Bosch Updates ADS Tool Coverage Across Vehicle Brands

The added coverage for 2022 includes Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Hyundai with updated functionality and optimizations, Bosch says.

Bosch announced the release of its 4.21 software update for the ADS and ADS X series tools. The update will include more 2022 model year coverage from foreign and domestic brands and added ADAS calibrations, with an extensive list of additional functional tests and features, Bosch says.

The latest ADS software version adds the following functionality and optimizations, Bosch adds:

2022 coverage added – DTC, data support and bi-directional functions: Technicians are now able to support more domestic and foreign vehicles across various brands including Ford, Mercedes-Benz, and Hyundai with updated functionality to better service vehicles.

New ADAS calibration coverage: Technicians will now have the ability to provide calibration services to more Nissan, Subaru and BMW models, expanding the breadth of their service offerings.

Special functions and software enhancements: The update introduces Volumetric Efficiency Tests – a function that is not usually included on most other tools – which will assist technicians in determining the health of any engine that supports mass airflow (MAF). Additionally, the ability to add shop logos to scan reports has been improved for streamlined reporting efforts.

Bosch ADS users with a current subscription can install the updates after automatically receiving the download.
