Bartec USA Announces Latest Tool Update

Release enables functionality for Tesla Model cars and adds the brand new TPMS Replacement Sensor Rite-Sensor Blue.

Bartec USA, North America’s Trusted Brand in TPMS Solutions, announces the release of their latest TPMS tool software update. According to Bartec’s Product Manager Mathew Hitchcock, “This is our third update for 2022 and as always, adds significant coverage for the Rite-Sensor, adds new model year tool coverage and increases our already industry leading OBDII capabilities!”

As with every tool software release, Bartec is continuously developing aftermarket sensor coverage, while improving tool features and functions. This release will enable diagnostic functionality for Tesla Model cars and adds the brand new TPMS Replacement Sensor Rite-Sensor Blue.

According to Bartec, Tool software development requires collating huge amounts of data from industry partners, developing the necessary code based on that data, then thoroughly testing, and vetting the solution before releasing it to customers.  Bartec is an OE based provider and understands the critical part that testing plays in developing and releasing software. 

Release 65.0 is for older TPMS Tools Tech400Pro, Tech300Pro and Tech500.  Release 5.0 covers the TechRITEPro, Tech450Pro, Tech550Pro and Tech600Pro. Both versions contain additional OBDII coverage as well as additional model year 2023 coverage.  Bartec tools routinely offer the most TPMS Relearns through the OBDII port, and with this update, they’ve added much more.

To update your Bartec TPMS Tools, first make sure your software access is current.  The easiest way to do that is download Bartec’s free application, TPMS Desktop.  The TPMS Desktop is a tool management utility that helps with tool updating, vehicle look up and coverage as well as inspection report retrieval and printing. If you are an existing TPMS Desktop user, it will update automatically.  If you don’t yet have TPMS Desktop, visit Bartec USA’s website at www.bartecusa.com and click on the link to download.

A complete Technical Service Bulletin describing all the contents of software update 65.0/5.0 is now available for download at www.bartecusa.com or from the TPMS Desktop.  To download and install this update, you must have a current software subscription.  Check your account at tools.bartecusa.com and call your Bartec distributor to purchase an update certificate.
