I see a few different Threads in various parts of the forum with people asking for different test and features. As some of you know Snap On does look at this site to determine what is most important to focus on for future software relases. I personal thought a thread like this might be a good idea to disscus what we would like to see added or even issues that could be fixed or improved upon. Let's see what you guys think
For me I would like to see some of the following things added
1. Honda / Acura VTM-4 Support
2. Honda / Acura Evap Testing.
Bi-directional support like the Factory scan tool to open and close the solenoids to test the system.
Doing this manually is time consuming when needing to smoke the system and some times requires removing a few parts to gain additonal access.
3. On Verus Plateforum when you pull a code, it gives you the option for more Help.
That link takes you directly to Shop Key 5. Not all of us have a subscription. A direct link to trouble shooter would be more helpfull for those of us not using mitchel
How about changeing that option to also Alow you to look in trouble shooter software.
Currently you have to navigate around this to get to the trouble shooter software. This is Also time consuming. As a New User, I was un-aware of this and had to get help to figure out how to find the trouble shooter after pulling a code.
4. Back button does not always work on Verus plateforum.
I understand a fix is on the way as we have discussed this in the verus forum.
5. I know Volvo coverage is on the way Starting with the basics first But would like to see all module coverage for these in the future.
6. More Porsche coverage.
I know not every one works on these but some do from time to time. Like my self. I had the seat out trying to diagnose a bad module under the seat. This set the SRS light on and I had to get some one local to Reset this for me.
7. GM Tire size calibration.
The Tech 2 can change tire size calibrartion from the tool which affects the way the brakeing system works and were the shift points occure. This feature is very valuable when I do brake jobs. Since people change tire size deppending on whats on sale and what not I would be nice to adjust this Like the factory tool.
I know its avalible in the GM Tech 2 software on trucks like 99- up body style because I own an 00 and 05 Silverado my self and have used this feature. Not sure on cars though.
Over all I would say in the last 2 years Snap On has made Huge improvments in there coverage. Thats why I finally spent the money on a new scan tool. Same with the shop owner I currently work for. We looked a several scan tools and had a few demo's, but overall the Snap on had fairly good coverage and a good over all lay out.
Let's what you guys would like to see added or changed.
