IRVINE, Calif. (March 12, 2012) - Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announced the "MyMazda" Service app for Mazda owners with Android-compatible devices. The app is now available for download at the Google Play Store, formerly known as the Android Market.
"MyMazda," already available on iTunes, was one of the first automotive apps of its kind to provide Mazda owners with real-time information about their vehicle. The free “MyMazda” app provides easy access to service offers personalized to their vehicle, scheduled maintenance reminders, factory maintenance schedules and other information about their vehicle in one simple app.
As Android is the world's No.1 smartphone operating system, the "MyMazda" app is available to more Mazda owners in addition to the app released on iTunes late last year. The app features the ability to scan vehicle identification numbers (VINs) when adding new vehicles to the application, making the app set-up and personalization process effortless. Mazda owners can update their contact information and upload personal vehicle photos for each vehicle they register.
Using the vehicle locator feature, locating your vehicle such as in a large parking lot, has become even more convenient using the “MyMazda” app. Owners can now add photos to the vehicle locator feature, ensuring a quick return to their vehicle utilizing GPS and visual cues in the photos.
Additionally, the "MyMazda" app is linked with the “Mazda Assist” app. Designed to help Mazda drivers obtain immediate roadside assistance, should they find themselves with a flat tire, out of gas, locked out of their car or in need of a tow due to a mechanical failure. The app puts drivers directly in touch with a roadside assistance agent who can quickly dispatch reliable and professional roadside assistance to the vehicle's exact location via GPS-enabled technology, anytime. Drivers are given estimated time of arrival (ETA) and Service Provider information throughout the roadside event. The “Mazda Assist” app is free download and available on both iTunes and the Google Play Store.
