Instead of sitting in your truck confused, trying to google how to do something, or flipping through a manual, you can have instant answers to all your questions. Simply point your phone and different places in and around your truck, and the app will explain them to you. 

Once you point your camera at different items such as the paddle shifters on the steering wheel or Drive Modes, information about that part will open. The app uses augmented reality technology to understand what you’re looking at.

For example, if you point your camera on the engine bay under the hood, you’ll receive information about the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that pumps out 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. 

What can the Ram 1500 TRX Know & Go app do? 

According to AutoBlog and information released by FCA, the app can provide information about the drive mode switch, off-roading information, paddle shifters, tire pressure monitoring system, and more. It will pull up information from the owner’s manual to help you find the answers you’re looking for.

The app will also recommend how-to videos and share information about Ram 1500 TRX features that you may not know about. This could help enlighten people about the advanced technology they’re sitting behind the wheel of. But this could depend on the owner downloading the app and using it correctly. 

FCA is rolling out the Know & Go app for the Ram 1500 TRX fist, but we could expect to see it work with other vehicles soon. This probably should be used in place of reading the owner’s manual for the Ram 1500 TRX when you first receive it. However, it can help you access certain information pretty quickly.
