Using state-of-the-art digital imaging technology in concert with industry-standard
specifications for serpentine belts, PIC Gauge determines the degree of rib wear
detected on a belt. Material loss is analyzed and returns one of three belt results:
Within Specification (green), Wear Detected (yellow) or Replace Belt (red). Belt wear
measurements can be captured from any automotive K-section serpentine belt.
PIC Gauge utilizes a photograph taken with the Smartphone’s built-in camera,
and is analyzed by patent-pending software. The App is simple to use, and the
results are immediate. Results can also be stored and retrieved for future reference.
The PIC Belt Wear Gauge is the first digital tool available designed to be used by
professional technicians, service writers, and do-it-yourselfers.

It can be better
I finally got it to work, taking the pic just right is a pain, it's not really practical when the belt is on the vehicle. The pic has to be straight, if you have an angle of any kind it won't accept the pic. Taking the belt off is not an option when your doing Maint. Service and need to have the vehicle done in a timely manner. I think if they can make it possible to manually rotate, not just rotate 90 degrees, to line up the pic to their gauge it would be a great improvement. That would speed up the process and make my job easier to show my customers their belt needs replacing.
Took very clear pictures of belt, in landscape mode, with good lighting and the app does not accept the image. Followed the instructions as stated. It either doesn't recognize a belt or it does and then says error on the next step. The app just crashes now even after powering off phone. Deleting...
Wouldn't show belt in picture
I would love to know if this app actually works however every time I go to use it the app recognizes the belt but when it goes to the zoom/reposition part it is just a solid gray line that is not the picture of the belt
