Dayco Products, LLC announced Tuesday the latest feature to its vehicle identification number (VIN) scanning smartphone app. Today’s technologies on iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets allow users of the industry’s first VIN scanning app to enter their VIN or license plate via voice recognition.
“We recognized that typing in a VIN or a license plate number when working on a vehicle could be difficult,” says Robert Christy, Director of Marketing for Dayco. “Therefore, users of the Dayco VIN Scanning App can now simply say their VIN or license plate number for a complete list of available Dayco parts for that specific vehicle.”
The iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets are equipped with a microphone attached to the keyboard that now works with the Dayco App. By simply tapping the microphone and speaking the VIN or license plate number, all available parts Dayco manufactures for that application will be shown.
The Dayco VIN Scanning parts lookup app gives professional technicians and do-it-yourselfers instant access to a complete list of Dayco parts, routings and installation instructions that match a vehicle’s year, make and model by simply scanning the VIN barcode under the windshield or in the door jamb of the vehicle, by entering the vehicle’s license plate digits and the state of the license plate, or by speaking the VIN or license plate into the microphone within the phone.
With a “Where to Buy” feature, the app gives users the ability to find the closest parts store selling Dayco products, complete with store contact information and directions to the store location via a map search, all through the use of GPS.
