New Software Functions
VIN Vehicle Search
Arguably the most useful function introduced with this CAR 52 update is the possibility to identify the model of the vehicle you are working on by entering its VIN. This search was added to the other search options, by engine code and license plate number, within a single screen. By entering the VIN, the software identifies the vehicle you are going to work on quickly and precisely. If the VIN is not available, you can scan the vehicle to acquire it and then use it to identify the model.
Note that this function is not available in IDC4 Pocket
During Self-diagnosis, within the Injection system you will find the item “Engine Management”. It is a new function that allows you to launch the basic diagnosis of the engine control units, with the display of the parameters and the reading and deletion of the DTCs. The basic diagnosis previews the complete diagnosis that will be available in the following versions.
NOTE: Engine Management is not compatible with “old generation” tools, such as NAVIGATOR MOBILE and TRIBOX with A-DIA module, in which the software will show the warning “Diagnostic function not supported by the product in use”.
TEXA is proud to announce that with this software release you can operate in Pass- Thru mode using the diagnostic devices NAVIGATOR TXC and TXT. You will be able to work on different brands* of vehicles, after having registered with the EURO5 section of the sites of the various manufacturers and respecting the requirements. You will also have to purchase the reprogramming software at the prices determined by each manufacturer. The software must then be installed on a PC and, once TEXA’s tool is configured, it will be possible to proceed with the Pass-thru diagnosis.
* only for brands that do not require the VCI Pass-Thru certification
