NEW VERUS
 
Any leaked news on new Verus supposed to be announced by end of mouth? Heard it might have J2534 capabilities. Also heard it would fit into Verus Edge work station.

If someone like Jay Leno or Orange County Chopper Junior can afford it and gives it a thumbs up on a Slick Promotional video and tells you to buy one, but the DJ that grabbed Taylor Swifts @ss recommends that you should take a pass.What would you do?:D

It will not have J2534 capabilities.

It will fit into the Verus Edge work station.

Hmmm , it's only been 2 years since the Verus Edge which is powerful, small, light, and Portable ,So I figure its got to be something shop mounted with a large 48" screen display scale akin to a modern day Counselor XL or Sun Scope, with all the extended leads , amp probes Etc that work off the existing Verus Edge and a modified Version of the docking station, on a rolling Diagnostic station, that has a built in smoke machine. Maybe Verus Edge might even offer a feature of a heads up display to project the Verus screen to the lower center of Windshield for driving at night with adjustable brightness or day driving transparent Google Glass type technology built in to special safety Goggles and built in, no bend over WIFI TPMS exciter like an extendable blind man cane for use with the tool.:confused:

I cannot confirm nor deny any such features without the approval of the CEO of Snap-on Diagnostics :D

A new Verus already? My predictions:

1.Verus pro and Verdict will no longer be supported after 18.2

2. the new Verus will have the same "new and improved" scope the Modis ultra/edge and vantage ultra have - 2 or 4 channels, maybe but minus the
dedicated ignition features and the built in transducer/rpm port and other features WILL be missing.

3. possibly missing at least one of the usb ports and/or the micro sd card port

4. bios WILL be password locked ( which should be illegal. it's like selling someone a house, but locking them out of their utility room)

5. hard drive permanently attached to motherboard so it can't be changed or upgraded

I don't know why a new Verus - hardwarewise, the edge is pretty good.
I would have suggested a much larger hard drive, possibly accessible from outside without unit disassembly, a return of the directional navigation keys that the pro had, and possibly a MORE capable scope with ADDED features.

The biggest bone I have to pick with the Verus series is the features they took away with 10.4 and never returned - and that's SOFTWARE !!!


Let's see how well I predicted.:D:D:D

Hmmm, Maybe it's a Concoction of an External 1 TB harddrive inside a Snap On Symantic Anti Verus Modem that loads only the software of the car you are working on into a re-badged Maxi-Dasch tablet.:eek:
