The following Buick vehicles are directly supported:
- 2003-2022 model year vehicles are included in the “Pick Your Vehicle“ database of the NVH app. This includes 255 unique vehicle profiles of the following models:
- Park Avenue
- 1980-2003 model years. All Buicks are supported in the “Unlisted Vehicle” section of the NVH app, but require the user to enter gear ratios and tire size(s). Gear ratio help is provided in the NVH app.
- 1979 and older model years are supported in the “Unlisted Vehicle” section of the NVH app, but require the user to provide their own gear ratios and tire size(s).
NOTICE: Electric Vehicles (EV) have fewer moving parts than a traditional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and transmission equipped vehicle. There is still a possibility of an EV experiencing a tire speed related vibration or an electric motor speed related vibration. The NVH app is great at detecting tire speed related vibrations, but detecting electric motor speed related vibrations has some limitations depending on the vehicle’s gear reduction gear ratio and the hardware in your phone or tablet**.
Although electric motor vibrations are very rare on vehicles, the electric motors in some electric vehicles rotate at a very high RPM at highway vehicle speeds. The ability of the NVH app to measure electric motor vibrations above 100 Hz (6000 RPM) can be limited by the iPhone hardware, not the app. Many Android phones/tablets have the ability to measure higher frequencies than 100 Hz. It is possible that electric motor vibrations will be detectable at lower vehicle speeds.
**Apple iOS devices with NVH version 4.0 or higher are electric vehicle ready. Android devices with NVH for Android version 3.3 will also be updated to 4.0 in 2022 to work with electric vehicles.
THE NVH APP IS HERE!
Turn your Phone or Tablet into an all-in-one Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) diagnostic tool! Purchase our new App to use the internal sensors of your Phone or Tablet to diagnose automotive and truck vibration problems. There are close to 300 individual vibration sources on a typical vehicle; the NVH App knows each one of them and can guide you through the entire diagnostic and repair procedures for each one of them.
