I use Macrium Reflect as well. It was the only one I tried that could clone the weird little drive of my old Verdict onto an SSD.

Digging further. I see a buttload of ADAS scanning capability and stuff. That seems to be mostly what this update is aimed at. A fine thing for body shops I guess but about none of that applies to...

The 18.4 thread

It would be nice if this could be a thread about nice improvements they have made with the new update. But when I informed my boss the Zeus had just updated to 18.4 his first reaction was "Oh God, so...

Snap On in its wisdom refuses to let you look at that stuff without being connected to a vehicle. So I'd have to find a similar Dodge to actually hook up to and then look. But off the top of my head...

A cheap Linksys extender I think. Son-in-law gave it to me after he upgraded to a mesh setup. Figured I had zero to lose and it actually works great. With everything except the Solus.

I read CVI's all the time with a Verus Edge with 17.4, a Solus Edge with 17.4, and a Zeus with 18.2.

I see you're not familiar with this particular scanner at all. The constantly being up to date with the latest TSB's and such is a big selling point with a Zeus. The only anti-virus it runs is stock...

Yep. There's two columns of data I have to scroll down to see more of on screen. Data I believe for all parameters EXCEPT the MLPS.

Similar issue, there's no data PID for the MAF on an OBDI 5.0 F150. I know data tends to be limited on such older stuff but it still seemed to be an odd one to leave out.
