Freightliner updates Smart Source

July 27, 2020
App now features more personalization options, additional resources intended to improve user experience for drivers

Freightliner recently updated its Smart Source app with a new design, personalized notification options and enhanced product support features designed to provide an improved user experience for drivers.

The Smart Source app helps drivers stay connected with Freightliner for up-to-date product news, training videos and support information. The new features expand on the app’s versatility and help drivers quickly find the information they need to efficiently operate their Freightliner truck, the manufacturer said.    

“Drivers are more connected than ever before and we are dedicated to providing them with useful information about their vehicles delivered in a familiar and easily accessible format via their mobile device,” said Kelly Gedert, vice president for on-highway market development at Daimler Trucks North America.

In addition to a more intuitive design, updates to Smart Source include:

  • Expanded library of VIN-based training videos, which allow users to enter the last 6 of their VIN directly into the app to access product training relevant to their specific truck.
  • Links to online driver and maintenance manuals by model.
  • Quick access to the Freightliner Roadside Assistance Program. 
  • Optional push notifications so users can be instantly alerted when new training videos, news, or additional product information is added.

The free app is available for compatible devices at the Apple App store or Google Play store.
