Bosch has released a new part finder app for Android devices, joining an app already available for iPhone and iPad smartphones and tablets.
The Vehicle Part Finder app include spark plugs, wiper blades, oxygen sensors, fuel pumps, battery chargers - and now air management sensors, gasoline fuel injectors and glow plugs – providing part numbers along with images, features and technical attributes for vehicles operating in the United States and Canada.
“The addition of Android mobile devices expands the penetration of the Part Finder app significantly, as these devices gain in popularity. All functions available in the iPhone and iPad app are now available in the Android version as well,” said Otto Stefaner, project manager for Bosch. “The app is a real boon for customers, service and sales personnel. Anyone who needs to find a Bosch part number from these selected product lines can do so quickly and easily.”
The Apple iPhone or iPad app can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes App Store. The app for Android devices is available from the Amazon App Store for Android or from Google Play.
The app features both browse and search functions so users can find part information by entering vehicle year, make and model, or simply by entering the Bosch part number if they already know it, Bosch said.
Bosch also has a part finder on its website, www.boschautoparts.com. The website version features rotatable and scalable 360 deg. images for oxygen sensors, fuel pumps and other engine management components.
A special tab has also been added to view a product warranty statement. Warranty data has been loaded for most products.
