Empower Yourself With The Latest Snap-on Diagnostic Software Release

The upcoming diagnostic software upgrade from Snap-on® brings brand new enhancements to technicians’ platforms in order to improve their working lives.

One of the big innovations is the addition of Vehicle System Reports with the Snap-on Cloud – which is designed to make pre- and post-scan reporting even easier.

The all-new file-sharing system has expanded functionality with the introduction of the latest upgrade, which will be available early in October.

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.

With the new release, the Vehicle System Report for pre- and post-scans on MODIS Edge™ and SOLUS Edge™ can be automatically uploaded to the Snap-on Cloud.

From there, the document can be printed, e-mailed or sent via text to help strengthen customer confidence in a workshop’s services – and it can be used to fulfil mandates by manufacturers and insurance companies for pre- and post-collision work as well.

New Features

Alongside the integration with ALTUS are a series of new features on the ZEUS™ and VERUS® Edge car diagnostic tools.

These include an improved system menu, which groups together vehicle systems by category for quick and easy reference; a useful backup reminder alert to prompt users to protect their data; and a scanner module quick connect screen should the technician have tried to continue without connecting the scan module to the vehicle.

And then there’s the new coverage for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) included in the latest upgrade.

Among many new systems featured are the all around vision camera for 17 different BMW models; extensive coverage for the VW Crafter, which is a new vehicle included in the update; and the electronic parking brake and lane departure warning for several Mazda models.

These new additions are on top of the wide array of new vehicle and system coverage that Snap-on customers come to expect from the twice-yearly updates.
