Empower On with New Snap-on Software Upgrade 18.2

Professional service technicians empower themselves when they update their diagnostic tools to the newest Snap-on® software, Upgrade 18.2.

Smarter than ever with expanded OEM-specific coverage, expert tips, guided analysis, general repair, collision repair and more, Software Upgrade 18.2 gives technicians the assurance that they can do the job right, the first time. 

“For every software upgrade skipped, service technicians risk not having coverage for even common repairs brought into their shops,” said Leian Wunderlich, software program manager, Snap-on Diagnostics.

“With regular software upgrades, technicians will make their tool ‘like new’ again.

“Not only will they get the latest software coverage, but they’ll also get coverage from previous upgrades so they’ll be ready for most any vehicle that rolls into their bay.” 

The latest update for Snap-on diagnostic platforms includes more than 400,000 codes, data, tests and tips for technicians to handle systems such as diesel, TPMS, electric steering and hybrid power systems with the most comprehensive OEM-specific coverage for 100 vehicle systems and 49 manufacturers.

New 2018 model year coverage has been added for Acura®, Chrysler®, Dodge®, Ford®, Honda®, Hyundai®, Jeep®, Kia®, Lincoln®, Mitsubishi® and Ram®, with optional European coverage available for Alfa Romeo®, Audi®, FIAT®, Jaguar®, Mercedes-Benz®, Porsche® and Volkswagen®.
