Xtrail Trip Computer.


Hello,

This may be a stupid question, but can any one tell me the diffrence between the A and B setting on the trip computer?

They both seem to record the km's and when the car is turned off they reset.

I would have thought that one would have accumulated until you reset it.

Thankyou

Mate,
 They do the exact same thing. I guess you can use 'a' to measure the distance between destinations, whilst using 'b' to record distance between fuel stops etc. It is also good for trail driving, when the map tells you that your turn is 5km ahead, you can then reset 'b' and use it for your 5km trip meter, whilst keeping 'a' for your total trip kms. Hope this helps.

Brett has the answer re A & B - however, neither should reset when you turn the vehicle off.

You're correct in that they should accumulate - - must have a glitch somewhere.

May be a missing (or blown) fuse - - there's been some discussion on this but I can't recall the "topic" to suggest a search.

Not a major problem - - it will get sorted out.......

Hi Stealth,

The answer to your trip meter reset after the ignition is turned off is HERE

You're only missing a fuse to have this operate the way it should.

I reset A every time I fill with petrol; I use B to record kms for particular trips, work trips. And yes, they shouldn't reset when you turn off the engine.
