Same here I would like to know if it works well, specially if it has better visibility than the stock one.

Does the ECU store the odometer or will the unit reset to zero??

The ECU does not store the miles.  According to the youtube videos for this meter it has the capability to have the miles programmed by using a combo of the Select and Reset buttons. 

I'm just curios how this plug and play is going to work.  It has a tach, gear indicator, and a fuel gauge.  Does anyone know how that can be done with the current "plug" without any additional wires?  Does the data already transmit to the meter we currently have?

Some of us don't need the ABS, cruise control and anti-theft indicators but I assume they stay blacked out without those features.

They don't show any extra parts like their other units but that doesn't mean it won't come with more. For the tach, wrapping a wire around a spark plug lead would ok but I wouldn't want to tap into other wires using the crappy connectors they show for other kits.

watching the videos again, it gives you the option to turn off and on the abs light.  So that's cool.  It has back light color and brightness options.  So many questions remain though.  Like I said, I'll be ordering mine Wed or Thur next week.  I'll set up the camera and do an unboxing video.  Then I'll do an install video and show what it looks like installed. 

Also I've been asked by a few members to do a walk around video of my Bolt.  I plan on doing that within the weeks to come.

Outstanding.  Looking forward to it.
