volt gauge question

I picked up a cyberdyne digital volt gauge. the problem I am having is the instructions say hook it to a switched power source so I hooked it to the brown wire at the cig lighter or acc plug. and ground to a ground I ran straight from the battery. it reads 12.4 when a multimeter says 14.7 at the battery. when I moved the power from the plug to the battery it reads 14.4. I moved the power back to the plug and used the mulitmeter to checked the wire behind the gauge and it reads 14.7 while the gauge still reads 12.4. I called tech support and they were useless. they said there might be some interference through the ign line causing the problem but I dont understand how? if the line is reading 14.7 what could cause interference to make the gauge read 12.4 on the ign circuit? anyone got any clues?

at first i was thinking voltage drop if the wire is small but if meter reads same at both places i dunno, im guessing either gauge or meter is reading incorrect and 14.7 seems like a pretty high reading for a batt but i could be wrong, i need to add a volt meter on my rex someday.

14.7 reading from the battery was with the maching running to it was reading the stator. I got an analog gauge and it reads fine so i am returning the digital ones.
