Turn your tablet into a professional-level scan tool
with the power of ALLDATA built in
Now shop owners, service writers, and technicians can turn their Android and Windows 10 tablet into a powerful, professional scan tool, thanks to ALLDATA Diagnostics. And it’s the only scan tool solution with ALLDATA Repair or ALLDATA Collision built in.
An honest conversation
about scanning in today’s
collision repair shops
Auto Body Repair Network (ABRN) magazine is known as “the Voice of the Collision Repair industry.” They recently interviewed Collision shop owner Patrick Porter to learn how he incorporated scan tools into his shop’s work flow in order to help reduce liability, keep up with ever-changing technology, and properly repair vehicles back to pre-accident condition.
Instead of housing the scan tool software in a bulky, hand-held unit, ALLDATA Diagnostics has a VCI (Vehicle Connection Interface) device that attaches to the vehicle’s OBD port. Then it links wirelessly via Bluetooth to a tablet (Android or Windows 10). This gives you the flexibility to perform all the scan tool functions on the tablet. And with ALLDATA built in, codes link directly to relevant OEM-direct articles, including ALLDATA’s new interactive color wiring diagrams – there’s no punching out to a separate browser or application. See system requirements here.
Part of what makes ALLDATA Diagnostics such a game-changer is that the VCI (Vehicle Connection Interface) device that attaches to the vehicle’s OBD port is included in the subscription, eliminating hefty up-front costs. And there’s no charge for software/data updates, either. Plus, you can use your own Android or Windows 10 tablet. Don’t have a tablet? Don’t worry, we’ll put together a custom bundle for you.
ALLDATA Diagnostics delivers all the functionality you’d expect in a professional-level scan tool, with coverage for domestic, Asian, and European vehicles. Thanks to its user-friendly navigation and seamless integration with ALLDATA Repair or Collision, it takes far fewer steps to get the results you need.
