HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire - December 2, 2009) - National car care leader AAMCO® today released a mobile application that gives customers access to diagnostic tools and up-to-the-mile maintenance information at the touch of a button. The iGAAUGE, among the first of its kind for a national car care leader, is available for the iPhone® and iPod touch® and can be downloaded from the iTunes® App Store. It is free of charge for a limited time.

iGAAUGE provides a car's maintenance schedule, troubleshoots car issues, provides traffic updates, locates the nearest gas station, contacts roadside assistance and connects users to the nearest AAMCO. Special AAMCO offers and coupons will be made available exclusively to iGAAUGE users via the application.

"AAMCO's commitment to our customers is about expert service, value, and the peace of mind that comes with having a car care specialist to rely on," said Mike Ganjei, president, National AAMCO Dealers Association. "iGAAUGE lets our customers take that peace of mind with them wherever they go by putting our expert technicians right on their phones. We want our customers to be able to get information on the road and have the ability to quickly connect to AAMCO when they need to. iGAAUGE delivers all that and more."

iGAAUGE features include:

-- Troubleshooting Diagnostic Tool that walks drivers through a series of questions to identify the cause of dashboard indicator lights, unusual sounds or other causes of car trouble.
