Use CYTK Smart Search™ to Capture a VIN and Perform Vehicle-Specific Automotive Repair Searches

Wouldn’t it be great to have access on your mobile device to vehicle-specific automotive repair content based on a VIN lookup? 

Tired of doing generic content searches or having to write down a 17-digit VIN and manually entering it into a search engine?

Imagine if you could use your mobile device to capture a picture of the VIN, load a vehicle and then perform a vehicle-specific search to targeted repair content. Well, that day has come! CYTK Smart Search™ allows you to load a specific vehicle through VIN Capture and then provides access to OEM content that includes vehicle specifications, service and DTC procedures, wiring diagrams, parts & labor estimates, and much more.
