Navigating the Android app

The Edmunds app for Android combines Edmunds pricing, research and inventory search to help you get the best deal — whether you're shopping for a new or used car. With this app you can configure a car to your requirements, get regional True Market Value®, find cars for sale at local dealers and look for the latest incentives.

Getting Started

To start researching any car, simply open the app and slide to select the Make, Model, and Year. You can also search by Brand, Type, or Feature by tapping “Vehicle Search” in the upper left area of the screen and selecting “Advanced Search.”

Once you have selected the car and pressed “Find” you may need to further select the vehicle by style (for example, if the car is available as either a sedan or a diesel sedan).

You will then be brought to the Vehicle Details screen, where you can scroll down and tap to enter various subcategories of information (For Sale Nearby, Pricing, Photos/Videos, Reviews, Features & Specs, Incentives & Rebates, Cost to Own, Safety Rating, Exterior Colors, etc.)

How do I find the value and pricing information for a car?

Pricing information for new AND used cars can be found within the Pricing subcategory. For new cars, you can select the trim level, packages, and options you want the car to have and you will be shown the Invoice, True Market Value, and MSRP for that specific configuration. For used cars, you can enter the mileage, condition, trim level, and options the car has and you’ll be shown the estimated Trade-In, Private Party Sale, and Dealer Retail values.

If you want to change the trim level, simply tap the the box displaying the trim level and select the desired trim.

How do I save cars in local inventory, as well as access my Saved cars and Recently Viewed searches?

Once you have selected a car for sale nearby by entering your ZIP code, you will be on the “Listing Details” screen. Each car listed has a Save/Heart button at the top. Press this to save the inventory listing.

To access either Saved (inventory listings) or Recently Viewed (regular searches), press the menu item next to the logo and select, “View History.”



Once you have selected “View History,” you can toggle between Recently Viewed and Saved. To delete a Saved car, press and hold the car you want to delete. The car will then be highlighted with a blue box. Select one or multiple cars and then press the trash can icon in the upper right corner to delete the car(s). Please note that Recently Viewed cars cannot be deleted at this time. The most recently viewed cars will be displayed, with older ones phasing out as you continue searching more models.



How do I find calculators to estimate finance or lease payments?

Tap the text next to the logo in the upper left area. It may say Vehicle Search, Vehicle Details, etc. This will allow you to select Calculators, as well as navigate to Vehicle Search, Advanced Search, Dealer Search, and View History.


How do I expand my search capabilities and learn more about the app and in general?

All of this information can be accessed on the Settings screen, which can be accessed by pressing the Menu key (next to the Home key) on your phone itself.
