Previous Vehicles & Data

  • Vehicle History
  • View Saved Data
  • Delete Saved Data

Welcome to Snap-on Training Solutions. This module is designed to help you get the most out of your SOLUS Ultra diagnostic tool, and covers the use of the previous vehicle ID list and the saved data function.

The Previous Vehicles and Data functions help you to quickly configure the diagnostic tool to the identity of a previously tested vehicle, and to access your saved data files. From the home screen, select the Previous Vehicles and Data icon.

A menu of options opens. Here are our choices - Vehicle History, View Saved Data‚ Delete Saved Data. Let’s select Vehicle History.

Previous Vehicle ID

The tool saves the identification of the last twenty-five vehicles tested, so there is no need to go through the complete vehicle identification sequence when performing an after-repair test. Let’s select the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Once there are twenty five vehicles saved, the oldest vehicle record is deleted when a new vehicle is identified. We can now select continue to confirm the vehicle we have chosen from the history list.

The menu shows us the functions available in the tool for the selected vehicle. In this example, we see the scanner main menu. Now select the back icon to return to the Vehicle History.

Scroll down to see more options or select a different vehicle. Let’s select the 2008 Honda Civic.

Select OK to confirm the vehicle selection

We see the complete system list for this vehicle.

Simply select the system you want to access codes, live data, functional tests or troubleshooter tips.

View Saved Data

Selecting View Saved Data opens a list of all the data movies and screen images that are stored in memory.

Saved files are listed in chronological order by the date and time they were created with the most recent files at the top of the list. The vehicle ID is also shown in the menu. And the file name is on the right.

ShopStream Connect™ Download Available at: diagnostics.snapon.com/ssc

Saved files can be opened directly on the diagnostic tool. Or they can be viewed on a computer using the ShopStream Connect application available at no charge.

Screen capture images have extension BMP, JPG or PNG.

Saved Scanner movies have filename extension SCM. Let’s select a scanner data file from the list of saved files.

Screen 12 - The file opens and displays saved data. The toolbar arrow buttons are used to step forward and backward.

Delete Saved Data

Data files and screen images are saved on the removable micro SD card in the tool. The tool software is also on this card. To delete a saved file select Delete Saved Data from the menu.

Select the check box for one or more files you wish to delete. Or use the Select/Deselect All icon to clear all saved data files at once. Select the delete icon.

Then select OK to confirm the deletion. Or select cancel to exit without deleting the files.
