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).

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.
