Users of the Dayco VIN-scanning smartphone app can now utilize Dayco’s AR (Augmented Reality) Training program. This new training was created to help provide awareness about serpentine belt and timing belt replacement jobs and is accessible through the Learning Center within the Dayco App. The AR Training is a three-dimensional (3-D) training feature that gives users the ability to see when to replace a serpentine belt and what goes into a complex timing belt replacement job.

Launched at AAPEX 2013 in Las Vegas, this 3-D training technology is accessible when users hold their smartphone or tablet over specially designed Dayco counter mats. When done so, the image of an engine comes to "life" through the use of Augmented Reality technology, creating a digitally enhanced view of the engine. Dayco’s 3D training is available for both serpentine belt drive systems as well as complex timing jobs. If a user does not possess a Dayco counter mat, they can still take advantage of the training through a video embedded within the Dayco app.

“Professional technicians and shop owners are constantly searching for new ways to educate consumers on the importance of preventive maintenance,” said Robert Christy, director of marketing for Dayco. “Dayco’s -D training is the newest way we’ve added increased value to our training initiatives while following our mission statement, which is to be an innovative, technology-driven organization that provides valuable tools and service for our customers.”

The Dayco VIN-scanning parts lookup app gives professional technicians and do-it-yourselfers instant access to a complete list of Dayco parts 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, or by entering the vehicle’s license plate digits and the state of the license plate. After finding the needed part, app-users also have access to part specs, routing instructions and step-by-step installation videos.

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.

Visit daycoapp.com to download the Dayco app and view a demonstration video. The free app also is available in the Apple App Store, and for Android systems in the Google Play Store.
