Summary: Excellent addition to my Garmin GPS. Actually reads fault codes off the OBD connection and provides information on the battery, water temp, engine power, etc. Very helpful for me as my 10 inch Garmin GPS is mounted over my speedometer and instrument cluster.
Summary: I bought this product so I could use it to see if my car has any issue. The product was easy to install, but it was not easy to find a spot for it to be taped or velcro, zip tied to.
Pros: The product showed what I need to know and was able to show me gauges info from my vehicle.
Cons: - Pairing the device was not easy and I was not able to use with the Garmin garage with it, since I have feeling it only allow one paired device at a time. - There was not enough gauges to display - One time device pairing
Summary: This is one great product for those who want to keep a check on ALL engine performance items. I mean all , from eng temp , rpms , air intake temp, timing advance, and a bunch more. Highly recommended, and the service from Crutchfield was awesome.
Summary: The real-time info is very useful. However, the start-up procedure is very time-consuming, finicky and annoying. It will not properly connect unless I turn-on the Garmin first, then initiate the app, then wait at least 30 seconds before starting my car; then, most of the the time it will do it's job...
Pros: accurate real-time mpg feedback, engine gauges
Cons: cumbersome start-up and initiation of connection, inaccurate graphing, multiple steps to switch to other modes (like View Map)
Summary: Nice product with the Android app. Biggest problem is you can not use it when your phone is connected to your car for music and/or phone calls. It will constantly lose connection with the device.
Pros: Great information about your car.
Cons: Can't connect with a phone that is also connected with your car.
Summary: The Garmin Mechanic with ecoRouteT HD was exactly was I looking for. I am using the Garmin Mechanic with ecoRouteT HD with the Garmin RV 760LMT. What a combination. Really does make a difference in how I drive the Sprinter 3500 based Fleetwood RV.
Pros: Fairly priced, easy to install, lots of information!
Summary: First, this product is "connected" via the wireless Bluetooth availability on the top-of-the line Garmin GPS systems or the Kenwood Navigation systems (their GPS is made by Garmin). Simple plug your ecoRouteT HD unit into your vehicle's standardized onboard diagnostics port (OBD II).
Pros: Very easy to connect -- plug in, stick on anywhere under the dash. If needed, long plastic ties are included.
Cons: The supplied double-sided adhesive tape to attach the ecoRoute HD to the surface of the front of your dash (near your knees) is a weak adhesive. If it does not adhere to your plastic dash, replace the original tape with 3M VHB "Supermount Tape" found at hardware stores and Radio Shack. It's made ...
