Hamaton announced details about the first major update of its TPMS programming app on iOS, which is says enhances the overall user experience.
Designed to program the U-Pro Hybrid NFC in one tap, the app* has undergone a makeover to modernize the interface, Hamaton says. The update also introduces features that deliver a simplified vehicle lookup, essential TPMS information and the flexibility to operate offline.
Hamaton adds users can add vehicles they program most often to their “favorites” and, consequently, access them quicker than selecting the make and model each time. The refreshed app also displays the type of relearn procedure a vehicle uses (auto relearn, OBD, etc.), along with a short description.
The vehicle database automatically updates whenever users launch the app** so the latest coverage will always be at one’s fingertips. Even if there is limited or no internet access, the app will continue to run smoothly, according to Hamaton. In these instances, it will draw on the last database downloaded.
As with the last version, Hamaton says users can program the sensor to a specific vehicle protocol or enter an existing OE sensor ID. The Manual ID option enables users to skip the relearn process as the ID (in the ECU) is unchanged.
The update is now available to download. Search “Hamaton NFC” on the Apple App Store.
