Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) June 7, 2010
GetAuto.com, a division of Dominion Dealer Solutions, has launched a mobile Web site that will allow in-market car shoppers to connect with dealers. Web browsers on mobile devices will automatically redirect to the new site located at http://m.getauto.com, eliminating the excessive content and loading time of the full Web site.
GetAuto.com’s new mobile Web site will provide car buyers access to over 700,000 vehicles and 6,000 dealers, and it will allow users to share vehicle information on popular social networking Web sites. Users may still access the full GetAuto.com Web site from their mobile devices via a link in the footer.
The new mobile GetAuto.com Web site, while more condensed, offers the same extensive car search capabilities as the full Web site. The new mobile technology allows users to customize their search for specific dealers or vehicles and also to search for dealers by zip code. Search results include multiple pictures, detailed listing data, email capability, and an advanced dealership mapping tool that integrates with the navigation and mapping function of most mobile devices.
GetAuto.com now also offers an upgraded iPhone application that detects iPhone usage. When iPhone users visit the GetAuto.com mobile Web site, they are automatically asked if they would like to download the upgraded GetAuto.com iPhone application. This application includes user-friendly navigation and car sorting options, as well as a loan calculator. The loan calculator allows the user to input interest rate, price, and down payment to calculate the monthly vehicle payment.
Suzanna McGrath, director of product development for Dominion Dealer Solutions, states, “the growth of the mobile Web has been exponential – and some studies predict that based on the current rate of change and adoption, the mobile Web will be bigger than desktop Internet use by 2015. Delivering a mobile-optimized GetAuto.com not only provides convenience and accessibility to in-market car shoppers but also creates a new marketplace for our dealers.”
GetAuto.com, created in 1996, is a pioneer in Web-based automotive marketing. GetAuto.com specializes in providing car shoppers with detailed consumer information on over 700,000 used and certified pre-owned cars available at dealerships nationwide.
