Snap-on reminds professional automotive technicians that now is the perfect time to upgrade their Snap-on diagnostic tools to ensure they’re not missing out on the latest coverage and needed features.

“It’s critical for technicians to keep their diagnostic tools up-to-date with the latest vehicle coverage and capabilities to meet changing requirements and service more vehicles,” said Leian Wunderlich, software marketing and program manager, Snap-on Diagnostics. “Current upgrades always make a tool perform better than the day they bought it. You can’t say that about a lot of things. It is an investment worth making.”

Here are the types of jobs that technicians could be missing out on without the upgrade:

  • New collision-related repairs coverage for contemporary OEM safety and advanced driver’s assistance systems (ADAS) account for 40 percent of the new software release.
  • One-Touch Code Scan on 40 makes seamlessly produces pre-scan and post-scan reports to identify problems and confirm fixes, which creates customer confidence. Plus, these reports also fulfill mandates by the manufacturers and many insurance companies for pre- and post-collision work.

In addition, the new Apollo D8 and ZEUS support exclusive Intelligent Diagnostics. Investing in the latest technology innovations, resources and aftermarket repair relationships to significantly expand vehicle systems coverage and strengthen tool capabilities, Snap-on delivers software that is comprehensive enough to provide all the diagnostic and repair tips that customers need and smart enough to skip the ones they don’t. No other diagnostic tool can practically anticipate the user’s next move and guide them through every step needed to find the solution, while avoiding the steps they don’t. It displays only relevant information to the specific vehicle and fault code. From technical service bulletins and scanner Smart Data, to SureTrack expert information, Intelligent Diagnostics is the most sophisticated and intuitive software Snap-on has ever created.
