Re: Digital vs. Analog engine gauges

Installed the Microlog battery monitor and Shunt. Piece of cake! I initially balked at the $90 price for the shunt, but it is a substantial piece of hardware. Looks like something a power company would use!
Microlog supplies everything needed except the ground wire to connect the shunt to the batteries. Ordered that from Genuinedealz.com, another great resource.
The Microlog Gives me:
Voltage of both batteries and high/low voltage alarm.
Charging (from all sources) and discharging rate in Amps.
The monitor can also be turned off (something I didn't pick up in the sales info).
