Or just download a GPS application on the phone your looking at to get the pressure? Looks like an archaic way to get readily available information.

I have a altimeter app on my phone. to use it when I am driving I have to:
1. unlock my phone,
2. find the app and open it,
3. wait for the app to load,
4. look at the altitude
5. refresh it every time to get the next altitude
* data service cuts in and out in the mountains so some times you will get stuck on step 3.
Or do all that every time before I start driving and then let the app use my GSP, and data and have my screen on all the time with the app open all the time.
with the gauge all I need to do is
Optional, set Barometric pressure (not setting the pressure will still let me know how far up or down I have gone from the last time I looked at the gauge.)
1. glance left to see altitude at any given time
No batteries, no screen, no data, no app to crash, no losing my phone for what every else I was going to use it for (music, gps map) also the gps app will not give you your altitude when not on the ground (like when on a tall bridge or over pass)
Smart phones are great at doing lots of things but they tend to be bad at any one thing, a flip phone with buttons works better for making calls for example.
I can get the temp and compass heading from my phone too but I still really like having them on my dash board all the time so I can just glance down and see that at any given time. also the compass in the car work better then the one on my phone and the temp is where I am at the time, not where the weather station on my phone is.
