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 Echo™ 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 7-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.
