this is just a battery powered clock that doesn't have any other data or use the cars computer, simply for looks and telling time. You just set it like you'd set a wrist watch. Thank you for the info though! Also as far as the gauge pod goes, I would put this housing right in front of the alarm light/sensor thing on the dash. It would be a little far back, but I think it could look good.
