LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. (Aug. 18, 2015) — Snap-on Diagnostics, a division of Snap-on Inc., has launched an automatic subscription program designed to deliver continuous diagnostic information updates for late-model and older vehicles.
Snap-on said the program provides users access to the data for a low overall cost with monthly payments that are “easy on the wallet.” Available for the firm's Verus- and Verdict-family products, Modis Ultra, Solus Edge, Solus Ultra, Solus Pro and Ethos+, the software subscription program includes thousands of new vehicle systems, trouble codes, live data parameters, experienced-based troubleshooter tips, functional tests and adaptations, the firm added.
“A Snap-on software subscription is an easy, low-cost way for shops and technicians to obtain their new software upgrades, like software upgrade 15.2, to keep their diagnostic tools continuously updated,” said Leian Wunderlich, subscription program manager, Snap-on Diagnostics. “Not only will technicians have the coverage they need to complete jobs accurately and efficiently, but it also increases the value of their tool should they ever decide to trade up.”
Benefits to the software subscription program include:
- Continuous coverage;
- Access to Snap-on's SureTrack online resource of expert knowledge and parts replacement records;
- Auto-ID, One Touch Code Scan and Clear All Codes features;
- Navigation enhancements for fast access to results;
- New model year coverage and expanded coverage back to 1992;
- Coverage from all previous software upgrades; and
- Subscription Update Manager.
Available exclusively to software subscription program members, the subscription update manager feature notifies subscribers of upgrades as they become available, Snap-on said. Subscribers may download and install the latest upgrade at their convenience.
For users of Snap-on's optional European diagnostic software coverage, the software subscription service also includes regular European upgrades.
