I'm wondering how it's supposed to determine the tongue weight.

I seriously looking at ordering one to see if it actually does as advertised. Being Amazon Prime, I can always return it.

Okay, I got the app. I put my cellphone on the ground, and drove my truck over it. Problem is, with the truck on top of the cellphone, I can't see the screen.

Did you put the cell phone on the ground face down? That could be why you couldn't read it.

I think 20 bucks at a scale is a better use of $$ and more accurate.

I still do not understand how a phone app can weight a trailer? To get the weight don't you have to some kind of downward pressure?

It looks like a “puck” that has a load cell and talks to your phone via BlueTooth. I guess if you want all your weights you do it one tire at a time, 3 times for a bumper pull..
Might be handy if you like to weigh before each trip but I haven’t spent anywhere near $100 at the CAT Scale yet.

It has nothing to do with weight. They use the tow vehicle engine and transmission sensors read through a unit plugged into the OBD port and then use Bluetooth to communicate with your smartphone. The app compares your TV readings against the company's 'map' to determine (IMO, estimate) weights.

I believe they use changes in the TV angles, hitched and not hitched, to determine the tongue weight.

and read answers to the questions.
