Bosch announced that it will offer new remote OEM diagnostic software capabilities on its diagnostic vehicle communication interface (DVCI) products, including the Bosch ADS 525X and 625X scan tools.
Starting next year, Bosch says its DVCI scan tool users will be able to utilize licensed and authorized OEM diagnostic software remotely on most major vehicle brands, via a user interface. ASE-certified technicians will be able to perform complex scans remotely in real time at the car, using internet-connected scan tools. Reports generated by OEM diagnostic software will be gathered in a central database with the ability to be sent to clients or insurance carriers directly, or be made available for access at a later date.
“The addition of new remote OEM software capabilities improves productivity in the aftermarket, enabling technicians to fix it right the first time,” said Michael Simon, director of strategic accounts at Bosch.
