NEXIQ Technologies has released a mobile app called NEXIQ First-Link that it says gives both drivers and technicians quick and easy access to diagnostic and vehicle information for commercial vehicles and equipment.
NEXIQ says using the NEXIQ Blue-Link Mini as a triage tool in conjunction with First-Link is simple and straightforward. First-Link monitors the vehicle’s health status and helps to increase the vehicle’s uptime. On the road, NEXIQ says drivers can use the app on their smartphones to understand the cause behind an illuminated Check Engine light, for example, so that they can seek assistance if needed (i.e., service and repair). In the shop, service technicians can utilize the information gathered by the app to aid in vehicle service and repair, the company says.
The NEXIQ Blue-Link Mini is a mobile vehicle interface that enables use of either an iOS or Android device (e.g., smartphones or tablets) to communicate with heavy-duty vehicles for quick, wireless access to basic diagnostic information. NEXIQ says it plugs into the vehicle’s diagnostic connector, provides wireless communication with on-board electronic control units, and comes with an integrated 9-pin Deutsch connector. T
The First-Link app is available on the App Store or on Google Play. To download developer tools and to learn more about the NEXIQ Blue-Link Mini solution, please visit the NEXIQ website.
