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.
