WARREN, Mich. (Sept. 8, 2014) — OTC Tools, a division of Bosch Automotive Service Solutions, has enhanced its OTC Encore integrated scan tool for Android devices.
The company has added compatibility with its 3834T Tire Pressure Reset (TPR) tool and the OTC 3895-07 HD standard starter kit, covering Class 4-8 heavy duty (HD) vehicles.
Adding compatibility with OTC's TPR tool allows Encore to register TPMS sensors and diagnose related vehicle issues, according to the company. The tool is capable of communicating wirelessly with Encore via Bluetooth to enter each wheel's TPMS sensor ID, which saves time and eliminates ID entry errors, OTC said.
The Class 4-8 HD scan diagnostics coverage added to Encore includes the ability to read and erase trouble codes and view live data in the firm's DataStream feature.
In addition to the added TPR and HD scan options, Encore boasts coverage that includes 2014 model year Mazda and Fiat vehicles; 2013-14 model year BMW and Mini vehicles; and 2013 model year Mercedes-Benz and Smart vehicles.
