Emu Caravan Repairs is proud to announce that we are now an authorised dealer for iDrive Australia and now offer full installation of this great product in your towing vehicle.

The iDrive is a great product that improves driving performance and reduces ‘lag’ when you are towing a caravan or trailer. It also improves city driving performance. iDrive is an Australian owned and operated company.

What Is The iDrive Throttle Controller?

The iDrive is a throttle controller that works on both manual and automatic transmission vehicles. In a nutshell, it gives you more control over acceleration under different driving conditions. It provides more response when you need it (particularly when you’re towing or overtaking), and decreased response for some off road conditions, when you require a smoother drive.

The iDrive throttle controller decreases the ‘lag’ that you feel when you accelerate and there is a delay in take off. This can be experienced in turbo diesels, particularly and many 4x4s.

When you are driving off road on rough terrain, you may want less throttle responsiveness and more wheel speed control. When the iDrive is used in these conditions it will smooth out the experience, decreasing the amount of bounce by dampening the throttle and lessening wheel spin.

There are two setting modes in the iDrive, allowing you flexibility in function.

Manual Mode

Manual mode allows you to manually set the throttle responsiveness. The higher the setting, the more reactive or responsive you driving experience.

Automatic Mode

The iDrive is different to other throttle controllers on the market, because of its automatic mode. Automatic mode will change the throttle responsiveness, depending on how much pressure you apply to the accelerator, as you drive. For example, if you are in traffic, and taking off more gently, it will automatically adjust to a low setting. If you are accelerating quickly, and, for example, overtaking, the iDrive will automatically adjust to a higher setting, giving you maximum responsiveness.

Benefits Of A Throttle Controller

The benefit of installing a throttle controller is that you will experience your drive as smoother and have more responsiveness when you need it.

Throttle controllers are very popular with 4×4 drivers, who venture off road, and in vehicles which tend to have sluggish acceleration. They are ideal for towing vehicles, which require extra responsiveness when carrying a heavy load.

iDrive throttle controllers are popular with 4×4 drivers, who want maximum control for lots of different terrains.

Once installed, you shouldn’t notice the iDrive, and that’s the point. Another benefit is that because the throttle controller smooths out you driving experience, it should also save you petrol, and general wear and tear on your vehicle.
