Garmin ecoRoute HD - real-time monitor/diagnostic of vehicle

Postby chaicka » Fri Jan 08, 2010 11:36 am

By accessing onboard diagnostics and performance data through ecoRoute HD, drivers can use a compatible Garmin nüvi to wirelessly monitor real-time vehicle diagnostics for most vehicles while accurately calculating ecoRoute data and driver challenge scores (speed, acceleration, braking, etc.). By simply plugging the ecoRoute HD module into the vehicle’s standardized onboard diagnostics port (OBD II), safely mounting the transmitter clear of vehicle controls and pedals, and completing the easy one-time pairing with nüvi, drivers can start receiving the vital data from their vehicle and run diagnostic checks through nüvi’s intuitive interface before a trip to the auto shop is necessary. Drivers also get more accurate ecoRoute data, making fuel conservation easier than ever, and they can monitor their engine data (including temperature, RPM, emissions) and diagnostics through the Trip Computer screen and customizable Gauges screen. Drivers can then view Diagnostic Trouble Codes – with on-screen descriptions of some error codes – and reset the “check engine” light. ecoRoute HD will be compatible with many current and future nüvi models, including 1260, 1370, 1390, 1490 and 1690.

Real-time data monitored by ecoRoute HD, which has an expected availability date of March 2010 for a suggested retail price of $149.99, includes vital diagnostics such as:

* Intake air temperature information
* Coolant temperature data
* Throttle position and engine load
* Intake manifold pressure
* Battery and charging system information
* Mass airflow rate
* Timing advance
* Emissions

Hope that answer your question.

Personally I think that price is quite reasonable because a dedicated OBDII device such as Scangauge will cost you more, and it takes up another space on the dash. The garmin ecoRoute HID is bluetooth, and that solve your cable routing problem.

I'm looking forward owing one but that means I have to buy another GPS with bluetooth capability. :frus:

Waa I did not realise that the 1390T given to me as a gift is that advance. I am still struggling with the Junction View.
