Suzuki Develops Smartphone Application
for Acquiring Outboard Engine Information


Suzuki Motor Corporation has developed a free-of-charge*1 smartphone application called the Suzuki Diagnostic System Mobile (SDSM), which enables easy acquirement of outboard engine information for the user.

SDSM is an application specially designed for outboards, which is aimed to enhance customer satisfaction in after-sales service. Upon the maintenance of an outboard, SDSM lets the user read engine information to a smartphone, just by reading the QR Codes displayed on the Multi-function Gauge (MFG)*2. In addition, by attaching the engine information to an e-mail and sending it to a service staff, diagnosis by a service staff using special tools upon arrival would no longer be needed. This enables quicker after-sales service.

SDSM is applicable to all fuel-injected Suzuki outboards that can be installed with MFG, and its release has started for iPhone (timing varies between areas). Release for AndroidTM is also scheduled, subsequently.
