The problem is Lund will only unlock the Lund branded ngauge (I assume you will have to buy their tune). If it is the HPT nguage, you are pretty much out of luck. Also, not many other companies are using the nGuage to upload tunes these days and if it is a Lund one, then no other company other than Lund will be able to unlock it.

the ngauge will work just fine however because the company that makes them went under there wont be any new updates to the software for them and once they die you are kinda sol. i have an ngauge and starting to deal with screen issues in terms of the touch screen. screen works just fine but the sensitivity is lacking like ill push a button and a different button will register.

as for unlocks i believe lund locks their ngauges so that you can only load their tunes thru it. unlocking it (i believe, but could be wrong) allows you to load another company tune to the device. if you were to sell it to someone you would want to unmarry it from your car so it can be married to the buyers car.

mine was doing this from the beginning. I just got used to it and I know where to push now. Quality is not that great. Could be part of the reason they’re gone.

IIRC the actual reason the company folded up was simply that they could not get parts for manufacturing during the pandemic, simple as that.

I will agree its not an incredibly refined feeling device but its a really solid concept, I much prefer the ngauge over a OBDII dongle I have to pair with my phone. I hope another company picks up on the ngauge concept and runs with it.
