ALLDATA Next-Generation Technology Turns Tablet into Scan Tool

ALLDATA to Debut Next-Generation Technology at SEMA that Turns Tablet into Powerful Scan Tool

Throughout SEMA, ALLDATA representatives will be doing live demonstrations of the company’s flagship products, ALLDATA Repair and ALLDATA Collision, featuring the addition of 300,000 new non-OE interactive color wiring diagrams.

ALLDATA, an AutoZone company, is marking its 11th year at the annual SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) exhibition with the launch of ALLDATA Diagnostics. This next-generation technology turns a tablet into a powerful, professional scan tool, says the company. It’s the only scan tool solution with ALLDATA Repair or ALLDATA Collision built in, which means that codes link directly to relevant OEM-direct articles, as well as ALLDATA’s new interactive color wiring diagrams.

Instead of housing scan tool software in a hand-held unit, ALLDATA Diagnostics has a Vehicle Connection Interface (VCI) device that attaches to the vehicle’s OBD II port. It links wirelessly via Bluetooth to an Android, Windows 10 or iOS tablet, giving techs the flexibility to perform scan tool functions directly on the tablet from whatever location in or around the vehicle best suits their needs.

The VCI device is included in the ALLDATA Diagnostics subscription price, eliminating up-front costs for shops. The system works with Android, Windows 10, or iOS tablets and requires a subscription to ALLDATA Repair or ALLDATA Collision. There’s no charge for software or data updates; they’re included in the subscription price. ALLDATA Diagnostics will be available for pre-sale at SEMA.

“We’re thrilled to bring this game-changing scan tool solution to our customers,” said Mitch Major, vice president, commercial support, AutoZone and president, ALLDATA. “In addition to the convenience of fully integrated access to ALLDATA Repair or Collision, shops can repurpose their own computer tablet and turn it into a scan tool.”

ALLDATA Diagnostics delivers all the functionality technicians expect in a professional-level scan tool, with coverage for domestic, Asian and European vehicles. They can retrieve and clear manufacturer P, B, C and U codes. The scan tool also reads and displays PIDs, providing live sensor data from all modules/vehicle systems and offers bi-directional component control.

In addition, ALLDATA Diagnostics offers full-system pre- and post-DTC scan reporting. Shops can create detailed estimates and repair cars back to OEM standards. Collision shops can perform pre- and post-scans with PDF exports to ensure vehicles are repaired back to pre-accident OEM condition, a requirement mandated with increasing frequency by insurers and OEMs.
