The update gives OBD2 scanner users expanded coverage and functionality, as well as enhanced RepairSolutions2 app features.

Innova Electronics Corporation, supplier of test equipment and diagnostic reporting for the automotive aftermarket, announces the availability of its latest software and firmware release for current generation OBD2 scanner tools and dongles. Innova diagnostic tool owners are encouraged to perform a software/firmware update to optimize performance and take advantage of added enhancements, the company says.

Innova says new added features and functions include:

  • Coverage and support for vehicles through model year 2022
  • Improved OBD2 live data parameters (PID) list with quick selection to record data and submit it to the server via the RepairSolutions2 app
  • Expanded tool functions, including more active test and special function capabilities such as battery reset, battery initialization, battery and alternator test and maintenance light reset supporting popular vehicle makes, including GM, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Hyundai and Nissan
  • Added QR code on packaging to make it easier for tool owners to download the RepairSolutions2 app. A free app that works as a companion to Innova OBD2 tools or as a stand-alone app, RepairSolutions2 lets users create vehicle health reports, get verified fixes and parts, see predicted repairs, and more.

The update also brings several enhancements and new features for compatible dongle tools, including the Innova 1000 CarScan Mobile device that enables users to turn their smartphone into an advanced OBD2 scanner, according to the company. New features and functions include maintenance and oil light reset, battery reset procedures, battery initialization for compatible BMW, Ford and Volvo vehicles, as well as the ability to perform battery and alternator tests.

Innova OBD tool owners should reference their user’s manual or visit the Innova Product Support page to check coverage and get instructions for available updates.
