Driving And Engine Performance Monitor

Thursday, June 10, 2010

When it comes to informational data, most automobiles tend to be pretty stingy on details. You really get just the basics - speed, fuel, odometer, and engine temperature. That's not a lot of info especially when you're a tech-hungry geek - we want to see more and fortunately the Car Chip Pro delivers.
No tools or automotive expertise required! Just plug Car Chip Pro into the OBDII port (easily found under the dashboard or steering wheel) and it reads and stores data from your car's on-board computers, continuously logging driving and engine performance. On-board diagnostics (OBD) data was once available only to professional mechanics. With Car Chip Pro, this same data is now in your hands.
Easy Plug-and-Go Installation
  1. Locate your car's OBDII connector. It's found under the dash of cars, model-year 1996 or later, no more than three feet from the driver's seat.
  2. Plug the data logger in. A gentle push is all it takes.
  3. Start driving. The data logger will start collecting data as soon as you start driving.
  4. Connect the Car Chip to your computer via USB and download the data.
  • Easy installation: plug in under the dash, drive your vehicle, then download the data to your PC
  • Up to 300 hours of trip details (newest data records over oldest)
