One of the things that I have noticed recently is that there are lots of apps for the iPhone that gives drivers information on their car like acceleration, 1/4 mile times and more. Garmin has now announced a new ecoRoute hd device that is an accessory that is easy to install that turns compatible nuvi units into real-time diagnostics computers.

The device plugs into the onboard diagnostic port of a vehicle and sends data wirelessly to compatible nuvi units. The module fits standard OBD II ports, which should mean it is compatible with all modern computer controlled vehicles regardless of the brand.

The device can show the driver all sorts of data from RPM, temperature, and manifold pressures and more. Perhaps the coolest part is that the device can show trouble codes and allows the driver to reset check engine lights. The device works with current model nuvi devices like the 1260, 1370, 1390, 1490, and 1609. It will ship in March for $149.99.
