Why Choose Cruise Control For Your Car?

Relax it's time to cruise...

Cruise control may seem completely alien to the uninitiated and perhaps even a little daunting but fear not it could be your new driving ally. At first the feeling of taking your foot off the accelerator and the car not slowing down can be a little frightening. The slight feeling of loss of control will soon disappear when you realise the benefits cruise control will bring.

Our E-Cruise system is 100% digital and requires no mechanical installation, unlike traditional cruise control. The fully integrated CAN-bus cruise control system digitally controls acceleration through the engine management system rather than through physical manipulation of the throttle. Quick and easy to install, it is controlled by the driver from a stalk mounted on the steering column. This makes using it simple too.
Simple to use

With only four main controls ('Set', 'Cancel', 'Resume' and 'On/Off') It couldn't be simpler. To start the cruise control just accelerate to the desired speed for example 70mph and press set. You can turn the cruise control option off by either pressing the 'Cancel' or 'On/Off' button. Alternatively the clutch or brake pedal can be pressed down. After this the previous speed and cruise control function can be recommenced by pressing 'Resume'. 

  So it's simple to fit and simple to use but what benefits does it bring?

Well first of all it can make long journeys on the motorway more enjoyable. The comfort of not have your right foot in a fixed position for a prolonged period of time is plainly evident. With cruise control taking care of that you just relax and focus on the road ahead and any steering. If you need to slow down or stop then simply use the brakes as normal. Then when the danger subsidies simple resume with cruise control. 

Secondly, and this is a biggie, it can help improve your fuel consumption. With fuel costs continuously on the rise this extra assistance is becoming essential. Cruising at a steady speed is the most efficient way to drive. With most drivers being somewhat capricious in regards to speed maintenance cruise control could save a lot of money for a lot of motorists. Instead of slowly creeping up and drifting down through the speeds, or worse still aggressively speeding up and then heavily braking, cruise control keeps your speed consistent. Which brings us nicely to our next advantage.
Stay safe don't speed

Those drivers who happen to be a bit lead footed shall we say, can have a new best friend in cruise control. The feature can help you stay within the speed limits and avoid tickets and points on your license. It also helps improve road safety for everyone. When the speed limits change you can conveniently adjust your speed accordingly. It can also help form more conscientious driving habits. By using cruise control any aggressive driving tendencies can be restrained. 

So with all these benefits to be had and for such little cost the smart choice for you and your motor is cruise control. The smart choice for cruise control is our E-Cruise system. So simple to buy, install and use it's a must for the sagacious driver, visit us today by clicking here to purchase yours
