Bosch announced today a new software release for its ADS 325 and ADS 625. ADS 4.0 introduces many new and improved features, including faster scanning capabilities with Quick-Scan, enhanced European vehicle coverage, access to FCA Secure Gateway (SGW) vehicles and continued free access to Repair-Source, on tool vehicle service and repair information library.

Bosch offers the best aftermarket coverage in one solution available on the market. The latest ADS software version adds the following functionality and optimizations:

Major additions to European vehicle coverage: Bosch expands its industry-leading coverage by adding thousands of OE functions for Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen

Quick-Scan: Technicians can now perform full system DTC scans in an average of under 60 seconds – many vehicle year, make and models complete scans in 30 seconds or less

FCA Secure Gateway: FCA has approved Bosch manufactured diagnostic tools for secure access to SGW module found in most 2018 and newer FCA vehicles

ADAS Coverage: New dynamic ADAS calibration test added for Ford, GM, Jaguar, Land Rover, Hyundai and Kia vehicles

In addition to these advancements, ADS 4.0 continues to offer free access to Repair-Source. The on-tool vehicle service and repair information built into the ADS 4.0 software puts access to OE wiring diagrams, maintenance schedules, OEM service procedures for AC/heater, engine, airbag and more at technicians’ fingertips without leaving the shop floor.       

The expanded European coverage, Quick-Scan and FCA Secure Gateway unlock software updates are also compatible with OTC Encore and Evolve platforms.
