PLX DM-200 IMFD Gauges

Buy Now Only $379

 

Here are some pictures of the DM-200 gauges and the custom install into the rearview mirror.  More info for the DM-200s will come soon.  The price is $379 for the DM-200 OBDII gauge.

I’ve just received the PLX DM-200 OBDII IMFD gauge. WOW!! This thing is awesome! The high definition display looks excellent and the graphics and animations are great. It can display multiple OBDII parameters on the same screen. As far as I can tell the display for the OBDII parameters cannot be changed to display different parameters on different screens. It would be nice to be able to change the order of the OBD parameters, but its not really a big deal because you can assign 4 OBDII parameters to be viewed on the regular gauge screens for options like peak and hold, line graphing, analog display, digital display, 4 parameter mode, and for linking to other PLX display modules like the DM-100. The DM-200s can view all of the plx modules to accept a variety of sensors such as wideband AFR, EGT, IAT, oil pressure, fluid temps (intercooler, coolant, oil, etc), and boost. Depending on which modules you have you can set custom warnings such as if boost >2psi and AF >12.0 then flash the red warning screen. You can also set warnings based on OBDII data like if fuel pressure <35psi and TP> 80% = flash warning screen. Its possible to assign up to 4 parameters for your custom warning options. The cost for the OBDII gauge is $379 and it’s a 60mm gauge (2 3/8”) so it’s a little bigger than the standard 50mm (2 1/16”) gauges.

DM-200 install into the Rearview Mirror
I was out of gauge mounting space so I decided to see if I could fit the guts of the DM-200 into my rear view mirror. The mirror came off by gently pulling down on the top of it and wiggling it off. (some mirrors may have set screws). I cut the hole in the back with a hot knife, then proceeded to carefully scrape away all of the backing on the mirror with a razor blade that I cut in half. It was a tedious and finger cramping job that took about 1hr. I used a cardboard template and the gauge cover to decide where the backing needed to be removed. The DM-200 needed to be slightly modified by trimming some of the circuit board with some dykes (on the bottom of the gauge). I hot glued the gauge into place and hot glued the back of the mirror on for temporary use. I plan on adding some bondo, sanding, and painting so it looks nearly stock from the back. The entire job took about 1.5hrs.

 

Only temp.

Here are a couple videos.  The camera does not like to focus on the mirror so please excuse it when it "bugs out".
