The “General trip” displays the figures relating to Range, Distance, Aver. Consumpt., Curr. consumpt., Avg. speed, Traveltime. “Trip B” displays information concerning Distance B, Aver. Consump. B, Avg. speed B, Traveltime B (driving time). The “Trip B” function can be excluded. Value selected will be displayed until new information is requested.

Trip computer


Range to empty = shows the distance in km (or miles) that the car can still cover before needing fuel, assuming that driving conditions are kept unvaried.

The display will show “- - - -” in the following cases:

  • range lower than 50 km. In this event “- - - -” are preceded by message “Warning Limited Range” (this message will be displayed even if not in Trip Computer mode);
  • car parked with engine running for long time; when restarting range indication will be displayed again.

Distance travelled = shows the km (or miles) covered from the start of the new mission (*).

Average consumption = shows the average consumption calculated from the start of the new mission (*); this value can be expressed in km/l or l/100 km or in mpg.

Instant consumption = shows fuel consumption variation, this value is updated constantly. If the car is parked with engine running the display will show “- - - -“. When restarting the car, the instant consumption indication will be displayed again.

Average speed = shows the average speed of the car in relation with total time elapsed from the start of the new mission (*).

Trip time = time elapsed from the start of the new mission (*).

(*) New mission = starts from last reset:

  • “manual” reset is performed by the driver by pressing the relevant button (see paragraph “Control buttons”)
  • “automatic” reset is performed when the Distance travelled reaches 9999.9 km or when Trip Time reaches 99:59 (99 hours and 59 minutes)
  • after reconnecting the battery.

IMPORTANT Lacking information, Trip computer values are displayed with “- - - -”. When restoring normal operating conditions after a failure, calculation will restart regularly without resetting either previous displayed values or the start of a new mission (*).

IMPORTANT After disconnecting/reconnecting the battery, certain displayed values will be equal to “- - - -” until significant data for recalculation are available.
