Introducing CarChip, the smartest OBDII scan tool you can buy!
Award-winning CarChip finalist in G4/TechTV's 2003 Best of CES awards and winner of SEMA 2003 Best Engineered New Product consists of a tiny "black box" data logger, a CD with software for analyzing the data, and a cable and power adapter for downloading. The data logger plugs into the OBDII connector in your car, where it continuously collects and stores data from the car's computer control systems.

CarChip fits all 1996 and later foreign and domestic vehicles to automatically record and store 75 hours of trip details, including:
Time, date and distance for each trip
Speed logged every 5 seconds
Hard acceleration and decelerations
Engine diagnostic trouble codes and status of other engine parameters when the code occurred
Time and date CarChip is connected or disconnected.
In addition to the above features, the advanced model, CarChip E/X stores 300 hours of trip details and measures up to four engine parameters every 5 to 60 seconds (and there are 23 parameters to choose from!).
With the basic CarChip, the data logger will store up to 75 hours of trip details before you'll need to download. If you drive, on average, two hours a day, that's over a month's worth of driving data!
You'll get complete trip details including:
* Time and date for each trip
* Distance traveled
* Speed (recorded every 5 seconds)
* Hard braking and quick accelerations
You can view all of this graphically on your computer screen, giving you a moment-by-moment picture of how you or perhaps your employees or the teenagers in your household are driving.
If the vehicle's check engine light (also known as a malfunction indicator light or MIL) comes on, you'll be able to:
* Read the diagnostic trouble code (or DTC).
* Get the "freeze-frame" sensor readings telling you the status of various engine parameters at the time.
* Reset the light.CARCHIP E/X
CarChip E/X includes all the features of CarChip, plus four times the data storage up to 300 hours of driving data. (The actual number of hours will vary, depending on how frequently you log data.)
As with CarChip, you'll get time and date for each trip, distance, speed, hard accelerations and decelerations, and engine diagnostic trouble codes. With CarChip E/X, though, you'll also be able to monitor any four out of 23 user-selectable engine parameters, including:
* Throttle position
* Engine load
* Fuel pressure
* Fuel system status
* Short- and long-term-fuel trim
* Battery voltage
* Timing advance
* Coolant temperature
* Air flow rate
* Oxygen sensor voltage
Plus, if you're unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident, CarChip E/X will automatically generate an accident log showing the last critical 20 seconds of speed.
