CURT 51180 Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller

Quadratec Part #: 12015.1980
CURT Part #: 51180
The CURT Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller is powered by a Bluetooth-enabled system that connects right to your smartphone. Your phone becomes the brake control monitoring unit in the cab of your vehicle. This brake controller plugs into your vehicle and wirelessly connects to your smartphone, allowing you to control and monitor all trailer brake activity right from your own device. It comes with a customizable app for Apple or Android phones, a portable design to easily switch between vehicle-trailer combinations and a durable, weather-resistant construction. Installation is simply done by plugging into the standard 7-way RV blade socket at the rear of your vehicle and provides a socket to plug in the trailer harness. The Echo trailer brake controller comes with a custom-designed app that can be downloaded for iOS or Android OS phones. With this app, the wireless brake control is able to connect to your smartphone and display brake control settings and activity. It also sends you status updates and allows you to receive incoming calls while the app is running. You can easily transfer it between vehicles and use it with multiple trailers, as long as the vehicle and trailer have a 7-way RV blade connector. A soft locking tab is included for connecting to the 7-way RV blade plugs. This tab helps reduce vibrations and improves connectivity. To protect this outdoor exposed unit CURT constructed this brake controller with a potted enclosure, meaning the inside of the unit is filled with an epoxy resin that seals off the internal components from moisture and the elements. It is compatible with two to four trailer brakes (one to two axles) and can be used with low-voltage or PWM wiring systems. This Echo brake controller is also compatible with cruise control and ABS brakes and has built-in reverse-polarity protection and short-circuit protection. Update your vehicle with the CURT Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller smartphone compatible technology that is Made in the USA.
