Upgrading to the new diagnostic software release from Snap-on will see technicians benefit from improved productivity and more vehicle coverage than ever before – preparing them to take on the toughest jobs with confidence.
A substantial amount of the new coverage is relating to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to meet the ever-growing requirements for advanced repairs and calibrations on modern vehicles.
Examples of the additions include adaptive cruise control modules on several Alfa Romeo and Fiat models, blind spot monitoring for Hyundai, Land Rover and Mazda variants, Vauxhall Mokka parking assistance and lane keep assist on several Renault and Lexus vehicles.
The new ADAS coverage is on top of the wide range of new vehicles and systems added in the latest upgrade, which is released to customers in early April.

The Snap-on Cloud
The upgrade allows technicians to automatically upload pre-scan and post-scan vehicle system reports for fast access and sharing from computers and mobile devices via the Snap-on cloud at altusdrive.com.
This functionality is newly- added for the Snap-on ZEUS™ and VERUS® Edge platforms, while it is also available on the MODIS Edge™ and SOLUS Edge™ tools.
ZEUS and VERUS Edge users will also benefit from improved management and storage of vehicle photos and diagnostic screenshots, along with faster access on their units to recently-scanned vehicles.
Users of the ZEUS, SOLUS Edge, MODIS Edge and Ultra platforms, and the VERUS and VERDICT® family of products, also get exclusive access to SureTrack™ with the upgrade.
This comprehensive source of expert knowledge helps technicians improve diagnostic accuracy and reduce repair time with diagnostic experience, repair timesavers and verified parts replacement records taken from millions of successful repair orders.
