Talking Inclinometer

Just added an inclinometer to my Grand Vitara.



The title isn't a typo, it indicates your attitude by measuring how much incline you are trying to push. This was a very hard to get item, had to get it via eBay USA.

Good !

I think every road contractor should fit in his car and indicate MAX/MIN/AVG Pitching & Rolling figures for the road he has laid !

Does it show the altitude too?

Does it self level? Must be working of an internal gyro.

Show the incline that your car is going up or down. Also shows horizontal roll of the car

Is it not the same thing thats standard feature on Pajeros and similar SUVs ? Its the first time I see this thing in digital form.

Does e-bay US send stuff to india ? I had tried few things from e-bay and amazon.com but could not complete the transaction because India was not in their courier destinations.

More like a 2-axis accelerometer. No need to calibrate it since it knows that gravity = down!
