The Detroit Connect mobile app is now available for download for Freightliner and Western Star customers who have an active Detroit Connect subscription. This allows those customers to access information about their vehicles’ performance without needing to be at a desk or on a computer.
The app offers many of the same features found in the web-based Detroit Connect portal, making it easier for customers, from on-highway to vocational and medium duty, to gain insights about fleet health, fault event diagnostic information and fault history delivered by Detroit Connect Virtual Technician, the company says. A push notification feature immediately notifies users of “service now” fault events delivered by Virtual Technician. With this feature, customers can make quicker maintenance decisions when there is a critical issue with a vehicle. The app is also designed to incorporate other Detroit Connect features, including Detroit Connect Analytics fuel efficiency insights and safety reporting, which will soon be available for the new Freightliner Cascadia.
The app, available for iOS or Android-enabled mobile devices, is available for free in Apple’s App Store or Google Play.
