ASA Electronics has expanded its focus to bring smart trailering connectivity to the automotive market.
According to a press release, the first all-new 2020 GMC Sierra heavy-duty trucks now include technological advancements including the enhanced ProGrade trailering system, offering compatibility with select features of iN∙Command control systems.
iN∙Command Control Systems bring smart home technology to the campsite, offering remote control for slideouts, climate scheduling, and generator functions as well as monitoring water, fuel and battery levels. Owners of the 2020 Sierra HD will be able to control and monitor select functions of their RV like turning on the air conditioner or checking tank levels using the myGMC mobile app or through the in-vehicle touchscreen via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
“Though this partnership we’ve been able to create an invaluable connection between an end user’s truck and RV. We put virtually everything they need on their phone, and now it can be on their dash, too,” said ASA Electronics vice president of RV sales, Jim Hess. “The connectivity and brand exposure through GMC dramatically increase the value of building RVs with iN∙Command installed.”
“We are focused on improving the towing experience, whether you are trailering for the first time or are an expert who tows every weekend,” said Tony Johnson, director of truck strategy for General Motors.
Select iN∙Command Control Systems are also compatible with the Chevrolet 2020 Silverado HD through the myChevrolet mobile app. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD and the 2020 GMC Sierra HD are on sale now.
