Garmin GPS ecoRoute Saves Fuel and Cuts Emissions

By June 19, 2009

Garmin ecoRoute GPSGarmin introduced a new feature called "ecoRoute" earlier this year that received little more than passing mention in the tech press. I've been using ecoRoute on a new Garmincar GPS, and it's impressive. You can selecta "less fuel" route option, get real-time feedback on your driving efficiency, check route costs (you input fuel price in setup), and check an ongoing fuel report. The fuel report, for example, includes distance, time traveled, cost of fuel used, average fuel economy (nice feature), fuel used, and carbon footprint (pounds of carbon emitted). Garmin users may download ecoRoute for free (check model compatibility), and it comes bundled with some newer models. Watch for a full review here. Image Garmin
