Here’s a sat nav with a difference. The Econav 435 from Vexia claims to be able to reduce your fuel consumption by up to a third.
Available in September for £169 it works by telling you, in real time, the most economical and ecological way to drive, saving you up to £400 a year on your fuel bill and also reducing the amount of amount of CO2 you produce when driving.
Just input the car and fuel type and number of passengers and the Econav 435 will direct drivers on the route that is kindest to their fuel consumption. The system will also advise on which gear to use, while the Accelerator Pedal Indicator will measure driving efficiency. With the average driver notching up 11,000 miles every year, Vexia claims the Econav system will pay for itself in just six months.
