The new coverage in Snap-on Software Bundle 13.2 includes additional diagnostic capabilities for over 63 million vehicles on the road today, expanding repair shops’ service reach while fueling efficiency and productivity in the bay. Technicians can service more cars than ever before because the newest Snap-on diagnostic software upgrade offers 54,000 new codes, tests, tips and data going back to 1998 for all major makes, plus new 2012 domestic and Asian model year coverage for Acura, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia and Mitsubishi.

Newly enhanced optional European coverage is also available for nine European makes – Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Smart Car, Volkswagen and Volvo. This newest release includes the largest addition of enhancements for BMW to date, including codes, data and tests for the parking brake - without this function the brake pads can’t be replaced; body controls modules and HVAC, allowing techs to bi-directionally activate body and HVAC components, drastically reducing diagnostic time.

Software Bundle 13.2 and optional European software is available for VERUS®, VERDICT®, SOLUS™ Family platforms, in addition to MODIS™ and ETHOS® diagnostic tools.

 “With Software Bundle 13.2 and optional European software, new and enhanced features and coverage, which also includes all of the coverage from previous software releases, technicians who upgrade will improve repair accuracy, fixing more cars faster which means more profit,” said Bill Bruno, vice president of sales and marketing, “Our new software is loaded with tests, functions and systems that will keep the work in the shop and out of the dealership.”
