Installed new gauges for the Tdi, what do I need to get in order to install a VDO vision fuel gauge too?

Just get the gauge. It is more of a real time gauge so you may notice fuel levels vary when going around corners, but for me it was a straight swap. I am petrol V8. Not sure if it is different for diesels.

Installed a TrackmateGPS. Affordable upfront price, reasonable service fees, and pretty accurate. Won't keep it from running away with someone who thinks they want my truck more than me, but at least I'll stack the cards in my favor if it leaves a geofence between certain times of day or night.

After logging into the online map interface, I can set a quarter-mile radius around my house to be activated between midnight and 5am. If the truck leaves that circle between those times, I get a text and an email. Multiple geofences with custom areas, times, and days-of-week can be set.

Pair that with a GSM switch and you could set up a remote kill switch, siren or something.

That's actually a feature on the unit. It can be wired to a fuel pump or battery lead that can be remotely disabled/disconnected via an included relay.

The unit comes with two antennae...a GSM and a GPS.

Can you configure it to automatically kill the fuel pump once it leaves the containment area? That would probably be most effective, Thief thinks he is good, Truck dies, and he's not likely to wait around trying to figure out why, giving you a chance to recover it..

Agreed, that'd be ideal. Currently, it doesn't have that capability. You have to login and click a button to remotely close any circuits.

I am Scheel-Mann USA's first customer. My friend Toby Pond here in Portland Oregon will be the US distributer. We will be at The NW Overland Rally in Washington promoting seats.

He is bringing in a container with an assortment of different seats for different vehicles. We will be displaying seats for the Defender, Range Rover and G Wagon.

The quality is incredible and they are very comfortable. For defenders the seat bottom lifts up. The defender seat brackets are very well designed and made.

They are the nicest thing in or in my rig.

Anthony
