DealerTrack, Inc., a subsidiary of DealerTrack Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRAK), a leading provider of on-demand software and data solutions for the U.S. automotive retail industry, today announced that its DealerTrack Mobile AAX solution is now available for use on smartphones using the Android 2.0 operating system.

The DealerTrack Mobile AAX solution is powered and delivered by Laser Appraiser, LLC, the industry's leading wireless automotive valuation system.

"As dealers increasingly strive to increase their efficiency, DealerTrack continues to innovate and deliver cutting-edge technologies," said Bridget Townsend, general manager of DealerTrack AAX.  "Dealers can now run DealerTrack Mobile AAX on Android smartphones - one of the best-selling smartphone operating systems in the U.S. - and start realizing a range of benefits including easier and faster access to used-car valuations, wholesale auction Manheim Market Reports (MMR) as well as access to vehicle history and appraisal information right on the dealership lot or in the lanes at wholesale auctions."
