Conclusion to the screen of the multipurpose information display of indications of the traveling computer

In a trip course the traveling computer informs the driver on the current operational characteristics which it continuously registers and as appropriate processes.

By pressing the management button the screen of the display can the following information is deduced:

  1. Current fuel consumption;
  2. Average fuel consumption;
  3. Absolute fuel consumption from the moment of the beginning of measurements;
  4. Average speed of movement;
  5. Run;
  6. Settlement stock of a course before refueling;
  7. Stop watch indications;
  8. Temperature of external air.

The conclusion of some characteristics and indicators is carried out with use of abbreviations. The conclusion of messages to the screen of the display is carried out as their priority. Management of a conclusion of indications of the traveling computer is carried out by means of the buttons which have been built in about an end face of the handle of the right podrulevy switch, thus the button S serves for a choice of a mode of functioning of the computer, the button R — for an exit from a mode.

Current fuel consumption

Depending on speed of movement of the car, the current fuel consumption is displayed the display the following units of measure:

  1. the l/h — For speed of movement is lower than 13 km/h;
  2. km l/100 — For speed of movement over 13 km/h.

Average fuel consumption

Calculation of average fuel consumption at will of the operator can be begun at any moment anew.

Absolute fuel consumption

Start of measurement of absolute fuel consumption at will of the operator can be made at any moment anew by a way of pressing the button R.

Average speed of movement

Start of counting of average speed of movement at will of the operator can be begun at any moment anew by means of the button R — for example, at the beginning of each trip.


Stops in a way with ignition switching off in calculation are not accepted.

Run

On the screen of the display the distance in kilometers passed by the car is deduced. Counting start at will of the operator can be made at any moment anew.

Course stock before the next refueling

At a course stock over 50 km its value pays off on the basis of information on residual amount of fuel in a tank and data on an average an expense on the last 20 — 30 kilometers of run. After carrying out refueling the new indication is displayed the display or after pressing the button R, or established automatically after a start of motion and pass by the car of some short distance.

When in a fuel stock in a tank remains less than on 50 km of run, the computer passes to a mode «A settlement stock of a course before refueling» without button S pressing. Indication thus can start to blink, or on the screen Range message is deduced. This warning mode of functioning of the computer can be compulsorily disconnected by a choice way instead of it another. Automatic return to a mode «A settlement stock of a course before refueling» occurs after a stop in a way.

On the models equipped with the diesel X20DTL engine, for the purpose of acceleration of a warming up of the last to normal working temperature the heating of cooling liquid is realized. The additional fuel consumption connected with this option by the traveling computer is not considered that can lead to some overestimate of a settlement stock of a course before the next refueling.

Stop watch

Inclusion of functions «Dumping of indications» - "Start" - "Stop" - «Dumping of indications» is made by pressing the button R. The stop watch is intended for conducting timing of time spent to ways, thus switching off of ignition involves a stop watch stop. At ignition inclusion counting renews. Start of new counting can be made at any moment at will of the operator.
