CURT Echo Mobile Brake Control Receives Global Media Award

New Smartphone Brake Control Selected for International Consumer Appeal

Eau Claire, WI – November, 2, 2018 — CURT, the leading manufacturer of USA-made hitches and a complete line of towing products, won a Global Media Award this year at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV for its revolutionary new CURT Echo mobile brake control.

The Echo™ was engineered to be the brake control for the modern age, turning the driver’s smartphone into the brake control interface. Its highly portable, compact design plugs in between any standard 7-way RV blade vehicle-trailer wiring connection. The CURT Echo wirelessly connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and uses the Echo™ Smart Control app to monitor all trailer brake activity. Compatible with most Apple and Android phones, the Echo™ makes it easy to plug in, set up and tow. It also stores multiple vehicle-trailer profiles for easy transfer between towing setups.

CURT received a 2018 Global Media Award from the INMA for the Echo™, calling it one of the best products at this year’s SEMA Show. It was chosen based on its level of international consumer appeal.
