Get insight into how your car is performing with the free Garmin Mechanic™ 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.
At the pump, enter your fill-up data and track average mileage, total fuel used, fuel cost, cost per mile and more. Set up service schedules for maintenance on all your vehicles, and get notifications when service is due.
Expand your toolbox by pairing the Garmin Mechanic app with our ecoRoute™ HD module (sold separately) and gain access to real-time performance data, including live gauges showing RPM, throttle position, intake pressure, manifold vacuum, boost, instant economy, battery voltage, real-time estimated power and torque, and more. Evaluate your driving style with the Eco Score gauge.
Create gauge sets and save them as Dashboards, and instantly recall them for different driving modes (e.g. towing, economy, racing).
Measure your vehicle's performance with the Acceleration/Dyno feature. Measure 0-30, 0-60 and 1/4-mile times, torque and horsepower.
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 and provides descriptions for over 6500 error codes and resets your vehicle’s Check Engine light.
Export all your vehicle information (including fill-ups, service schedule, service history, sensor data, diagnostic data, acceleration runs and more) to view on your computer.
- Tablet support -- works with 7" and 10" tablets (all Android versions)
- Move to SD Card option
- Track average mileage and service history on multiple vehicles

Lots of features and a few shortcomings. Some gauges do not track current data on one screen while the same gauge displayed on another screen will be updating in real time. Repeated problems with pairing to my EVO, but seems to pair up fine with my GPS. Can't go back and edit fillups. For instance I made an error entering the odometer on a previous fillup. When I found it a couple days later the app would not Iet me change/edit the entry.

Good stuff. This app has more features vs. using the OBD ecoRoute sensor with my nuvi 1390.

This software would be great if it worked. Unfortunately it always crashes. It is never running long enough to do anything.

I received a phone call and the app stopped updating and did not record any of the trip.

Extremely easy to use. Plugged in ecoroute hd, downloaded app,started car, launched app and hit connect. Seconds later it was connected.

I would have given v1.1 4star if changing the date on fillup had worked. Could also do with a setting so fillup could be changed litre or gallons.

Works great on my Evo. Seems to work as well with the EcoRoute HD as does my 2360 GPS. Sadly it seems to run away with the phone CPU every time.

Would be 5 stars if it would keep running and keeping mileage stats in the background.
