CURT BetterWeigh Mobile Towing Scale with TowSense TechnologyPart Number: 51701
Not Vehicle Specific
BetterWeigh™ wirelessly links to your smartphone to display real-time vehicle and trailer weights. It easily plugs into any standard vehicle diagnostic port (OBD-II) under the steering wheel, and uses Bluetooth to connect to your Apple or Android phone. It then sends a live readout of all weights related to towing and hauling, including the gross weight of your vehicle and trailer, cargo, payload, tongue weight, pin weight and weight distribution. This streamlines the towing setup process for any vehicle-trailer combination and promotes maximum safety on the road. The compact, portable design also allows for easy transfer from one vehicle to another.

WHAT IS TOWSENSE™ TECHNOLOGY?
TowSense™ technology is a digital towing scale system. Using an accelerometer circuit, TowSense™ measures changes in the velocity and pitch of your vehicle. It uses this data to calculate weights associated with towing and hauling.
Armed with TowSense™ technology, the BetterWeigh™ tongue weight scale wirelessly connects to your Apple or Android phone to display the weight of the vehicle, trailer, cargo / payload, tongue weight, pin weight, weight distribution and trailer brake gain.
How It Works
CURT BetterWeigh - How It Works Equation
Newton’s Second Law of Motion states that force equals mass multiplied by acceleration. Force is determined by measuring slip across the torque converter as the vehicle accelerates. Acceleration is determined by an onboard accelerometer.
BetterWeigh™ uses these properties to calculate the weight of your vehicle, trailer, cargo and more. With the unit calibrated, it can measure real-time weight while driving or at a standstill, and at any upward or downward grade.
