Autodata will be exhibiting at Autopromotec 2019, the international automotive equipment and aftermarket trade show, running from 22-26 May 2019 at the Bologna Trade fair Centre in Italy. Since the last exhibition in 2017, Autodata has been hard at work developing new features, adding significant new content ready for the 2019 show in May.
The rate of change and quantity of updates has been unprecedented - all in line with ensuring Autodata maintains its 99% coverage of the cars on the road today. Over the last two years, this has meant over 2,800 new models added and over 85,000 updates in total to new and existing vehicles.
However, it’s not just about adding new vehicles and updating existing technical information. Autodata has also rolled out numerous new features since the last show in 2017.
Powering your diagnostics
Autodata’s DTC module was completely redesigned to save technicians even more time. OE fixes for common faults were integrated into the DTC module, so as well as the standard DTC error information, additional common faults are now also displayed when they connect to specific trouble codes. This means a huge amount of time can be saved by identifying the most likely causes up-front.
To take the next step in diagnostics, Autodata also launched Assist Me, a step-by-step diagnostic feature that gives the user the guidance to accurately dive deeper into more unique diagnostic issues.
Speeding up tyre data
An all-new tyres module gives technicians quick and easy access to vital information, including tyre pressures, tightening torques, TPMS info, jacking points, and jacking mode procedures; all in one easy-to-use technical module.
Dealing with electrical complexities
Autodata’s Electric Component Locations module was enhanced, meaning users now see all electronic component diagrams available for the selected vehicle, with the ability to easily locate the components relevant to their issue.
This was further enhanced with a new Fuses and Relays module, which presents all fuse boxes/relay plates and even has a search bar to find the fuse boxes/relay plates you need in seconds.
A completely new Bulbs Replacement module was also launched to give technicians easy access to accurate bulb replacement data. As well as providing a replacement guide for each type of bulb, the new module rates the difficulty of the replacement procedure. This new feature helps technicians quickly assess the complexity of the job, allowing them to accurately provide quotes and avoid underestimation of tasks.
Service Schedules have now been added to Autodata’s motorcycles product. This significant addition means, that as well as technical information, time estimates and DTC, this product now includes OE-recommended service items - something that is becoming more important with the growing complexity of bikes.
