Bosch releases Android part finder app

Posted on August 30, 2012

BROADVIEW, Ill. — Bosch has released an Android version of its vehicle part finder app, allowing users to access parts information from their phone or tablet.

Bosch products currently covered in the vehicle part finder app include spark plugs, wiper blades, oxygen sensors, fuel pumps, battery chargers — and now air management sensors, gasoline fuel injectors and glow plugs. The app provides part numbers along with images, features and technical attributes for vehicles operating in the U.S. and Canada.

“The app features both browse and search functions so users can find part information by entering vehicle year, make and model, or simply by entering the Bosch part number if they already know it,” said Otto Stefaner, project manager for Bosch.

The new Android app is available from the Amazon app store or from Google Play. The previously released Apple iPhone or iPad version can be downloaded from iTunes.

Separate from the mobile app, the Bosch vehicle part finder on the www.boschautoparts.com website now features rotatable and scalable 360-degree images for oxygen sensors, fuel pumps and other engine management components. The user clicks the 360-degree symbol to open the image player, and the player shows a 360-degree view of the part.

A special tab has also been added to view a product warranty statement.  Warranty data have been loaded for most products found on the website.

“The Bosch part finder app complements the comprehensive vehicle part finder function on the www.boschautoparts.com website, which lists part numbers for products available on the Bosch part finder app as well as additional Bosch product categories,” Stefaner said. “This makes it easy to find the right Bosch part for virtually any vehicle sold in the USA and Canada.”
