Executives get around by using most every mode of transporation, including cars, planes, boats and trains. Here are some devices to help them go from place to place. CarMD
Here's a gadget to consider if you spend a lot time behind the wheel.
It's called CarMD and it's a small, hand-held device that can be used to monitor your car, truck, minivan or SUV (as long as it's no older than a 1996 model).
To operate the CarMD, turn your car on and then insert the device into the standardized 16-pin Data Link Connector (DLC) on your car (all vehicles made after 1996 have DLC). Depending on the make and model of your car. It is usually located under the dashboard on the driver's side, but may be in another location. If you are driving an Asian or European import the DLC could be behind the ashtray.
Once inserted the device will display either a Green light = go, Yellow light = proceed with caution or a Red light = consult your mechanic.You can also pre-smog test your car (or a car you are considering buying) with this device. If the CarMD reads Yellow or Red the vehicle may not pass a state emissions test.
After you have run the tests on your vehicle you need to write down the VIN number (usually located on your windshield) in order to take advantage of the CarMD online database and support. By going to the Web site CarMD.com and connecting the CarMD device to your PC (no Mac version) you'll be able to run a report to view the probable cause, fix, and cost to return your vehicle to health.
