Default new PLX gauges module

For anyone who is interested, PLX has finally released information on a new generation multigauge module. They have been sold out of most modules this year and I was afraid they were bailing on the market in pursuit of silver-impregnated sheets and fancy LED flashlights.

SM-PRO Combined Sensor Module Array

The new module has a boost/vac gauge built in (just hook up tubing to the module box) and also contains multiple other modules. I personally would have been happier with the modular nature of the old boxes, plus not everyone wants all of these gauges, but frankly I won't complain because I'm just happy I don't have to have a second gauge mounted in the car. I found out about the stock issues after I'd bought the wideband and EGT and couldn't get any of the others...

I don't really see where you can get the imfd cables anymore, but anyway the prices I'm seeing were in the $60+ range anyway, so I'm going to build my own cable in order to enable live logging of wideband with accesstuner.

I'm curious if they'll ever add something beyond WBO2 and boost/vac to the android/ios app...

An offering that was never fully fleshed out . . .

IMHO, to justify its' price, the S209 needs to perform at least as well as my moderately powered 05 built beater, and even that might not convince me to buy one cause my next STI isn't likely to be moderately powered.

The app? Agreed. It's interesting bc I think they have one of the best gauge offerings by far, but they also seem to spread themselves thin with very different product offerings. Still, the only other "multigauge" solutions I can find that aren't full on dash computers are just dual function gauges. A few are decent (fluid temp + pressure) but mostly they are pointlessly mismatched like EGT + battery voltage. Plus I still don't want more than one gauge, two at the most.

The app would be pretty sweet paired with an unlocked headunit that can support screen mirroring. Oh well I'm just happy ill be able to add some more modules to my plx gauge. If only I could monitor the various knock and timing parameters without my accessport stuck on the dash...
