Default Gauges in cold weather

What are you using for hour, volts, and temp gauges? Any problems with displays not working in sub-freezing temps?

I have a Trail Tech Voyager that came with my bike and even down to the -20 F that it has seen, never a single problem.

I had put a Trail Tech temp guage on my BIL's Honda 450, same thing, down to -20F and not a problem.

..... If it is powered by the bike.... With a battery... When it runs on it's in battery you will have issues....

I was looking at the Trail Tech Striker for the temp, volt, hour meter function. I contacted Trail Tech support concerning the 32-140 degrees operating temperature range. They told me that below 32 degrees, the display will not function correctly. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this problem on a snowbike.

I have I have the striker on mine and never had any issues with it operating below 32 degrees... Now don't ask me how cold it got because I don't know but it was below 32... I would absolutely recommend it

I have the voyager and I keep breaking it. After 2 seasons of -10 to plus 40 F riding half the LCD's don't work. Now granted i also don't have a garage so bikes stay covered but cold all winter. Probably not the best on electronics

Yes I have experienced problems. I have 2 TTO temp gauges, one on each bike. One works perfectly and the other drops LCD bars on the display when it gets cold. The flakey one always starts out fine but quickly stops working.
