Hymer Connect App: The first smart ecosystem for the connected motorhome
Hymer GmbH & Co. KG is taking a huge leap forwards in terms of networking within the motorhome industry. With a new, smart ecosystem, the premium manufacturer from Bad Waldsee is combining the controls for numerous vehicle components as well as the display of vehicle information in one single digital platform. The Hymer Connect App in conjunction with a central control unit inside the vehicle is currently the first connectivity solution of its kind for the connected motorhome. It will be available as standard in all Hymer B-Class MasterLine models from the 2022 model year onwards and, from February 2021 onwards, it can be retrofitted in selected B-ML models from the 2020 model year onwards as well. Complementary connected components and smart features for the app will follow.
Hymer continues to refrain from participating in major events
Hymer GmbH & Co. KG has taken the decision to cancel trade fairs and major events until further notice. In the view of the long-standing company, the current infection rate and the health risks associated do not allow for participation. However, to ensure that the company is still able to engage with its customers in a meaningful yet safe manner, Hymer is relying on digital solutions, such as new and innovative forms of online presentation in conjunction with expert advice provided on site at the dealerships. Both of these initiatives have proven to be extremely successful in recent months.
