The MaxiTrip TP100 4-In-One Auto Computer from Autel is an innovative on board vehicle diagnostic device that combines real-time engine monitoring, failure prevention and trip tracking in a single, semi-permanent dashboard mountable device. Perfect for everyone from auto enthusiasts and do-it-yourselfers to parents of young drivers, business owners and anyone looking to maximize fuel efficiency, the unit taps into your vehicle's onboard computer via a standard 16-pin OBD-II data link connector (DLC). This is usually under the driver's side dashboard, but the TP100 can be placed unobtrusively wherever it's most convenient, safe and visible. The data points it measures break down into four distinct use categories: trip computer, digital gauges, scan tool and vehicle "black box".
Used as a trip computer, the MaxiTrip TP100 functions as a compact calculation device designed to monitor information pertaining to your vehicle's performance in real time. In this mode, it will display such useful information as data point variants related to maximum speed, driving distance, distance to empty, average speed, fuel used, time to empty, driving time, trip fuel economy and fuel to empty. Closely related to this function is the TP100's use as a digital gauge device. Useful as a supplement to your car's existing dashboard gauges, these gauges can be configured to measure and monitor up to four different sets of information simultaneously, providing real-time engine performance analysis, allowing you to adjust driving behavior immediately and save gas. Just a few of the gauges that can be displayed are: vehicle speed, engine load, RPM, ignition timing, intake air temperature, battery voltage, and many more. Once your trip is over, the TP100 serves a black box recorder for your vehicle, providing a high level view of activity. Users will be able to save up to 300 hours of driving data for later analysis including data points like time and date for each trip, maximum speed during trip, distance traveled, time overspeed, and more.
Finally, the TP100 also functions as a scan tool, useful for troubleshooting check engine light/Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) instances through the ability to view Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) on OBD-II/EOBD compliant vehicles. OBD-II is the second generation of onboard diagnostics standard for cars and trucks and has been a mandatory requirement for all vehicles sold in the US since 1996, both domestic and imports. EOBD is its European counterpart, required on gasoline models since 2000 and diesel models since 2003. This extensive vehicle coverage means that the vast majority of cars on the road today can utilize the TP100 for initial diagnosis of issues as they happen. Along with its DTC functionality TP100 also includes many other functions including: the ability to view freeze frame MIL-related data recorded by vehicle computers, the retrieval of vehicle information (VIN, CIN and CVN), and the ability to read and clear trouble codes and MIL indicators.
This innovative 4-in-one automotive computer from Autel is exactly what is needed for real-time engine monitoring, failure prevention and trip tracking. The compact and intelligent gadget includes four most useful modes namely, trip computer, digital gauges, scan tool and vehicle black box. It is a compact automotive computer designed to monitor information about the vehicle in real time as well as displays useful information such as average trip MPG, tank MPG, average speed per trip, average speed per tank of gas, miles to empty, miles driven on tank and more. This maxitrip can be configured to measure and monitor up to four different sets of information simultaneously, providing real-time engine performance analysis, allowing one to adjust driving behavior as well as save gas. It works as a scan tool that is able to help one troubleshoot problems of all OBD2/EOBD compliant vehicles and works as a vehicle black box to store every trip one makes.
