CURT │Echo™ Brake Control Feature and Benefit


The Echo™ brake control is truly a brake control for the modern age. It easily plugs into your vehicle and wirelessly connects to your smartphone, allowing you to control and monitor all trailer brake activity right from your own device. It comes with a customizable app for Apple or Android phones, a portable design to easily switch between vehicles and a potted enclosure for lasting weather resistance.

Most things in this day and age can be accessed or controlled from a smartphone. With the Echo™ that includes your trailer brakes! It features a Bluetooth-enabled system that connects right to your device. There is no need for extra modules, controls, buttons or knobs. Your smartphone becomes the brake control monitoring unit in the cab of your vehicle.

The Echo™ brake control has one of the easiest installations in the industry. Very simply, it plugs into the standard 7-way RV blade socket at the rear of your vehicle and provides a socket to plug in the trailer harness. It Ts into the connection, going between the vehicle and trailer plugs, and it is completely non-invasive. It also features automatic calibration to help eliminate setup requirements.

The Echo™ trailer brake controller comes with a custom-designed app that can be downloaded for IOS or Android OS phones. With this app, the wireless brake control is able to connect to your smartphone and display brake control settings and activity. It also sends you status updates for your towing setup.

With its compact design and simple, plug-and-play installation, the Echo™ is designed to be extremely portable. You can easily transfer it between vehicles and use it with multiple trailers, as long as the vehicle and trailer have a 7-way RV blade connector. The Echo™ app allows you to store up to five different user profiles and unlimited trailer profiles.

Because the Echo™ trailer brake controller is made to be outside the vehicle, we engineered it for maximum weather resistance. It is constructed with a potted enclosure, meaning the inside of the unit is filled with an epoxy resin that seals off the internal components from moisture and the elements. This ensures long-lasting operation in spite of rain, snow, dirt, mud and more. The Echo™ also has silicone-coated ports for connecting to the 7-way RV blade plugs. This coating helps reduce vibrations and helps seal off the connection from rust and corrosion.

The Echo™ brake control is compatible with two to four trailer brakes (one to two axles) and can be used with low-voltage or PWM wiring systems. It is also compatible with cruise control and ABS brakes and has built-in reverse-polarity protection and short-circuit protection. The Echo™ comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Above & Beyond | Tested. Proven. Safe. | CURT MFG


When a customer buys a hitch from CURT, it’s a promise that the hitch is going to perform as expected according to its rated use. That is why each product goes through rigorous strength and durability tests to make sure that the promise is kept.

CURT’s engineering and testing facility, located just outside of Detroit, MI plays a large role in the production of the highest-quality towing products on the market today.

From conventional trailer hitches to 5th wheel hitches to ball mounts, each product is tested in-house. Our Wixom testing facility gives us the opportunity to test each and every product to the most stringent standards. CURT performs a variety of tests, including fatigue, weight carrying and weight distribution. We also have capabilities to do real-time, on-vehicle, three-axis testing, similar to the European CARLOS.TC test. Every hitch that goes through CURT’s testing facility passes SAE J684, J2638, or J647 protocols.

State-of-the-art testing abilities ensures we provide a superior, well-designed product that works right the first time. This concept extends beyond trailer hitches. CURT uses industry-leading equipment to design, refine, and develop its electrical products using thermal test chambers, insulation testers, and load-pull testing for terminals and connectors.

These processes ensure product safety and reliability above and beyond what typical after-market products go through.

For everything from passenger cars and vans to full-size pickups and SUVs, CURT is 'The First Name in Towing Products.'
