VMS 240 CL
This page will give you just a small taste of the many features the VMS 240 provides.
Here is all your key information in one simple screen. In Top-Center we place the transmission status. Icons indicate whether your cruise control is active, the transmission is in economy code, and your torque converter is active. Not shown is another icon which lights to indicate transmission trouble.
The screen also provides three gauges. You can easily configure the VMS to display your personal favorites – from a list including your most important temperatures, performance indicators, fuel economy measurements, and more. For a list of gauges and their explanation, click here.
The Scan Screen gives you access to all the many gauges features on the VMS 240. When in Scan mode, the VMS cycles through your favorite gauges, showing the ones you want to see, skipping the ones you don't. You control the speed, and you can stop it at any time. By using the selector knob you can dial in any particular gauge, watch it, and resume scanning with the press of a button.
You can choose a metric readout for any gauge, and you can also choose to display a "histogram" which shows how the gauge value is fluctuating over time. This is particularly important for temperature readings – knowing the absolute temperature is only half the story. It is just as important to know whether the temperature is stable – and only the VMS can show you the history of the reading at a glance.
Like any good odometer, the VMS will show you how far you've traveled. But it's also the most accurate fuel meter you can get, so finally you can really monitor your fuel economy as you drive. As well as elapsed driving time, average speed – all instantly calculated at your fingertip.
VMS users particularly enjoy the daily drive planning tool. You simply dial in how far you want to drive – or the distance to your destination – and the VMS automatically counts down the miles. Furthermore, it calculates your estimated time of arrival and the fuel required to get there – and updates the calculations as you drive, based on your actual average speed and fuel economy. Use it to plan your fuel stops, make reservations at your campground, and simply to plan your driving day.
The VMS also keeps a second trip odometer and a trip archive that can hold over 4000 past trips. All the trip features are extremely easy to use. Simply press "TRIP" to bring up the screen, "CLEAR" to clear the old trip and start a new one. It could not possibly be any easier.
Professional mechanics rely on their "scan tool" to identify problems with your engine. We've put a professional-quality scan tool right into the VMS. When the "Check Engine" light comes on in your dash, the VMS automatically scans the problem. And not only does it report the trouble codes that the mechanics use, but it provides a plain language explanation of the problem. It even records the problem in permanent memory, so you can catch intermittent problems and show your mechanic a history of your engine's malfunctions.
There are a lot more features available on the VMS 240 CL. There is an elegant Maintenance Tracking system, already pre-programmed with the maintenance recommendations for most popular RV chassis. RV "pilots" appreciate the Pre-Drive Checklist. The Cruise Monitor feature displays your Cruise Control Set Speed any time you set or adjust your cruise control – which makes it easy to get your cruise set just right.
The VMS 240 CL is easily configurable to operate just the way you want it – your choice of colors schemes, gauges, scanning speed, default screens, and more.
