Leveling Device that "talks" to iPhone

Somewhere I saw a post about a device that you mount in your AS that, once calibrated, will communicate with your iPhone to let you know when the trailer is level.

I been searching and cannot find it again. Can someone direct me? Thanks!

Leveling Device that "talks" to iPhone

I just use the leveling feature of my iPhone.... just go into the compass app and swipe to the left. You get a left-right / front-back level.

I put my phone on top of the LP tank cover or the dinette table inside.

Works like a charm...

Great tip on the iPhone. Didn't know it would do that. I've been using s simple and free app called "sightLevel" works good.

I use one for my iPhone called Clinometer. There are several leveling apps out there, just check out the App Store.

I just put a 'torpedo' level on the freezer shelf of my fridge, then installed a little level on the tongue to match it. The AS actually sits a tad nose-high, but the fridge is level.

My Samsung I-phone has a bubble level that has both 'X' and 'Y' axis (axeees?) that shows up to eight decimal places. and it is showing "0" Deg. but the other numbers are continuously moving, indicating that my house is moving, a teensy amount..
(BOY, is it touchy!)

I use a simple 1' level I keep in the front storage compartment. Open the door put on the floor and presto.

This is the method I use per the instructions of a mechanic at Jackson Center.
I open the door and set the level on the door sill/threshold.

Hi, Hans, as another poster mentioned, I bet you are referring to the LevelMate Pro, discussed here a few months ago. I am interested too, but they've been out of stock for a month or two due to high demand. They have a notification list on their website to get an email when they are restocked.
Best,
Joe

I like the idea of the LevelMate because it gives you the readings remotely while your still in the driver's seat.
