Dec. 12, 2013—TRW Automotive Aftermarket North America announced on Wednesday the addition of a vehicle identification number (VIN) reader to its mobile catalog mobile applications.

The apps are available for both the iPhone and Android operating systems.

The update helps users identify parts by simply scanning the VIN number of a vehicle, or typing it in.

“The installer and warehouse distributor can determine which TRW chassis part or brake pad fits the vehicle, allowing for accurate ordering and delivery,” said Mark Thorpe, product group manager for TRW Automotive Aftermarket North America. 

To update the TRW app, download the latest version by visiting the iTunes or Android store.
