Garmin® ecoRoute™ HD — a real-time onboard diagnostics computer

Garmin ecoRoute HD will be on show at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2011 to demonstrate its credentials as an OBDII diagnostics computer that can help dramatically reduce fleet fuel costs, improve driver retention and lower overall vehicle costs. Come and see it in action at the Garmin Stand 4K112.

The Garmin ecoRoute HD sensor is an easy-to-install device that is compatible with a wide range of Garmin sat navs, including those with advanced fleet management interface capability. 

By accessing onboard diagnostics and performance data through ecoRoute HD, a real-time driver challenge score (based on speed, rapid acceleration and harsh braking) can be wirelessly displayed on a compatible Garmin nüvi® sat nav.  The use of real-time feedback allows a driver to understand what course of action lead to a change in their driver challenge score, and to make a link between this and their fuel consumption. 

Drivers also get more accurate ecoRoute data for each journey, 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.

In addition, fleet managers can receive vital data from their fleet and run diagnostic checks through the sat nav’s intuitive interface. The View Diagnostic Trouble Codes option gives on-screen descriptions of some error codes.

Real-time data monitored by ecoRoute HD, 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, CO2

ecoRoute HD  has a recommended retail price of £99.99
