ALLDATA Launches Mobile App For Android Devices

ALLDATA Mobile for Android joins the previously introduced app for use with an iPad. It offers portable access to ALLDATA's OEM diagnostic and repair information. 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.

ALLDATA LLC has launched the Android version of its ALLDATA Mobile app, previously available only for the iPad.

"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 also can be stored by VIN, as well as cleared. The system is easy to use, allowing fast searches for procedures, diagrams, diagnostic data and technical service bulletins, according to ALLDATA.

"ALLDATA Mobile for Android or iOS is destined to become a must-have tool for repair shops," said Lagges. "Efficiency is everything when it comes to remaining competitive, and our mobile app is all about efficiency."
