Trip computer

The vehicle's trip computer registers data while driving such as mileage, fuel consumption and average speed.

To help promote fuel-efficient driving, data is recorded on both current and average fuel consumption. Data from the trip computer can be displayed in the instrument panel.

Example of trip computer information in a 12-inch instrument panel*. The illustration is generic - details may vary according to vehicle model.

P5-XC90-15w46-Overview trip computer values in driver display 8 inch

Example of trip computer information in an 8-inch instrument panel. The illustration is generic - details may vary according to vehicle model.

The trip computer includes the following gauges:

  • Trip odometer
  • Odometer
  • Current fuel consumption
  • Distance to empty tank
  • Tourist - alternative speedometer

Unit standards for distance, speed, etc. can be changed via system settings in the center display.

Trip odometer

There are two trip odometers: TM and TA.

TM can be reset manually and TA is reset automatically if the vehicle is not used for four hours.

During a drive, the trip odometer registers data on:

  • Mileage
  • Driving time
  • Average speed
  • Average fuel consumption

The readings since the trip odometer's last reset are displayed.

Odometer

The odometer records the vehicle's total mileage. This reading cannot be reset.

Current fuel consumption

This gauge shows the vehicle's fuel consumption at that moment. The reading is updated about once a second.

Distance to empty tank

P5-1846-All-Trip computer symbol Distance to empty

The trip computer calculates the distance that can be driven on the fuel remaining in the tank.

This calculation is based on average fuel consumption during the last 30 km (20 miles) and the amount of fuel remaining in the tank.

When the gauge displays "----", there is not enough fuel remaining to calculate the remaining mileage. Refuel as soon as possible.

Note

The information will change based on your driving style.

An economical driving style will generally increase how far you can drive on a certain amount of fuel.

Tourist - alternative speedometer

The alternative digital speedometer makes it easier to drive in countries where speed limit signs are shown in a different measurement unit than the one shown in the vehicle's gauges.

When used, the digital speed is displayed in the opposite unit to that shown in the analog speedometer. If mph is used in the analog speedometer, the equivalent speed in km/h will be shown in the digital speedometer.
