Anyone have experience with P3cars gauge

Has anyone installed this and had time to play around with it?
Might be a cheaper/cleaner solution to a gauge pod

Thanks.

Thanks for all the inputs. For those who have this gauge I have a question. Lets say t hat you track the car ... if you set your display to "IAT", after the session is over, can you look at your peak IAT, coolent temp, EGT, etc .... or can you only view what has been displayed during your track sessions.

Thanks.
