Real-time Fuel Economy Via Graphic Feedback
ScanGaugeE is a unique dashboard mounted tool that provides you with real-time information about your vehicle's immediate fuel economy, relevant engine processes and a wide range of other important data points which it gathers from your vehicle's onboard computer system and relates to you by way of an intuitive graphic display. Problems surrounding the rising cost of automotive fuels and the impact that driving has on the environment are here to stay. But according to a report issued by the US government, adjusting your driving habits can increase fuel-economy by up to 33%. In addition, we all have a carbon footprint - the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that each of us is personally responsible for releasing into the environment by our actions. The good news is that drivers can easily adjust their driving style to improve fuel economy in the short and long-term, lower their CO2 emissions and even monitor and troubleshoot diagnostic information that your vehicle automatically generates via its network of onboard computers with the instant feedback provided by ScanGaugeE.
Learn to use up to 33% less fuel by monitoring your driving in real-time.
Monitor real-time fuel costs and how they are altered by your driving actions.
Monitor your current CO2 emissions, for the trip or for the tank.
Connects in seconds and is powered by your vehicle's OBD-II port. Three Tools in One
The ScanGaugeE draws diagnostic information from your vehicle's OBD-II port and funnels this into useful automotive data points. These data points are organized into three areas of functionality designed to maximize useful real-time information, no matter the user. These groupings are: trip computer, digital gauges and scan tool.
The trip computer functionality built into the ScanGaugeE automatically tracks five sets of trip data: current trip, today's trip, previous day's trip, current tank trip and tank to empty. Each of these features 11 individually stored parameters. These data parameter points include:
Maximum coolant temperature
Current tank of fuel information
Distance to empty
Time to empty
Fuel to empty
The digital gauge functionality of the ScanGaugeE allows for up to five gauge sets: three built-in and two custom. These include: fuel efficiency screen, CO2 screen, fuel cost screen, and your two customizable screens. Examples of customizable gauge screens include:
Fuel economy (MPG or liters/100Km)
Fuel rate (GPH or LPH)
Ignition Timing (before and after TDC)
Manifold pressure (not available on some vehicles)
Tachometer (RPM) - accurate to within 1 RPM
Digital speedometer (MPH or KPH adjustable for tire size or gearing changes)
Battery voltage (reads to 0.1-volts)
Intake air temperature
CO2 (displays current and trip CO2 production)
Modern vehicles are constantly monitoring themselves via their internal computer systems, with the result being the output of diagnostic codes, but these codes are usually not readable without a code reader. The ScanGaugeE allows you to troubleshoot your own vehicle, read these error codes -- the conditions present when the error occurred -- and the turn off the "Check Engine" light. Taken together, these abilities help avoid costly trips to the mechanic we could all do without.
Reads and clears trouble codes
Shows conditions when trouble was detected
Turns off "Check Engine" lamp
Shows when emissions tests have been completed and vehicle is ready to pass OBD-II emissions testing
What is OBD-II?
Since 1996 standardized Onboard Diagnostic systems -- currently OBD-II -- have been mandated for virtually all cars and light trucks manufactured for the US market. These provide automotive technicians and DIYers with insight into the increasingly complex inner workings of modern passenger vehicles. Traditionally professional grade diagnostic results required large and/or expensive scanning tools to translate diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and other data generated by the internal computer networks of your vehicle when the check engine/malfunction indicator light (MIL) on the dashboard goes off, but the Scan Tool functionality of the the ScanGaugeE provides an affordable option that allows access to much of this information.
Easy Installation with No Tools Required
ScanGaugeE installs in just minutes without tools and does not require batteries or an external power source. Simply plug the CAT-5 style end of the included cable into the back of the unit, and plug the opposite end, which terminates in an OBD-II connector, into your vehicle's OBD-II port. Virtually every vehicle manufactured since 1996 has an OBD-II port, usually located under the dashboard on the driver's side. This port is standardized ensuring that the ScanGaugeE cable connector will fit. All power used is drawn from this connection and it serves as an interface to your vehicle's onboard diagnostic computer network. The detachable six (6) foot cord along with the Velcro attachment system for the display also allows ScanGaugeE to be mounted just about anywhere on the dash or console while staying connected to your vehicle.
Three in One Functionality - ScanGaugeE provides a trip computer, a digital gauge and OBD-II scan tool functionality in one convenient device
User Friendly Menu Driven Operation - Simple 5 button operation allows you to quickly and easily access the powerful features of the ScanGauge
No Batteries Required - A single connection to the OBD-II diagnostic connector under the dashboard provides all the power needed
English, Standard or Metric Units - The gauges and trip computer information can be shown in either English or metric units of measure, including miles, kilometers, liters, Fahrenheit , Celsius, and kPA
Automatic Protocol Determination - The ScanGaugeE automatically determines the type of protocol your vehicle's onboard computer system uses and connects to it
6-Foot Cord and Velcro Attachment - The Control/Display unit can be mounted up to 6 feet from the under-dash OBD-II diagnostic connector, while the included Velcro attachment system allows it can be quickly detached and used to troubleshoot other vehicles
Convenient Non-Volatile Memory - Stored information such as, user settings, recent trip data and vehicle settings, are automatically saved and will not be lost when the unit is disconnected or powered down
Backlight For Night Driving - Choose from 7 standard backlight colors and 63 total color variations, each of which is adjustable in intensity
Automatic Power Control - The system automatically powers-up when connected and the engine is started, and utilizes an automatic delayed power-down when the engine is shut off
