I was just told by a Snap-on Diagnostics tech in the iATN forums that the Vantage Pro and Vantage Ultra 17.4 updates are part of the 18.2 ScanBay package. So, the update will remain available, at least until 18.4 comes out, I assume.

That is my understanding as well.

Sinice the 'Vantage' updates are only once a year (xx.4), the current 17.4 update is available for those units until 18.4 is released. So ya'll have another 6 months to get it!

Since V-Pro updates were only released in the 4th quarter (15.4, 16.4, etc.) the 17.4 last update "may" still be available since there won't be an 18.4 release.

My local rep explained it as when the new update came to him it over wrote and obliterated the previous version so that latest version was all he had.

Judge that as you will. If I were a rep you can bet I would have archived copies of every update from the first day I got access. But tool sales guys tend not to be too computer savvy like that. I bet all the updates back to where they first started exist. Somewhere. Every single one. Every year storage gets bigger and cheaper, there's no need nor point in deleting stuff like that to "make room" nor has there been for years.

Default Ethos pro help

Hello, am thinking about buying a used ethos pro. It is 16.4. Is that updateable still. I can't find it. Also can I manipulate things like purge valves? It is a good unit? Thanks

Hello, yes, the Ethos pro is basically a fully functional scan tool, manipulating things like purge valves is called bi-directional controls.

heres a comparison chart
also, it is still up-dateable, cost about $ 750 to update.
