    Fiat's innovative Ecodrive has just won a place in the annual Auto Express Awards. What I like about it is its simplicity which may encourage/allow people to use it.:thumb: It employs Fiats " Blue&Me" USB interface to download car running data to a PC for subsequent analysis to help drivers improve their driving economy. Incidentally using perhaps the first inroad of Microsoft to a mass produced car ( shades of things to come???:eek:) it gives owners access to kinematic data previously only enjoyed by owners with sophisticated car onboard computer systems. Useful driver aid in today's economic climate, :thumb:sop to the tree huggers among us,:eek: first mass market bridge of PC software to everyday motoring,:dk: advertising gimmick,:mad: or spy in the cab for Microsoft :wallbash: you decide.
