Default Scan Guage...

Is this the name or brand name of the product - I can only find one product
when looking for "scan gauge":

http://www.scangauge.com/

Are there any competing products, and am I correct in assuming the OBD port
for my 2002 Accord is under the driver's side dash?

The OBD II port is under the dash on the driver's side. Should be handy
the steering column.

I believe it's the brand name,and the port should be under the driver's
side dash.

you could try Googling for "OBD port gauges" for other similar products.

In Google, try
"OBD-II code reader"
"OBD-II scan tool"
"DTC scan tool"
just for a start.

One I've heard very good things about (but have not tried myself) is
http://www.autoenginuity.com/

Only about five hundred others. Any geek with a soldering iron
and an account at an electronics parts place can make one.

Your local auto parts places all have some sort of OBD-II code reader
in stock.

See this link:

Enter your vehicle, and voila.

That looks like a great tool, but a bit overboard (and pricey) for
most folks. To get the generic kit and the Honda add-on, it's around
$500.

The ScanGuageII is probably better suited for most folks. And a lot
cheaper... ;-)

While they both read the OBDII information, their presentation and
capabilities are different.

There's reason to have both, actually, but depending on what you want,
one of them is entirely unsuited.

You're probably right on the first count, and certainly right on the
second.

These things are just plug and go for, say, a 2007 Accord?

Other than choosing what items you want on the display, yes. That goes for
any car manufactured for sale in the U.S. since 1996.
