CURT, supplier of a complete line of towing products and the leading manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, has introduced a Bluetooth-enabled, smartphone-compatible mobile towing scale called BetterWeigh™. This innovative, compact device plugs into your vehicle diagnostic port (OBD-II) and measures the real-time weight of your vehicle and trailer, cargo / payload, tongue weight, pin weight, weight distribution and trailer brake gain, displaying them right on your Apple or Android phone.
The patented BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale #51701 is powered by TowSense™ technology, an accelerometer that measures changes in force and acceleration to provide a live readout of the weights associated with towing. This allows for greater convenience and safer towing by eliminating the guesswork in your trailer setup.
BetterWeigh™ also has virtually no installation requirements. It simply plugs into the OBD-II port, below the steering wheel, and wirelessly connects to your smartphone with Bluetooth and a free, downloadable app.
BetterWeigh™ works for bumper pull towing setups, gooseneck towing and 5th wheel towing. The weight distribution feature streamlines the WD hitch setup process and makes adjustments more accurate. BetterWeigh™ is also ideal when loading your vehicle with cargo, supplies or equipment, giving you a live look at the vehicle’s weight, as cargo is added. For more information visit www.curtgroup.com.
