  Vehicle System Reports

Performing a pre-repair scan can find hidden issues and make sure customers are aware of problems before any work is done, while a post-repair scan confirms for them that repairs and services were completed properly.

A pre-scan report, done prior to work taking place, will highlight all issues to your customers and show the need for further investigation, while a post-scan report after the work is complete will show that the repairs were completed properly.

The latest Snap-on diagnostic software update makes that process even easier by linking closely to the Snap-on cloud system.

Automatic uploading to the Snap-on cloud of Vehicle System Reports generated for pre- and post-scans can be carried out on the ZEUS™, TRITON-D8™, APOLLO-D8™, VERUS® Edge, MODIS Edge™ and SOLUS Edge™ platforms.

From the Snap-on cloud, they can be printed, e-mailed or sent via text to help strengthen customer confidence in your services - and they can be used to fulfill mandates by manufacturers and insurance companies for pre- and post-collision work as well.

  Secure Vehicle Gateway

The autumn 2020 diagnostic software upgrade from Snap-on brings an unparalleled breadth and depth of vehicle and system coverage.

One of the biggest innovations comes in the form of Secure Vehicle Gateway™ - a new solution from Snap-on to support technicians working on vehicles that have restricted access.

The system has been authorised by FIAT Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) for direct access to the manufacturer’s vehicle gateway module from Snap-on scan tools.

Secure gateway modules are being put in place by manufacturers to ward off unauthorised access and potential cyber-attacks.

The presence of these modules means that access to certain diagnostic functions on the vehicle requires registration and authentication through an approved scan tool.

The Snap-on Secure Vehicle Gateway is designed to help navigate through this new process on 2017 and newer FCA models.

  Intelligent Diagnostics

Intelligent Diagnostics provides you with the fastest path to complete the job.

What makes it unique is that it anticipates your next move and guides you through every step to find the solution by displaying only information relevant to the specific vehicle and fault code.

Not only is Intelligent Diagnostics comprehensive enough to provide all the diagnostic and repair tips you need, it’s also smart enough to skip the ones you don’t. 

"Smart Data" from Intelligent Diagnostics automatically configures the display on your applicable platform to show vehicle data parameters (PID) relevant to the fault code, while non-related data parameters are filtered out to save you time.

It also highlights vehicle data that is out of expected range. 

Access to Intelligent Diagnostics is available on the Snap-on ZEUS®, TRITON-D8® and APOLLO-D8™ platforms and requires an applicable software agreement, which more than pays for itself through its depth of information and time savings.
