New Opel Insignia customers can look forward to using their smartphones to find out how they can operate and care for their vehicle. All they need to do is download the free myOpel app with the additional augmented-reality function, myOpel Manual.
After installing the app with myOpel Manual, owners need only scan a part of the car that needs explanation with the smartphone’s camera. The display will show a yellow circle around the icon or button, and the customer then just taps the symbol on the touchscreen to get an immediate explanation.
After a quick scan of the engine compartment with a smartphone, myOpel Manual will also show the location of the containers and fillers, as well as the relevant section of text from the owner’s manual.
myOpel Manual is the latest proof of the importance Opel places on connectivity and its service to customers.
myOpel Manual for the Insignia is scheduled to become part of the recently introduced myOpel app from late fall. This app enables dialog between customer, dealer and manufacturer. It also offers practical functions such as a parking space finder and an electronic accident report. myOpel Manual is initially available for the iOS operating system, with an Android-based version to follow shortly.
“Customers should feel completely satisfied every time they come into contact with the Opel brand, as well as with their daily use of and interaction with their car. Contact with the brand is now even closer through the free myOpel app, which enables the dealer and customer to stay in touch. And the current highlight is the intuitive myOpel Manual that, for starters, will really please Insignia owners,” says Markus Sternberg, Executive Director Customer Experience Europe, describing interactive developments at Opel.
