Track Performance and Trips

Get insight into how your car is performing with the free Garmin Mechanic (TM) app. Use the Skidpad to measure lateral acceleration, and track your speed and distance using GPS.

Taking a trip? Garmin Mechanic tracks your trips and calculates total distance, average speed, and estimated mileage to help increase fuel savings. Got more than one vehicle? You can track and collect data on multiple vehicles.

Make Garmin Mechanic a Full Diagnostics Tool

Expand your toolbox by pairing the Garmin Mechanic app with the ecoRoute (TM) HD module (sold separately), and gain access to real-time performance data, including live gauges showing RPM, throttle position, intake pressure, and more.

With the ecoRoute HD module, Garmin Mechanic also calculates your instant and average fuel economy, and checks your vehicle's self-test status for emissions certification. The vehicle diagnostics feature reads error codes and resets your vehicle's Check Engine light, and your vehicle data is logged and easily exported and viewed on your computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of breed December 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
Garmin Mechanic requires the Garmin "ecoroute" OBDII hardware, which is proprietary (not ELM 327 compatible), and a bit pricey, but well made and works in every car I've tried. Garmin Mechanic software is free and well done, but is only available for Android (no iOS). I have an 8" tablet mounted in my supercharged Mustang GT as a realtime tuning and auxiliary guage cluster (includes diagnostic decoder and "Check Engine Light" solution), plus has performance metrics so I don't need my G-Tech anymore.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent mechanical monitor. December 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
Since my Jeep doesn't have full guages, this accessory gives me more info on what's going on under the hood. It's too bad it doesn't show oil pressure!

I can't tell you how the app works because it crashes every time I try to open it. Went with Torque and it works fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Im not sure if I am using it right. January 28, 2015
Verified Purchase
The app has little to no use and there is no way it deserves more than 3 stars. I think that im not using it right because it is not really user freindly, it is so confusing and it has no intro so the first time use it you will be so confused

This gives information on your vehicles performance and mileage. Perhaps newer vehicles have such tracking already, but for an older vehicle (2007) it is quite beneficial.
