Automatic - Driving assistant - plug in unit

Anyone hear of or try one of these little gadgets. It's getting close to Christmas and I do like to get myself toys.

Doesn't look like anything you couldn't do with an iPhone with Google Maps and an Ultra Gauge.

A little unrelated but I picked up a cheap $12 ELM327 OBD II bluetooth adapter on Amazon and installed the Torque app (Engine Management and Diagnostics Tool) from the Google store, onto my Android phone. I think they make one for iPhone too. It cost about $5.00. It gives you any trouble codes, if your engine light or something comes on, but the coolest thing I like about it, is the whole set of gauges that you can bring up on your phone. It's not bad for under $20.00

This^^


I have the EcoRoute HD connected to my 3590 over Bluetooth. Pretty neat.
The HD module (sold separately) plugs into your ODB port. You can change the GPS to display any of the information in "gauge" format.
