All in one volt meter, usb, 12v plug.

Ran across this this afternoon. Thoughts? Does anyone have any experience with this product? I think this would be convenient. Any negatives?

That looks pretty nice actually. I would jump on it if i hadn't already spent my monthly allotment of things i don't really need. It looks neat and tidy.

Sort of what I thought, seemed neat and tidy. Would mount nicely over the instrument cluster or even fabricate something to mount where the auxiliary shelf mounts.

I don't see why not.

I had an idea to make a "plug" which would cover a 12V outlet. The face of the plug would be a voltmeter. Couldn't use it while the outlet was occupied, but if not occupied, or for diagnosis...

LOL.

Huh, didn't know that. I wonder if I've ever had an original idea.

I thought I'd give it a try. It came in the mail today. I can't figure out a good place for it. If you put it in the center you can't get to the key. Anywhere else it sits at an angle. Sounds like a good idea but I'll probably send it back. If anyone has installed it on a DL 650 I'd be interested in seeing where..

I guess this would work but I think it takes up too much space
