Default secure gateway on chrysler/ ford vehicles

hi all wondering what the official word from snap on is about secure gateway. What is going to be the strategy for addressing the issue? I'm going to be in the market for a new scan tool soon, however i am considering just going oem for the most part. I do understand the increased cost. We deal with alot of newer vehicles from body shops here and the aftermarket doesnt seem to cut it any more.

I have not heard of any word from snap on on what they are going to do about the SGW module.. but that being said, I believe that even with a factory scan tool on some FCA cars you still need to log into the SGW module with the factory tool with a username and password, and then it still only allows access for like a hour, then you must log back into it.

anything is possible...but just know, even the factory scan tool will not be straight forward.

i have ids and fdrs. have used wi tech on j2534 both are very easy to grasp. wi tech you need to be linked to fca server the whole time so i tether my phone if needed. my understanding is that there is the possibility of a model where snap on can have their tool linked to a server that hand shakes on the fca side to allow the tool to work. just wondering if there is any work being done on their end to make this happen. i have heard that both g scan and snap on have submitted their applications to fca to work on a solution.
