I can agree that these are not the utmost important measurements to monitor, but it certainly provides some entertainment while commuting 100+ miles per day....
Interesting, That's the same info that I can monitor on my BMW X5 gasser. Wonder why the new TDI's are limited to what I mentioned above?

Very interesting - I would expect it to be a protocol issue limiting communication. There may be a software update or something from Garmin that they may be working on to address this since the vehicle is so new.

I can sympathize with the guys at Garmin, there are THOUSANDS or different types of vehicles, configurations, engines, emissions data, communication platforms, computer system 'updates', recalls, reflashes... It's amazing that these devices work as well as they do.

I would be tempted to email an inquiry to Garmin to see if they have any updates in the works to help unleash some more data to view with your EcorouteHD. Maybe they can set you up as a beta tester?!?

Has anyone hooked up something like a Scangauge II to their TDI yet? If something like that only outputs the same limited info as the HD, then I think it would be a VW issue and not Garmin. Just a thought.

Ok, so i stopped by my awesome MINI shop (Way Motor Works) and asked about this issue. Long story short he gave me a Scangauge II to take home over the weekend. I'll hook it up to the JSW and see what info i can get out of it. I'll report back Sunday at the earliest, but probably Monday.

It's official, the scangauge II didn't report manifold pressure or intake temps either. I even tried using it's xgauge feature to unlock other engine parameters, but no luck. So I think it's VW, and not Garmin, that is not showing the all the data.

On the plus side, the scanguage is a pretty neat device. I'm thinking of getting one for my MINI. It was really nice having a 'real' water temp gauge (when i used it in my mini). I will say that the vw water temp gauge is pretty accurate vs the scanguage.
