation:
-> All ScanGauge come with 2x pieces of velcro, OBDII cable and Scangauge Unit.
-> Attach velcro to Scangauge and then to your dash/steering column.
-> Simply shove/push the cable in between your steering column and the dash board. The cable will bunch up under the cluster/gauges and then just plug the connector into your OBDII port.

There are lots of "clean" ways to install the cable but in the end why drill holes when its as simple as shoving it behind the steering column.

Connections / Setup:

95-99 Legacy / 95-01 Impreza/Forester
-- MUST SET PID to SUPPORTED! If not unit will turn off after 5-10 seconds OR Flickers (On / Off)
--> Scangauge II -> More -> Setup -> Advanced Setup -> PIDS -> set to "Supported" not ALL.
--> Scangauge e -> More -> same as above but different menu structures.
--> SLOW/NORMAL/FAST all of them work...

2000+ Legacy / 2002+ Impreza/Forester
-- PLUG N' PLAY
-- No Need for PID settings.. These ECU's can handle all PID
-- Do Not set update rate to FAST!! Leave it.. default is NORMAL.

Mode/Protocol:
-- OBDII is a industry standard for automotive diagnostics and uses a Universal Connector
-- Every manufacture uses their own protocol to communicate with the OBDII port
-----FORD Products: PWM or CANSF
-----GM Products: VPW , ISO or CANSF
-----Chrysler Products: ISO, VPW or CANSF
-----Volvo Products: ISO, CANSF or CANLF
-----Others: ISO, KWPS, KWPF, CANSF, CANLF, CANSS or CANLS
-- Subarus can use a wide range of Protocols but in all 11 cases "ISO" is the proper protocol / mode

Functions:
Scangauge II: $155 CAN
--> All the features of the "e" but no fuel graph (honestly its pointless)
--> Daisy-Chain capable. (Install additional "II" or "e" for more gauges/graphs)
--> Larger 16 characters wide two rows.
--> Gauge info is displayed in full and shows 4 values .. ie. RPM/VOLT/Water Temp/KPH
--> Plug from behind or from side via RJ45 connector.

Scangauge e: $95 CAN
--> No performance features.. 0-60.. 60-0 . 1/4mile times.. lap times..
--> Shows fuel graph (smalll pixeled graphic.. pointless)
--> Only 9 characters wide with 2 rows.
--> Shows only 2 gauge values per screen. ie. RPM/KPH .. must push button for second/third/forth gauge value screen.
--> No Daisy-Chain feature.
--> Only rear RJ45 connection.

Troubleshooting:

1) No Response from the Scan feature / SCAN shows Not Ready / "?" question mark shows instead of the number of codes..
---> Reason: Com-link not established
---> Solution: go to GAUGE. wait for RPM to show proper value.. then go back to SCAN and wait for the code to be found.
---> OBDII system is slow!! Wait in between each command you send!

2) Scanguage turns off after 5-10 seconds
---> Your Subaru is 95-99 and your PID is set to ALL.. Change it to Supported. Turn engine off then on.. then go to GAUGE wait for RPM value to show. ALL GOOD.

3) Scangauge constantly flickers / only shows Volt value / Scan function does not work.
---> Scangauge has a tendency to change the Mode / Protocol every now and then.
---> Reason: Unit has been disconnected from OBDII port for to long... / Glitch in Com-Link protocol / Malfunctioning Unit / 2000+ ECU and using FAST setting
---> Solution: Force the Mode / Protocol into "ISO"
--->

4) 2000+ Legacy / 2002+ Impreza - Scangauge constantly flickers and turns off / Values are extrmely slow to update.
--> Scangauge receives values constantly from the OBDII / ECU and post-2000 ECU's send enormous amounts of data to the OBDII port.
--> Reason: This causes the Scangauge to get overwhelmed during its read function and causes the unit to glitch and turn off.
--> Solution: Change the Update Rate to "NORMAL" instead of "FAST". By default these units are set to "NORMAL"

Warranty / Upgrade
-- Linear Logic provides a 3 year limited warranty with a 9am-4pm 1-800 # to call.
-- FIRMWARE upgrades are available but require shipping the unit to Linear Logic.
---> Also if you purchased your unit before Jan 2011 you must pay $25 for the upgrade.
---> If your purchased after Jan 2011 you just have to pay for shipping one way only.


I will add more when I finish all my tweaking and custom XCommand's for our Leggy'

Awesome information, thanks! I seem to have lost my Scangauge II entirely, or someone stole it. :mad:

That sucks... You can always call Linear Logic and give them a sob story.. it works with Subaru of America / Canada :-D


More info updated

I love my scangauge!!

Perfect all-in-one units.. Instant battery / alternator readings.. So nice to see 14.2volts on the highway :-D

I love mine!


The only gripe I have is that the OBD2 connection is not really secure... driving between sacramento and portland without the scanguage disconnecting was a real challenge.

I am seriously considering hard wiring it in.

All OBDII ports on every subaru are fixed and very difficult to move..

Is it possible your ODBII port is damaged?
