Continental Releases Free Gauges2Go App for Engine Enthusiasts

The new VDO Gauges2Go app allows enthusiasts to view VDOgauges in a virtual simulation as if they were mounted right on their dashboards.

Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket, manufacturer and supplier of VDO OE-engineered instrumentation and replacement parts for the custom truck and car enthusiast market, has unveiled a new smartphone app for its legendary and innovative VDO instrument line.

Called Gauges2Go, the new VDO app is available, free of charge, from iTunes for use on all iOS smart devices and Google Play for Android.

The new VDO Gauges2Go app allows enthusiasts to view VDOgauges in a virtual simulation as if they were mounted right on their dashboards. It includes a fully functional GPS speedometer, so any mobile device or tablet with the application is able to produce an authentic looking dashboard.

The dashboard is easily customizable and can display any of the current VDO gauge lines, allowing users to toggle between displays and pick the instrument look they like best. The app also gives the user the option to change the gauge’s illumination as well as its bezel type and style.

In addition to the dashboard simulation, the VDO Gauges2Go app provides a direct link to the entire VDO Instrument online catalog and offers easy access to a dealer locator.

According to Matt Lacko, VDO Product Manager, “We are very excited about this revolutionary app and the real advantages it will give our customers in selecting the ideal instrumentation for their needs and making the best buying decision."

"We are also currently developing a dongle for the OBD II port, which will expand the capability of the app and allow the user to access generic OBD II information from the vehicle. This will enable the water temperature, tachometer and voltmeter gauges to work functionally with the vehicle, he said.

VDO instruments deliver world-class quality and innovation and are legendary for their superb fit, finish and appearance, as well as rock-solid reliability. Continental builds every VDO gauge with the same precision and quality as the OE instrumentation it delivers to OEMs worldwide.
