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

In a course of a trip the travelling computer informs the driver on current operational characteristics which it continuously registers also in appropriate way processes.

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

  1. The current expense of fuel;
  2. The average expense of fuel;
  3. The absolute expense of fuel from the moment of the beginning of measurements;
  4. Average speed of movement;
  5. Run;
  6. Settlement stock of a course before refuelling;
  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 display screen is carried out as their priority. Management of a conclusion of indications of the travelling computer is carried out by means of the buttons which have been built in about an end face of the handle right подрулевого of the switch, thus button S serves for a choice of a mode of functioning of the computer, button R — for an exit from a mode.

The current expense of fuel

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

  1. л/ч — For speed of movement below 13 km/h;
  2. Km l/100 — For speed of movement over 13 km/h.

The average expense of fuel

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

The absolute expense of fuel

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

Average speed of movement

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


Stops in a way with ignition deenergizing in calculation are not accepted.

Run

On the display screen the kilometric area passed by the car is deduced. Readout start at will of the operator can be made at any moment anew.

Stock of a course before the next refuelling

At a stock of a course over 50 km its value pays off on the basis of the information on residual quantity of fuel in a tank and the data about an average the expense on the last 20—30 kilometres of run. After refuelling carrying out the new indication is displayed the display or after pressing 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 in a mode «the Settlement stock of a course before refuelling» without pressing of button S. Indication thus can start to blink, or on the screen message Range is deduced. The given warning mode of functioning of the computer can be compulsorily disconnected by a choice instead of it another. Automatic return to a mode «the Settlement stock of a course before refuelling» occurs after a stop in a way.

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

Stop watch

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