Our Friday Feature this week focuses on an important money and gas saving solution, the Garmin ecoRoute HD cable. We share the easy to install solution along with a testimonial from GPS City customer Charles.
The Garmin ecoRoute HD cable helps car owners be their own mechanic by turning a compatible nuvi GPS into a real-time diagnostic computer. After plugging the cable into the car's ODB port, ecoRoute provides accurate fuel consumption reports and conservation data along with regular fuel and mileage reports. Drivers also can calculate the car's engine performance. By constantly monitoring the diagnostic system, drivers have a better understanding of how their vehicle works.
The main purpose of the ecoRoute HD is to make users aware of their carbon footprint. The ecoRoute calculates the most efficient route so drivers don't waste gas. By using less gas, drivers are emitting less fumes and therefore reducing their carbon footprint. Simultaneously, drivers are saving money.
When asked about his Garmin ecoRoute HD cable, Charles, one of our GPS City customers, kept it short and sweet, saying, "The [ecoRoute] is a great tool, the information is accurate and useful. It eliminates the need for bulky OBDII equipment to get all the information. I use it daily and the wide range of information and views makes exciting use."
The ecoRoute HD is compatible with vehicles manufactured after 1996 in the United States or 1998 in Canada that have one of the following ODBII systems: J1850 VPW; ISO 9141-2, J1850 PWM, KWP2000, ISO14230, CAN.
