CURT launches mobile, Bluetooth brake control

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — CURT is launching a Bluetooth-enabled mobile brake control, the Echo #51180. This is a portable, plug-and-play device that links to the driver’s smartphone to control and monitor all trailer brake activity.

Travis Machler, director of marketing, stated, “We continue to drive innovation in the towing industry. Echo™ is one example of how CURT is meeting the technological needs of today’s consumers.”

The all-new CURT Echo is truly a brake control for the modern age. It is the first of its kind, featuring Bluetooth technology to wirelessly connect to the driver’s smartphone. With the downloadable Smart Control app for Apple or Android phones, the Echo monitors the trailer brakes, allows for manual control and sends status updates, all using the driver’s smartphone.

The Echo is also designed to be highly portable for use with multiple vehicles and trailers. It easily plugs in between the seven-way RV blade connectors of the vehicle and trailer. The app is able to store multiple user and trailer profiles, and the device itself is constructed for long-lasting weather resistance.

The Echo mobile brake control is available now for order. To learn more, please visit the Echo brake control landing page.
