Cool Upgrade

Brian, Crutchfield
4 June 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. I have tried to improve my MPG fuel economy based on the instant information presented to me via the HD receiver (i.e. I notice my chronic "lead foot/ hard breaking more than ever) and think I saving a little money...too soon to create a real pattern.
  • Pros: Easy installation, cool instant vehicle information.
  • Cons: None

Great product!

Airforcejohn, Crutchfield

  • 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). Turn on your car, follow the directions provided to link up with your Garmin unit.
  • 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 for "Hi-temp/Hi-strength."

Reset Check Engine Light

Tom, Crutchfield
30 March 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. The check-engine light has been illuminated on my 2006 Chrysler Pacifica for about 2-weeks now, but engine performance has been normal. I got the ecoRoute to pair with my GPS with relative ease. The OBD-II code displayed by the device was P0456 (Evap System Small Leak).
  • 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!

Garmin Mechanic with ecoRoute

Eagle, Crutchfield
1 December 2011
  • 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. Fast shipping, and a heck of a lot lower price than straight from Garmin.
  • Pros: see review
  • Cons: None

Engine monitoring

John Fletcher, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: Gives access to far more readings from the engine than those on the dashboard, including engine temp. Why miss off the temp gauge on a car beats me! Sat nav still gives directions whilst displaying the gauges.

Very useful.

Cornz "Cornz", Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: Used with my garmin to great effect, provides diagnostic code reading and real time sensor data to your garmin (ONLY) sat nav. The device uses a proprietary protocol so will not work with any other sat nav other than a compatible garmin. But, it does what it does and does it well.

Excellent

Chilly, Amazon
28 June 2012
  • Summary: Only recently moved to Garmin from Tomtom and must admit, so far I have found them to be very good, i you write an email you get a reply, not a link to a site where, eventually, you manage to find your question and sort of an answer, if you're lucky! I phoned Garmin before buying this item and got straight through to a real person and one I could understand, he answered my question straight away with no fuss at all!
