The new Truma app is a “must have” for campers and offers completely new digital convenience.
This app keeps all users up-to-date with Truma news and product information. Also, customers can register and add the Truma products that they use, allowing them fast access to user manuals, brief instructions, tips and how-to-videos in the language of their choice, be it German, English, French or Italian.
A further benefit: The integrated search tool allows authorised Truma dealers and service partners to be located very quickly. To do this, the app uses the user’s current location or searches in a specific region according to town or postal code. The results are shown on a map and also as a list which states the distance and the address.
An absolute highlight of the Truma app are two camping tools: Where is the best place for my vehicle? Where is the sun at what time? The Truma sun dial helps select the right position and slot for the vehicle via a compass that shows where and when the sun rises and sets and where it reaches its highest point. And that’s not all. The Truma app also has a vehicle levelling function to ensure that the caravan or motorcaravan is perfectly horizontal. Just place your smartphone on the floor of the vehicle, enter the axle distance and the app will guide you through the levelling process with brief voice instructions and acoustic signals.
This is just the beginning. “We have plenty more ideas for developing the app and offering campers added value,” says Monika Prandl, online marketing manager at Truma. Wait and see!
The Truma app is available for smartphones and tablets and is suitable for both Android and iOS systems. It can be downloaded free of charge in the Apple App Store and in Google Play as of 29th August 2014. The new App will also be available to view on a larger than life phone on our stand at the Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC in October.
