My new gps has "ecoroute" which will tell you what it thinks your MPG is after you put in your epa, drive around a lot, calibrate it and then it will tell you. I watched a video of it being compared to a SC2's results, the Garmin got 27.? and the SC2 got like 30.1 the guy said that was close, I think its pretty off but Ill leave that up to you.

Hey I got to thinking about it and my gps has a special feature that stops charging itself if it gas gotten to a certain temp inside the car so it does not get too hot and break,

The ironic part is all the complaints about the gps is that it does not charge in the car, making it useless, they do not know about this great feature integrated

ANYWAYS I was thinking and maybe gps's that are made into the car dont overheat as much as the normal ones are because they do not have a battery that is heating it up more?? just a guess or possibility
