What is CarChip Pro?
CarChip Pro is an all-in-one engine performance and driving monitor. About the size of a key fob, it’s a great way to keep track of your vehicle, and your or others’ driving.
With the basic CarChip Pro, the data logger will store up to 300 hours of trip details before you’ll need to download. If you drive, on average, two hours a day, that’s over a month’s worth of driving data! (When full, CarChip Pro “rolls over” and begins to overwrite the oldest data with the newest.)
Why CarChip Pro?
You’ll get complete trip details including:
- Time and date for each trip
- Distance traveled
- Speed (recorded every 5 seconds)
- Hard brakings and quick accelerations
With CarChip Pro, you can test your vehicle’s emission status (or see if the used car will pass the smog test before you buy it!), sort business and personal miles, and calculate gas mileage.
You can view all of this graphically on your computer screen, giving you a moment-by-moment picture of how you—or perhaps your employees or the teenagers in your household—are driving.
If the vehicle’s check engine light (also known as a malfunction indicator light or MIL) comes on, you’ll be able to:
- Read the diagnostic trouble code (or DTC).
- Get the “freeze-frame” sensor readings telling you the status of various engine parameters at the time.
- Reset the light.
With CarChip Pro you’ll also be able to monitor any four out of 23 user-selectable engine parameters, including:
- Throttle position
- Engine load
- Fuel pressure
- Fuel system status
- hort-term fuel trim (2 ea)
- Long-term fuel trim (2 ea)
- Battery voltage
- Timing advance
- Coolant temperature
- Air flow rate
- Intake air temperature
- Intake manifold pressure
- O2 sensor output voltage (8 ea)
Plus, if you’re unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident, CarChip Pro will automatically generate an accident log showing the last critical 20 seconds of speed.
