I also have a Datel installed.

It consistently reads 0.5 volts lower than actual. I have verified this with 2 different hand-held voltmeters.

So, it is precise, just not accurate. Who cares? I can easily add 0.5 volts mentally.

I thought you said DATE!

I was looking for a girl's picture.
I'm sure Mrs. Ridgerunner would have a keen interest in that photo, too.

Where are you getting your power from? Voltage will drop with wire length and size. I'd guess that if you connected a decent size wire set directly to your battery, that you'd get a correct reading.

If not, it should be returned so that you can get an accurate one...

U are right about that, if she could catch me I guess U would find my nads somewhere around the Highest Point on BRP where she kicked me in the groin :(:(:p/

If I can remeber I will get U one. But I just mounted it to the underside of my Pat Walsh Radar shelf. Used super 3M tape and then just made a lil bracket out of some aluminum we had laying around at work.

Voltmeter

What model is the meter and where do you buy it from?
