New Diagnostic Software Upgrade Saves Time In The Workshop

The new update to Snap-on’s diagnostic platform software saves time in the workshop and puts new information for thousands of vehicles and systems into the hands of technicians.

As well as 2016 model year updates for many manufacturers, software version 17.4 brings enhancements and innovations designed to increase productivity.

Highlights of the Update

Among the many highlights are:

  • 2016 model year updates: Alfa/Fiat/Lancia; Mini/BMW; Dacia; Honda; Hyundai; Kia; Land Rover; Mitsubishi; Nissan; Vauxhall; Renault; Smart; Volvo
  • Two new BMW/Mini models added: BMW Luxury 7 Series with 9 engines and the Mini Cabrio Convertible with 4 engines
