Traveling computer


Governing bodies

The switch of functions (And) and a key of dumping (“Reset”) (In) are mounted in the handle of management by a screen wiper.

At the included ignition and repeated pressing the top / bottom party of the switch of functions (And) they are consistently deduced on indication.

Besides, the switch of functions establishes degree of the prevention of 2 alarm systems of excess of speed.

1) On cars with information system of the driver (FIS).

In pressing of a key of dumping (Reset) (at least 1 second) it is possible to null the values kept in memory “time of movement, average fuel consumption and average speed”. Besides, it is possible to interrupt with short-term pressing of a key the alarm computer indication warning about excess of norm of time of continuous stay at a wheel.

If necessary in pressing of a key of dumping it is possible to switch off and turn on the digital display of a control panel.

At ignition inclusion on indication the last is deduced at the moment of ignition switching off function.

At a detachment of plugs of the accumulator all saved-up values are erased.


The traveling computer issues the following information:

· current fuel consumption
· a course stock on fuel
· time of continuous stay at a wheel
· average fuel consumption
· average speed of movement

l/100 km current fuel consumption

On indication values of the current fuel consumption measured in l/100 of km are deduced.

The expense is calculated on each 30-meter site of a way. During a stop of the car indication of last of the calculated values remains.

If after start of the engine function of definition of the current fuel consumption is caused, on the first 30–40 meters of a way on indication its average value is deduced.

By means of this indication it is possible to choose the mode of movement corresponding to optimum fuel consumption.

km a course stock on fuel

The course stock is determined by fuel by the discrete values counted by steps on 10 km. This indication shows, how many kilometers the car can pass on the actual rest of fuel in this mode of movement.

Fuel consumption is accepted to a basis of calculations of a stock of a course on the last 30 km of a way. At more economic subsequent movement the stock of a course increases.

h time in a way

On indication time in a way with counting from the moment of the last dumping of data of memory is deduced. At the switched-off ignition value of time in a way remains. At movement continuation to it the subsequent counting of time is added.
The limit of indications of time in a way makes 23 hours and 59 minutes.

At desire to reckon time in a way since a certain moment clear memory in Reset key pressing.

Reminder on need of a break in movement

In two hours after a start of motion, irrespective of the programmed function there is an automatic switching on time indication in a way. Blinking indication of a look “2:00” reminds the driver of need to make a break in movement.

In short-term pressing the top or bottom party of the switch of functions, or the Reset key this indication can be switched off. If ignition remains included or if a break will make less than 10 minutes, in each next two hours the reminder on need will stop on rest to repeat with time indication in a way of a look 4:00, 6:00 etc.
At duration of a break more than 10 minutes to the switched-off ignition there is a dumping of data of counting of time in a way.

l/100 km Average fuel consumption

On indication average fuel consumption is deduced from the moment of the last dumping of data of memory of a memory. Do not confuse it to the current fuel consumption.

At the switched-off ignition value of average fuel consumption remains in memory. At continuation of movement data of the subsequent expense are considered.

For dumping of data of memory press the Reset key. At journey of the first 30 m after dumping on indication zero value is deduced.

km/h – average speed of movement

On indication average speed of movement is deduced from the moment of the last dumping of data of memory. At the switched-off ignition this size remains in memory. At continuation of movement data of the subsequent run are considered.

For dumping of data of memory press the Reset key.

Indicators of fuel consumption, course stock on fuel and speed are displayed in metric, and in certain export options in English system of units (km l/100 – mpg, km – mi, km/h – mph).

On an illustration as an example indication of the current fuel consumption is shown.
