In addition to the satellite signal, the app also uses a variety of other components to provide the functionality. First of all, the app allows you to scan the VIN number of the vehicle to automatically retrieve the most current information about the vehicle. Once you have the info, you can refresh the radio with the most up-to-date data.
Next, the app is able to display your incoming inventory using a proprietary technology known as DigitalDashboard. This system allows you to take a picture of the sold vehicle and upload it to the SiriusXM database, a feat that would be a feat of magic if you were working with a paper copy. You can then compare the image to the real deal to see if you have indeed made the correct decision.
Finally, the app provides you with three months of complimentary sat radio. However, only one vehicle per dealership is eligible to receive the snazzy smarm. If yours isn"t lucky enough to be the winner, you might have to settle for a refund. After all, who wants to waste your time with something that you can"t try out for yourself?
As a matter of fact, a plethora of mobile applications have been released in the last couple of years that offer similar functionality. Among these is the XM Dealer app, which you can download for free from the Google Play store. Of course, before you can use this impressive application, you will need to ensure your dealership has some pretty good property to work with.
