INTRODUCING THE GARRETT G-SMART MODULE
With the award-winning Garrett G-Smart Module, you can track your turbo’s performance in real-time
Garrett Advancing Motion unveiled its new G-Smart Module at the 2023 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) tradeshow in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The G-Smart Module is your turbocharger’s ultimate companion, guiding you towards unparalleled performance.
Immediately upon launch, this innovative product which has seen Garrett take a leap into the electronic product segment has made waves in the world of racing and performance enthusiasts.
This cutting-edge product seamlessly transmits turbo speed and boost, via Bluetooth directly to your mobile device (for use with iOS and Android mobile devices. Mobile device and mount not included).
This important data allows users to see if they are operating the turbocharger within its recommended RPM limits to optimise durability and performance.
Marking a significant milestone for Garrett, the G-Smart Module incorporates a Bluetooth module paired with a user-friendly plug-and-play wiring harness.
Notably, this harness accepts not only Garrett threaded and flange style speed sensors but also sensors from other manufacturers, expanding its compatibility.
In a noteworthy recognition at the PRI tradeshow, the G-Smart Module secured the title of Top Engine Product in the featured product showcase, as chosen by PRI (Performance Racing Industry).
This accolade not only places Garrett’s product at the pinnacle of engine-related innovations but also positioned it as top three in the Best Engine Product category.
Adding to the accolades, Garrett’s G-Smart Module also found favour with PRI’s guest judge Garrett Read (Founder of American Muscle HD), who identified it as his favourite new product at the PRI tradeshow.
Garrett says this dual recognition highlights the G-Smart module’s contribution to the performance racing industry, setting a new standard for turbocharger monitoring.
Easy to Install and Setup
Say goodbye to tangled wires and tedious setups. Bluetooth functionality means no wires through the firewall for a quick, and easy installation. The plug-and-play harness accepts Garrett flange and threaded style speed sensors.
Kits are available without a speed sensor for users who already have a speed sensor, and with for those who don’t have one.
A 12V switched power and sufficient ground connection are all you need to get started.
The Sensor Setup menu is loaded with existing Garrett Turbocharger part numbers, models, compressor wheel blade counts and max-rated turbo speed.
Custom configurations can also be created for Garrett models without speed sensor ports or for non-Garrett manufactured turbochargers that utilise the same style speed sensors.
Analyse Turbo Speed and Boost Pressure
With the device paired and the car running, the mobile device screen will light up with live turbo speed and boost pressure (if connected) in a dynamic gauge and graphical format.
The gauge display features a constant live data feed and has a marker that freezes on peak turbo speed.
The graph plot length can display up to 120 seconds of live data.
The live data feed can be paused allowing users to review data points within the plot length with a touch of the screen.
Users can connect the analog output to an external data logger/ECU for complete data logging.
Garrett warns, the use of any turbocharger product above maximum turbocharger speed is at the owner’s risk and can result in damage and premature failure.
To protect the turbocharger from overspeed when operating, a speed sensor can be installed into the compressor housing to monitor shaft speed.
• Bluetooth operation transmits data from the module to the G-Smart application
• Modern display with live turbo speed and boost pressure (if connected) readings
• Gauge sweep will transition colour (G,Y,R) signalling the approach to max-rated turbo speed
• Marker on gauge sweep indicates peak turbo speed
• Display up to 120 seconds of turbo speed and boost data in easy-to-view graphical format
• Compatibility with both Android and iOS devices
• Easy installation and configuration with pre-set Garrett models and part numbers
• Create custom configurations for Garrett turbochargers without pre-machined speed sensor port or non-Garrett manufactured turbochargers
• Min/Max Turbo speed and boost pressure stored in app for future analysis
With its Bluetooth connectivity, user-friendly app, and industry accolades, Garrett says the G-Smart Module stands as a testament to the company’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation in the performance racing segment.
Garrett: Advancing Motion
The Garrett name ties back to turbo origins in the 1950s. At that time, entrepreneur and engineer Cliff Garrett led a project team to develop a turbocharger for a Caterpillar D9 crawler tractor, marking the beginning of the turbocharged era for the automotive industry.
Garrett technologies and innovations have been used by nearly every major global auto maker, resulting in approximately 100 million vehicles with its products and an average launch rate of 100 new applications annually spanning, gas, diesel, natural gas, electric and fuel cell powertrains.
Today, Garrett’s highly-engineered portfolio is rooted in more than 60-years of pioneering turbocharging systems with its innovations enabling its customers to set new benchmarks in vehicle performance while addressing evolving fuel efficiency and exhaust emissions regulations.
