The red one looks like it would be at home in a Bonneville interior. But for what use I'm not sure.

I like that idea. How would you power it if it'* designed to run on AC though? I know it can be done, just curious how.

Aw. I checked the specs.But it says 5 volts. So how would that work? Not trying to be a pain, trying to learn something.

you put a voltage regulator on it or a Resistor.

That makes sense.
Might have to try this out when I get back on the road.

This is made for a computer, right? I mean, it has a max temp of 158 F so you have to be careful as to what you want to measure. Also, the cables are not made to be in an engine bay, so you'll have to be wary of how you wrap them or what route you take. And for sure it will need an extension to reach your cab.

It does match the Pontiac interiors, though.
