By accessing onboard diagnostics and performance data, drivers can use a compatible Garmin nüvi to wirelessly monitor real-time car diagnostics for most cars while accurately calculating ecoRoute data and driver challenge scores (speed, acceleration, braking, etc.).

By plugging the ecoRoute HD module into the car’s standardised onboard diagnostics port (OBD II), safely mounting the transmitter clear of controls and pedals, and completing the one-time pairing with nüvi, drivers can start receiving vital data from their car and view diagnostic information through nüvi’s interface before a trip to the mechanic is necessary.
Drivers will also receive accurate ecoRoute data, making fuel conservation easier than ever. They can also monitor their engine data (including temperature, RPM, emissions) and diagnostics through the Trip Computer screen and customisable gauges screen. Drivers can then view Diagnostic Trouble Codes – with on-screen descriptions of some error codes – and reset the “check engine” light. ecoRouteHD can display up to 4,000 different trouble 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
