EcoRoute Garmin HD

Carlos Silva, Amazon
8 December 2014
  • Summary: More than what I was expecting. The setup took me 2 minutes (at least my car, a FORD model) had the plug well located and easy accessed. Wonderful add-on to my car-gps-fuel economy setup.

Cool Upgrade

Brian, Crutchfield
17 December 2012
  • Summary: The ecoroute HD was instantly recognized by my garmin (2595lmt) via bluetooth and have had no issues since installation. The guages are a very cool, neat feature for the gearhead/car lover.
  • Pros: Easy installation, cool instant vehicle information.
  • Cons: None

Fussy but useful

Dan, Crutchfield
4 June 2012
  • 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)

Great product!

Airforcejohn, Crutchfield
4 June 2012
  • 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 ...

Reset Check Engine Light

Tom, Crutchfield
21 April 2012
  • Summary: It is great to know that the ecoRoute HD diagnostic tool can reset your check engine light. But, it's another thing to know how! I'm using my ecoRoute HD with my Garmin Nuvi 3790LMT GPS.
  • Pros: Does what it says it will do. Provides good information about your vehicle, and resets the check-engine light.
  • Cons: Owner's manual is very weak and could be more helpful!

Some what satisfied

Anonymous, Crutchfield
1 December 2011
  • 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

Useful but not vital.

greeelis "Greelis", Amazon
23 November 2014
  • Summary: Typical Garmin: gimme gimme gimme. My Nuvi 1690 (compatible SatNav needing regular pricey updates) cost nearly 400 quid and this is another 70+ on top, hence 4 stars. However, if you want to preempt engine problems, this is a very useful tool.
