Default vantage Ultra

Has anyone heard any word on a new Vantage ultra? hoping for a new model lab scope similar to my Solus ultra.

How many diagnostic platforms do snapon really want to release. What is the point to a Modis ultra which has 2 less channels than the original.

I can't even by some of the optional extras here in the UK for my 12 month old Verdict but they seem ro not worry about that so just launch a new tool instead without bothering to ensure there current platforms are well supported.

New Vantage Ultra is being launched this week. Really fast, 2 channel labscope. 8" screen. Touch screen or thumb navigation. I'm sure more info will be released on this site anyday now.

There's a pretty good discussion on it now over on IATN for those of you
who are members.
Here's my take from what I heard:

Looks like it fell 2 channels short of even my pessimistic predictions concerning it earlier on IATN:

"It'll have 4 channels, a touch screen, which will be welcome, but they will leave out a multitude of key features that are now present and useful on their older offerings and not bring them back. It's just the Snap On way when they bring out a new and "improved" tool. If I am wrong, I will be more than happy to eat a plate of crow, but it seems they CANNOT or more likely WILL NOT give you something without taking something useful away."

Unfortunately, it looks like I was right on my third prediction. I hope for Snap On's sake that they don't plan to discontinue the Vantage pro because except for the touchscreen for those who like it, the pro appears to be the better scope. I just can't understand the Snap On concept of leaving features out of newer tools that older ones had. A newer tool should always do ANYTHING the older tools do that it is replacing only more and better - or there is no sense in building it and selling it in the first place. One thing missing the PRO had was the built in amps feature. I would be interested to know if it also lacks the zoom feature and ignition features just as the Modis ultra does. If so, I look for it to go over like a turd in the punch bowl.

Very true on the above statements. My dealer just left, but while here he was touting the new design. I told him there's nothing new, and his reply was "touchscreen".... Who gives a rats a$$ about that.... Oh and he said "bigger screen"...another thing that wasn't a real issue on the Pro. He didn't have a price, but I'm guessing $4k.... I'll just keep my Pro

Apparently I'm not the only one who is NOT IMPRESSED by a "touch screen".....

As for a bigger screen, dump the files into your laptop & Shop Stream Connect and bring your 72 inch television to the shop and use that for the laptop display

We need FUNCTIONALITY not glitz glamour and oooh aaaah "features" that do NOTHING for our diagnostic process.
