Trip computer where provided Fiat Panda.

The “Trip computer” is provided on cars fitted with multifunction display or reconfigurable multifunction display. The “Trip computer” displays information (with ignition key at MAR) relating to the operating status of the car. This function comprises the “General trip” concerning the “complete mission” of the car (journey) and “Trip B”, (only available on reconfigurable multifunction display), concerning the partial mission of the car; this latter function (as shown in fig. 31) is “contained” within the complete mission.

Both functions are resettable (reset – start of new mission).

“General Trip” displays the figures relating to:

  • Range to empty (where provided).
  • Trip distance.
  • Average consumption (where provided).
  • Instant consumption (where provided).
  • Average speed.
  • Trip time (driving time).

“Trip B” (only available on reconfigurable multifunction display), displays the figures relating to:

  • Trip distance B.
  • Average consumption B (where provided).
  • Average speed B.
  • Trip time B (driving time).

The “Trip B” function can be excluded (see paragraph “Trip B On/Off”). “Range to empty” cannot be reset.
