Proportional Braking

With a proportional brake controller, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking, or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer brakes every time - proportional controllers are able to adapt to every braking situation differently. So, if you slam on the brakes in your truck, your trailer brakes will activate with that same extreme intensity. And if you merely slow down as you approach a red light, your trailer will gradually brake in the same manner.


Once the Echo is mounted, it will sense - via an internal 3-axis accelerometer - how your tow vehicle brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow vehicle as you brake by signaling the controller to send out enough power to your trailer brakes so that they are activated with an intensity that matches. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Installation Accessories

For even easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter (sold separately) is available for most newer trucks and SUVs. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your vehicle, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: If a custom brake control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, a 30-amp circuit breaker (sold separately) may be required for installation.

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (956 Customer Reviews)

by:

As first time truck and pop-up trailer users, we initially purchased a cheaper brake controller that required drilling the dash. This is a new truck, so we decided to switch and spend more for the Bluetooth. etrailer was easy to work with for a return, and the Bluetooth brake controller is fantastic - so easy to use with our new trailer!




by:

This controller took me literally 15 minutes to install with the required pigtail and my Rubicon with factory towing package installed. When I initially downloaded the app and connected, it actuated and locked the brakes. I simple deleted the app and reinstalled and everything worked normal.




by:

Installed the controller under the dash out of the way. Downloading and setting up the app was easy. I have set a profile for my trailer loaded and empty. This is a nice feature.
The app stays open while driving, so the manual brake button is visible, and easy to access, if needed.

The instructions are a little confusing. Curt provided an instruction manual that leads you to believe you need additional components to complete the install. It’s a general instruction book and needs to clarify the diagrams aren’t necessarily accurate when buying specific components.

Very easy plug and play install. Worked flawlessly with app.

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


I like the fact that I have a proportional brake controller I can stick in my glove box. It doesn’t have to be hardwired to the vehicle which is nice because I can use it on different applications. This one is definitely a plus over time delay brake controllers.

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


I used the wiring harness and 7/4 pin receiver from etrailer to wire my 2021 Toyota Highlander to use the Curt Echo. It worked flawlessly the first time. So far I haven’t needed to make adjustments from the original settings for my R-Pod 180 travel trailer. I do wish there were better instructions for initial set up.

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


The only reason I didn’t give this product a higher rating is we found out, after the fact, that the controller doesn’t allow a charge to our RV battery like a regular plug does. That should be made ;more apparent in the specs of this product. While there can be rewriting workarounds to this, those weren’t satisfactory options so it is causing us to move to a different brake controller. The operation of this controller, otherwise, is excellent. Simple to use, simple to hook to your phone and worked great with our trailer. Unfortunately we need our battery to be working and charging as we travel since we go “off grid” often. If that’s not a concern of yours, this is an excellent choice.


Comments
We have researched this question with Curt. They advised that the circuit is only rated for 30 amp peak. The constant amp rating is lower but they am not sure what that number is at this time. With the potential of overheating the unit while charging the battery they would not recommend it.

I have been using this brake controller on 9 trips. The support staff from Curt helped me fine tune the brake sensitivity on my first trip and it has worked very well. After the third trip, I added the rubber strap to secure the controller to the trailer 7-way plug-in and it has been flawless.


Comments
I am very happy with the Curt Echo Brake Controller. I recently had to make adjustments to the brake sensitivity in response to adjusting the brake pads and I found that the adjustments on the smartphone app were easy to make. I am very pleased with the product.

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


My daughter ordered a Curt Echo Wireless Brake Controler from another dealer and it appeared to be faulty. I contacted eTrailer to confirm my diagnosis and they were very helpful and confirmed that the controller was faulty. As we were in a time crunch to get the trailer brakes operational, I ordered a new controller from eTrailer and it worked as advertized - easy setup and control plus three families can use the same controller instead of having to have 3 separate controllers. Only issue is that it took over a week for them to ship the controller even though they showed it in stock when I ordered it.


Comments
My daughter used the controller to tow her LARGE pop-up trailer nearly 4000 miles last summer and I used the same controller to pull a separate large trailer 150 miles across a hilly interstate to help a friend move. In both cases it worked perfectly.

