That's good. I haven't put one on a car yet. Having the scope module external to the base unit seems like a good idea. I don't use the scope nearly as much as I use the scanner, so saving the space and weight will be nice.

Im more interested in the hardware specs, which seem to be missing. If anyone wants to post the system specs once they get one that would be cool. Its actually different then the Verus Edge this time.

The shop has a Zeus and I have a Verus Edge. I downloaded and ran a small program named "Speccy" which is how I discovered the two machines were identical. I am a bit curious about what Speccy (for example) says about the internals of this one. Local rep offered us one to test drive but my boss still has a bad taste from trading in his Verus Edge for basically the exact same thing and he declined.

Verus Edge and Zeus may have had the same hardware but Verus Edge did not get Intelligent Diagnostics

Zeus+ Hardware comparison at a glance...
  • Display 1920x1080 @ 11.6"
  • 128GB SSD
  • Battery life ~ 9 Hours
  • Bluetooth 5.0, 2.1
  • USB C
  • 8mp Camera

Seems like a decent upgrade, not really up to modern computer standards if I'm being picky. For the price though i would think it would have a better camera then a 2016 cell phone. The Verus edge works just fine, the main gripe i have is snap on refuses to support it for a windows 10 upgrade they just call it a legacy product now. Ive seen others do the upgrade and ram and HD upgrades as well however if you run into a problem Snap On wont help you because at that point your basically modding it.

Definitely agree it is not up to "modern standards" but neither are computers on cars. You can ramp up the hardware as much as you want but if the car's communication line is slow then there is nothing really the scanner can do to speed that up.

I think the major benefit of this product is how much support you get from Snap-on, assurance that software has been tested, and new features included with each software subscription.

It's good to see reviews and reports on the scanner I'll own as soon as I can get my hands on a used or repo unit. I gotta say though that I got a IM 508 autel as a back up and I'm impressed with the Immobilizer functions without any licensing, I've viewed their arguments that they only access the information and capabilities that are already in the vehicle. I would think that SnapOn could make some moves in this direction with out ruffling any feathers. Any ways the Autel is a terrible scanner with great functions and would never trade it for my Zeus.
