I've been thinking of buying the Ecoroute for my Garmin 3790 and have 2 questions for you.
Will it display transmission temps? That's pretty important to me, but I don't see it on your list and I can't find the answer anywhere else, so I'm thinking it won't.
Can you use the GPS along with the gauges at the same time? Does the GPS take over automatically when a turn comes up for your route? Or what happens? I like only have one display on the dash, just not sure how it handles the GPS and gauge operation at the same time.