I used this kit to convert an OEM 4-way flat connector to a 7-way on a 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser. Easy, straightforward install. Only issue I ran into was that I had to elongate the kit mounting bracket holes to use the existing bracket holes. etrailer provides excellent written and video installation instructions.

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


I needed a trailer brake controller for my 2017 Honda Pilot (in a hurry) and I did not want to drill anything into my dash, as I knew that I might not use my 2017 Honda Pilot to tow anything every again. I knew NOTHING about towing or installing/using a trailer brake controller, but I did know that my 2017 Honda Pilot was factory wired with a 7 pin connector and hitch receiver, so I ordered the Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake controller for the two axle travel trailer I was going to tow. I got the device, opened the packaging, followed the simple instructions, paired the device with my iPhone, and connected the travel trailer to my 2017 Honda Pilot...all in under 5 minutes!!! Everything worked PERFECTLY and I drove off to start my 160 mile trip. This device was FANTASTIC and I can't imagine anyone not using this instead of the ones in the dash. Also, I now have this device to use with the truck I plan to purchase to tow the travel trailer on a regular basis, which means I can buy a truck without the built in trailer brake controller! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT, WITH NO RESERVATIONS!

fantastic product! still working a year later and I use it all the time.

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


I purchased this product for use with my travel trailer(the folks at etrailer shipped it really fast) as my new truck didn't come with one and I didn't want the hassle of installing a wired one, and wasn't wild about having something else under the dash. The setup was very easy. The app downloaded quickly on my phone and paired immediately with the controller. I double checked that the braking function on the phone was actuating the trailer brakes (it was). I haven't pulled my trailer with it yet,but my initial impressions are that it is good quality, is easy to use, and so far has done everything as advertised. I woulf recommend watching etrailer's instructional video on YYoutube.

Very well.

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


We purchased a new Hyundai Palisade that had an OEM hitch and “prewiring” for trailering. Unfortunately this prewiring was only a 4-pin connector so it did not include wiring for controlling electric trailer brakes. We finally convinced the dealer to install a 7-pin connector - if we obtained the appropriate parts from etrailer.com. George J. at etrailer.com recommended this kit (#ETBC7) as the parts we needed for conversion to a 7-pin connector. The car dealer’s service department installed the 7-pin connector while we waited for 5 hours. With a wireless brake controller, everything now works properly for towing our Casita.

This photo shows the installation after I modified it so that the connector was above the hitch instead of below it (too close to the ground). I had to fashion a bracket for appropriate spacing and I left several bolts that attach it to the etrailer.com bracket (oops).

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


Started out ok by 4th time towing trailer brakes would lock up whenever touch the brakes. It is not a problem with settings tried adjusting while drive no change. After uninstalling and reinstalling app and trying everything I could think of it kept happening. Brand new trailer by the way. I checked the connection terminal no corrosion. decided to close the terminal a bit more to make a tighter connection. The one time I hauled my trailer after doing that it seemed ok Ill know more next time I haul. I tow about every other week in the summer. I am this close to buying a hardwired kit. 1 more lock up of the trailer brakes and im throwing this out NOT Safe.


Comments
You mentioned that you were trying to use it again and would see if the brakes locked up. I wanted to see if it is working correctly for you now?

