features & Benefits
Simple Installation and Downloading
Plug-and-go installation takes less than 30 seconds: just plug CarChip Pro into the OBD II port. When you are ready to get the device data, simply unplug the device from the vehicle and connect it to your PC. CarChip Pro stores 300 hours of driving data for easy download to your PC. You’ll see each trip’s date, time, and distance, as well as how the driver and the engine performed.
Reduce Cost and Wear and Tear on Your Vehicles
Safer driving means less wear and tear. CarChip Pro will also log engine performance parameters so you be able to troubleshoot engine repairs. You’ll also know whether your vehicle will pass a smog test.
Know What Your “Check Engine Light” Means
CarChip Pro will show you the diagnostic code and its description when your Engine Malfunction light is lit, along with detailed “freeze-frame” sensor readings that show exactly what was happening in the engine at the time it came on. You can even turn the light off.
Software Included is Easy to Use
Download data easily to your PC with included cable. No plan required. The included software lets you review and clear diagnostic codes, view summary and detail reports, and copy data to spreadsheets for further analysis. It also allows you to set audible alarms on the device.
Summary Reports & Graphs
Reports allow you to analyze the data to improve driver safety, as well as review engine performance. Get individual graphs and summary reports for easy review of driving data and engine performance. You can even calculate gas mileage.
Vehicle Activity Report Keeps You Apprised of Important Data
You’ll get a detailed list of the number of miles, distance, and number of days the vehicle was driven and how long it took. You’ll see each trip’s maximum speed, and the number of hard or extreme acceleration and deceleration.
Set Audible Alarms to Alert Drivers When a Limit is Exceeded
Drivers will know instantly when they have exceeded a limit, such as maximum speed, so that they can correct it immediately.
User-set Thresholds Reinforce Safe Driving
Allows user-set thresholds for audible alarms for speed, acceleration, and braking (post-drive reports and graphs show when, for how long, and number of times thresholds were exceeded).
Monitor Trips and Assign Categories
Stores up to 300 hours of driving data with trip details such as speed, distance traveled, time/date.
Complete trip details including time and date, distance traveled, speed (1- or 5-second intervals) and extreme acceleration and braking. You can assign trips as business, commute, or personal for easy category tracking.
Choose Which Engine Parameters to Monitor
CarChip Pro logs any four of 23 different sensors including battery voltage, RPM, coolant temperature, and fuel trim.
Keep Your Vehicle Emissions Test Ready
CarChip Pro reports which emissions control systems have been tested by the vehicle’s OBD II system. It records misfires, fuel trims and other emissions monitors depending on the vehicle manufacturer make and model. You’ll know before you go in that your vehicle will pass the smog test.
