OTC, an SPX brand, recently released the latest Pegisys software subscription (Version 2.1) to its on-tool repair and diagnostic information suite, which specifically focuses on USA Domestic vehicle coverage and contains improvements in all aspects of the core scan application. This release marks the second installment of the new 2010 models, and introduces several exciting new features, including the exclusive Code-Assist Experienced-Based Confirmed Fixes, Powered by Identifix.
"Pegisys, the most advanced diagnostic scan tool on the market today, continues to widen the gap from the competition with quarterly software subscription updates that continually add new features and increased coverage," said Ed Lipscomb, Senior Product Manager, Diagnostic Systems. "That’s four times per year OTC is ensuring technicians receive the latest technology and enhanced coverage for vehicle diagnostics. So, whether you need driveability, undercar, transmission, diesel, body control or just about any repair you can think of, OTC delivers the best capabilities for its next-generation Pegisys systems; and the best part is that all Pegisys customers get this new coverage as a part of their subscription!"
Version 2.1 boasts expanded system coverage for previously covered models as well as information on new 2010 models for General Motors, Saturn, Ford, Chrysler, and Jeep. This new software subscription offers more diagnostic power to the vehicles technicians see in their shops most often with access to more than 1,200 new vehicle systems and features the latest software functionality for nearly 1,000 new functional tests, bi-directional controls and relearns, including full support for the 2007 to 2010 Chrysler Sprinter. Enhanced GM coverage adds more than 4,380 new vehicles from 2010 to 1996 models with Ford over 1,100, Chrysler over 1,100 and Jeep over 200.
Pegisys Version 2.1 also introduces the exclusive Code-Assist Experienced-Based Confirmed Fixes, Powered by Identifix. Unlike the traditional list of theoretical potential causes provided by service manuals, this powerful addition now gives technicians access to more than 3 million vehicle-specific Confirmed Fixes for OBD-II Diagnostic Trouble Codes directly at their fingertips. Developed using more than 3.6 million hotline calls to the Identifix Repair Hotline and 8 million + Direct-Hit uses by Identifix customers each year, Code-Assist saves time and increases productivity by prioritizing a diagnostic strategy. Furthermore, no internet is required to use this powerful professional technician database.
In addition to the updates mentioned above, several unique product and performance enhancements help improve printer support with the addition of Generic PCL 3 / 5e / 6 printer drivers greatly expands the number of printers that are now supported.
