New OTC Genisys Touch with AutoDetect

Posted on October 30, 2012

OTC, a division of Service Solutions LLC, announced today a new standard of diagnostic innovation with the launch of the professional OEM-grade Genisys Touch, the first-ever PC-based tablet diagnostic tool with an included J2534 Reflash/Reprogramming device.

The product was launched at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 2012, at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, Nev.

OTC says that like an experienced technician searching behind the scenes, the exclusive AutoDetect feature finds repair information by code, symptom and pattern failure. Technicians can view relevant embedded test procedure training videos during live diagnostic sessions without interrupting workflow.

The new Genisys Touch is a leading-edge Windows 7 diagnostic platform with a large resistive 10.1-inch touch screen. It includes advanced and exclusive features such as VIN-based AutoID to detect CAN vehicles in one touch, Wi-Fi and web browser access, including directly to technicians’ favorite OEM subscription sites, and Bluetooth pairing to an included J2534 vehicle communication device, as well as OTC’s optional wireless TPMS reset tool and PC-Based 2-Channel Oscilloscope.

AutoDetect is an exclusive feature of Genisys Touch. It is an experience-based information solution aimed at providing the technician with instant repair information solutions on the spot. The system will automatically detect and alert the technician if there are any on-tool or internet repair solutions available for the specific year, make, and model based on trouble code or symptom.

“Today’s automotive aftermarket technicians have dramatically shifted how they operate in-shop with the adoption and utilization of advanced diagnostic tools and technology which are now an integral part of the conduct of daily business,” says Ed Lipscomb, OTC senior product manager of Diagnostic Systems.

“By implementing state-of-the-art enhancements into our trusted brand of diagnostic tools, specifically with the launch of the Genisys Touch, technicians can fully optimize their diagnostic strategy without compromising power, process integration or performance.”
