Snap-on Announces Upgrade

May 2, 2017

An upgrade from Snap-on will allow users to increase European coverage.

May 2, 2017—With the recent introduction of software upgrade 17.2, Snap-on has continued to increase its optional European coverage. The latest release offers enhanced critical systems coverage for Alfa Romeo, BMW, FIAT, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Porsche, Smart Car, Volkswagen and Volvo.

“We know that working on European vehicles can be a challenge and the last thing that technicians need is to be let down by their diagnostic platform,” said Leian Wunderlich, software and program manager for Snap-on Diagnostics. “Over the years Snap-on has significantly enhanced optional European coverage so that technicians have more repair opportunities and can keep even the toughest European repair job in house.”

Highlights of the software upgrade 17.2 optional European coverage include, but are not limited to:

  • BMW Expert Mode adds many factory-level coding functions used to change vehicle options, systems fitted, convenience features and more
  • Land Rover electronic parking brake (EPB) factory-level function prevents damage to the system when the parking brake system needs to be released to change brake pads
  • Mercedes-Benz occupant classification delivers necessary recalibrations for weight sensing and airbag systems that control the passenger airbag whenever seat work is done