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


Overall thoughts can be summed up as, “Not overly wowed for the price.” For 1, the rubber strap was extremely cheap and broke the 1st use. This is an issue because the controller itself fits fairly loosely in ALL my receivers which is another issue as well. All 3 receivers are new and all 3 are name brands, 1 being Curt, so I can only conclude it’s the controller itself. For the price there is absolutely 0 reason Curt could not spring on a quality strap or assure a snug fit in at least their own receivers. If I had not been paranoid of it falling out to begin with and added extra bungies I would have lost $xxx controller 1/2 way to the destination. 2nd because it fits loosely it can lose connection periodically when going over a bump, sharp turn, and etc. You know those times when you might want to actually have a manual control? 3rd the manual override brake is finicky at best. It may or may not engage when hit the 1st time. It may or may not engage quickly. It may or may not engage at all. Lastly the blue tooth signal could be stronger. If not moving it does okay in the front seat of the burb but if I’m walking around the trailer or ect it loses the signal, which for me isn’t much of an issue but would certainly be if I was using in an RV since it will lose signal at around the 12ft mark. All in all I doubt I would repurchase it for the current price, vs going through the hassle of wiring in a designated controller to whichever vehicle I plan on towing it with. Couple that with the fact you MUST remove at every stop due to the design, or risk someone who actually knows what it is walking off with your $xxx controller. This is also something that could have been addressed rather cheaply for the price of the controller by something as simple as a metal loop and wire setup, but I was aware of this issue before purchase. The concept is nice, and it does broaden the options on who I could let tow my trailer if I needed to borrow a vehicle or etc if mine went down on the side of the road, and not everyone has the know how to wire their own controller so price could be negligible for them. Time will tell if it pays itself off for us, curt warranties it for life so it may very well pay itself off in time, but in my mind for most folks there are better and cheaper options. All I can say is do your research and weigh the cons and pros before you buy. Seems like a slightly below average functioning controller at the cost of considerably easier to install with multi vehicle use. Works okay for me, but I'm hauling a camper used a few times a year. I certainly wouldn't want to be someone who hauls regularly and constantly be connecting and disconnecting at all my stops. So as I said, it’s not junk but its also not the “wow” I expected from the reviews I read and price I paid.


Comments
This does have a limited lifetime warranty but the strap is not included in that as it is a wear and tear part. You can pick up a replacement strap here at etrailer: item # C28HR

. Also, the manual output can be activated by pressing and holding the orange button in the app. If you simply tap the button, it will not work properly. Make sure that you are holding down the button for as long as a duration you need.

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


This is a good product. It was easy to use though I probably should have spent more time adjusting the settings before I set out on my initial trip. My only real complaint is that it didn't seem to want to firmly plug in to the 7 pin receptacle on the back of my SUV. I wasn't comfortable with the little rubber strap that they supplied so I gave it a few wraps of electrical tape to hold it and had no problems. Otherwise, it did what it was supposed to do; much easier than trying to tap into the brake light of whatever vehicle you want to use it with.

Works great, I love it!

Review from a similar Echo in Trailer Brake Controller


I placed an order on 5/8. I heard nothing until mid-May when I got a notification that my package would arrive on 6/8. A full month for items listed as in stock. I reached out and after a 35-minute hold I was told that they didn’t know why it was taking that long but that it would be expedited. A portion of my order arrived and when I questioned why only part of it arrived I was met with “are you sure?” After some prodding I told George and Vicki that I absolutely needed the missing piece (a 7 to flat 4 adapter) by 6/6 because I was towing a 4-pin trailer on 6/7. They assured me it would arrive in time. It did not. It arrived on 6/9, which is over a month from the date of order. Fortunately I anticipated that this would not be handled adequately and ordered a converter off [online] which arrived before the etrailer order despite being placed after it. Poor communication throughout the order, lackluster customer service, unacceptably long fulfillment and shipping times, insufficient follow up when etrailer knew they had made a mistake, and an overall unpleasant experience. etrailer has lost my business for future orders.

I sincerely apologize for the miscommunication on your order. This is not how we want to handle communication on the orders and we are working to improve our response time.

My Toyota Highlander 2020 can’t be adapted to add a wired brake controller (unlike the Toyota truck). However, the wireless brake controller works well and easy to configure. My daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids borrow my trailer and use the same wireless brake controller (so no need to buy 2 brake controllers for 2 vehicles). Easy to install on my iPhone and configure and easy to test with manual brake controls.


Comments
A year later and the wireless brake controller is still performing well and loaning it to family members for their trailering is easy too. I get worried that the controller might fall off so I use a zip tie to help secure it to my vehicle.

  • Does Curt Echo Need The App and Wifi to Function
    You will need to pair the Curt Echo Under-Dash Trailer Brake Controller - Bluetooth - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional # C27JR for the initial setup but once that is done it will operate on the previous settings even if you didn't have your phone with you. You will want the app to be open for use of the manual override, or if you need to adjust the braking power. This does not require wifi, it uses Bluetooth to connect.
