Current JPRO licence holders, with an active support agreement, can access the update online here.
Customers can now combine JPRO’s 28,000-plus OEM diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and detailed descriptions with comprehensive DTC-based OEM service information. This means that technicians can now move from diagnosis to repair in less than a minute, the company says, shortening the elapsed time between initial trouble detection and a fully repaired vehicle. Customers with a Next Step subscription can launch repair information from within the main diagnostics program with the click of a button.
Once a DTC is found, technicians click on the Next Step logo (located on the JPRO launch bar within the home screen) and a new window opens containing service information associated with the specific fault. In 30 seconds or less.
Information displayed includes Mitchell 1 repair-connect.net troubleshooting information covering most heavy-duty diesel engines (Cat, Cummins, Detroit, International, Volvo/Mack, and Mercedes). There are also OEM troubleshooting guides for Eaton Fuller transmissions, Meritor WABCO, Bendix, and Haldex.
Customers who purchase JPRO software are offered three months of JPRO Next Step at no charge (with a signed end user license agreement or EULA) along with three months of JPRO support.
Other updates to JPRO 2013 v1 include expanded coverage for Haldex ABS; enhanced graphical gauges on the Key Data Points and Data Monitor screens; and a new wizard for easy initial setup.
