Car Performance Analyst

car-performance-analystThe Car Performance Analyst is a small device about the size of a Sat Nav that allows you to monitor your cars acceleration, horsepower, torque to name a few. It comes with a 4.3 inch color touchscreen that allows you to view exactly what’s happening in your car.

The gauges on screen allow you to customise them so that you can measure and report back on your 1/4 mile run or your 0 – 60 time. All data can optionally be stored on an SD card so you can run tests at various times of the day.

The Car Performance Analyst works by connecting up to your cars OBD2 (on-board diagnostics) port which can be found normally around the gearshift or under the steering wheel on cars made in the last 8 – 10 years or so.

If the check engine light is on, it displays and defines the diagnostic trouble codes that are causing the warning. For hybrid cars, it monitors the vehicle’s battery level and shows how driving habits affect the transition from electric to gas power.

The Performance Analyst is about the size of a GPS unit and mounts on your windshield.

Available at Hammacher costing $699.95.
