Someone is already doing this. I wonder if Curt ripped off the idea or bought them out...

As someone who deals with instrumentation a lot... This seems horribly, horribly inaccurate. It does not factor in things like wind, or road slope (although I am sure the directions tell you to use a flat road on a calm day). Using the vehicle pitch angle change with load could only be accurate to a couple hundred pounds, and that if they used a mondo-expensive angle sensor.

I'd be thoroughly surprised if they can achieve an accuracy of +- 10%. For comparison sake, my truck scale at work is +-0.5% and I get yelled at a lot if my conveyor scales are off more than 1%.

A nifty idea in theory, but it's gonna go all pear-shaped on the implementation. I can hear the lawyers drooling already for the first guy to wreck his rig when the device says his weights are ok and they weren't.

Flipped icons and changed colors.

Out of curiosity, I emailed HaulGauge. Hopefully I get an answer.

HaulGauge recently sold to Curt Group, so we are working with them ("joining forces", as you said).

I respectfully disagree. The headlights are clearly different on the trucks between the two.

I never was good at the “spot the differences” game!
