iphone-appBENCHMARK used car values from Black Book are now available at the at the tip of your figures and on the move.

Compatible with iPhone, iTouch, iPad and Google Android smartphones, Black Book Mobile offers instant access to the industry’s benchmark trade values anywhere, without the need for internet access.

Offering all of the benefits of the standard printed Black Book, but with the additional flexibility of valuations at more mileage points, Black Book Mobile includes CAP Clean, Average, Below and Retail Valuations for used cars, benchmark valuations at six mileage points, and editorial market commentary by CAP’s Black Book Team

The app also includes new prices, CAP ID and insurance group, manufacturer, model, derivative selection menus, and access to CAP used car valuations on smartphone with no internet connection.

Black Book Mobile differs from CAP’s other mobile used car pricing application, Valuation Anywhere, in that all of the used car valuation data is downloaded straight onto the device once a month, at the same time as the release of the printed book and Windows version.

All data is therefore available without the need for any phone signal or internet connection.
