New CVT Temperature Monitor for Supported WRX and Forester XT Vehicles

CVT Temp_blog_main

One of the more common requests we’ve seen/heard from CVT WRX and Forester XT Accessport users is to integrate a transmission temperature monitor into Accessport firmware.  With heat seeming to play a large role in the strength and reliability of these transmissions, keeping an eye on fluid temperature during higher load situations helps a driver to know when temperatures rise above normal.  A note, “normal” will vary by vehicle and can be dependent on whether or not aftermarket cooling systems have been installed as well as climate conditions/ambient temperature.  We typically see these temperatures increase during extended spirited driving sessions, during extreme off-road conditions, or when towing.  A new CVT Temp. monitor will now allow users to keep an eye on their fluid temperatures during these situations.
