Garmin's Eco Friendly Navigation Technology

Share |

Gr-ecoroute150 We are always on the lookout for new ways to save both fuel and money. Well to make things a little easier GPS manufacturer Garmin has announced a little software called ecoRoute.

With ecoRoute you can become more fuel efficient by adopting smarter driving habits and finding alternative routes. The software is compatible with Garmin Nuvi devices, and will not only create itineraries based on the most fuel-efficient course; they will also be the fastest and shortest distances. Users select vehicle type and enter the fuel economy, and then Nuvi will determine if more fuel efficient routes exist based upon road speed data and vehicle acceleration data for a given route.

Garmin also offers features that include a Fuel Report and a Mileage Report that tracks and monitor your mileage and fuel usage on a per-trip basis. Mileage Report makes it easy for business travelers to keep track of distance traveled for company reimbursements.

Just another example of how modern technology is making our lives easy and eco friendly.
