ALLDATA Expands Mobile Repair App to Android
Jan. 27, 2014—ALLDATA announced Monday the launch of the Android version of its ALLDATA Mobile application.
Previously available for use with Apple’s iOS operating system, ALLDATA Mobile offers portable access to ALLDATA's OEM diagnostic and repair information. According to a press release_notes, the app is designed to increase productivity by eliminating the need for a technician to leave the vehicle in order to refer to a laptop or desktop computer.
"One of the challenges for technology companies, such as ALLDATA, is the prevalence of multiple environments in which we must operate," said ALLDATA president Jeff Lagges. "Both Android and iOS are extremely popular, and users of both can now take advantage of wireless access to factory repair information. A tech can take his or her tablet out into the parking lot, on test drives, into the bay and even under the car. This truly is an industry-changing product."
When paired with a Bluetooth connection adapter, ALLDATA Mobile for Android offers vehicle connectivity through the OBD port. A technician can read VIN information and pull standard P Codes, which are linked to specific manufacturers' repair articles. P Codes can also be stored by VIN, as well as cleared.
