OE-Level Coverage (Enhanced Interfaces)
Sometimes independent service shops and vehicle tuners require more information than what OBDII can provide. Since the OBDII standard covers only emissions-related Powertrain systems and sensors, there is a lot information you won’t be able to see. With our enhanced interfaces you can get factory tool-like capabilities with our ScanTool; allowing you to access hundreds of extra systems, sensors, and system tests so you can do your job faster and with a greater degree of accuracy.
Enhanced interfaces are software-only updates1 for our ScanTool line that, once purchased, can be activated through email. There is no extra installation or special hardware necessary1. The enhanced interfaces are licensed to single PC and come with free updates for the first year. There is no annual license fee and you can transfer your license to another PC if necessary. Updates to the enhanced interfaces are free for the first year; another year of updates is only 50 USD. (That's 50 per ScanTool not per enhanced interface.)
In some cases enhanced interfaces are required to connect to medium-size trucks like the Ford Super Duty, Chevy Duramax, and Dodge Cummins. Due to their excessive vehicular weight they are usually not required to be OBDII compliant.
Note: To achieve the faster data rates provided for by these options, we require the Windows 98 or ME operating systems to have the USB 2.0 support added. Windows 2000 or Windows XP comes with this support built-in.
Enhanced interface for Ford 1994-2006*
Although Ford does implement the largest subset of the OBDII standard compared to any other manufacturer, the typical vehicle only supports 20 - 40 sensors and is limited to emissions powertrain. Using the enhanced Ford interface, a typical Ford vehicle will support 200 - 300 sensors within half a dozen systems; that's essential systems like ABS, airbags, GEM, etc.
Our enhanced Ford interface coverage is only matched by factory tools; we have support for 2800+ sensors selected from all 68 systems. The Ford enhanced interface has support for Ford of Europe models such as Ka, Mondo, Galaxy, Fairlane, etc. Finally, our Ford enhanced has support for bi-directional commands and system level tests. With bi-directional controls, you will no longer be relegated to being just an observer in the operation of the vehicle--now you can take control of its operation.
