CURT (51180): Echo Wireless Brake Control

Plugging easily into your vehicle and connecting wirelessly to your smartphone, the Bluetooth-enabled Echo wireless brake control from CURT lets you monitor and control all your trailer brake activity right from your device via a customizable app (iOS or Android)—no need for extra modules, controls, buttons, or knobs.

Echo goes onto your vehicle with ease: just plug it into your standard 7-way RV blade socket. This simple interface allows you to easily transfer it between vehicles and use it with multiple compatible trailers, making it ideal for commercial fleets.

This patent-pending, made-in-the-USA wireless brake control features weather-resistant housing consisting of a fully potted enclosure, allowing it to operate flawlessly through rain, snow, mud, and more. It also includes a soft locking connector tab that reduces vibration and improves connectivity. Compatible with ABS brakes and cruise control and backed by CURT’s limited lifetime warranty.
