AAA has introduced a mobile app for Android that allows its members to request roadside assistance.
The free Android app allows AAA members to request roadside assistance without having to place a call. The app uses the phone's GPS to send the location of the user to AAA Roadside Assistance.
“AAA is committed to developing new and innovative ways to better meet the needs of its members,” said Marshall L. Doney, vice president, AAA Automotive and Financial Services.
“Breakdowns are never a pleasant experience, but mobile offerings such as the AAA Roadside app can help AAA locate members quickly and be prepared to try to resolve their car trouble on-site so we can get them back on the go.”
AAA members can register up to eight vehicles to their app profile. The AAA Roadside app launched in 2009 with an iPhone-compatible version that has been downloaded a half million times.
