Plug the ecoRoute HD dongle into your vehicle’s OBDII port to monitor your engine computer and analyse your driving style. The sat nav gives you a Driving Score based on acceleration, braking and constancy of speed to help you drive in the most economic way for your vehicle. With a bit of intuition your driving skill will improve as well as a reduction in fuel cost, wear and tear on your engine, etc. More on the unit here.
The ecoRoute HD also tracks your footprint, which helps raise awareness and gives you numbers to work on for reduction of footprint in other places in your life to help counter balance the car’s footprint.
