Bosch ESI[tronic] update expands GM coverage

June 1, 2011

Robert Bosch LLC has issued a major update to its ESI[tronic] automotive database software. The 2011/2 update, which is available now, increases the repair shop’s capabilities for servicing General Motors vehicles.

The update has added thousands of new codes and data parameters in the program’s Snaplist, including more function tests, more OBD controls and more diagnostic trouble code information than ever before, says Bosch.

The update includes extensive relevant domestic data on: Buick, Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC, Hummer, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Saturn General Motors vehicles; Ford/Mercury, Chrysler, and Dodge/Jeep vehicles; relevant updates on Toyota, Lexus, and Honda Asian vehicles; and Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, and Volkswagen European vehicles.

ESI[tronic] includes comprehensive coverage for popular domestic, Asian and European vehicles, and this latest update powers up the shop’s capabilities using Bosch’s KTS 340 scan tool, as well as the KTS 570 and KTS 670. The system utilizes a uniform user interface on the majority of Bosch diagnostics systems, and quarterly updates keep subscribers abreast  of the latest information available.

Bosch’s ESI[tronic] database software provides its 60,000 subscribers with up-to-date, relevant service and repair data on 60 types of electronic systems in over 230,000 models from more than 120 vehicle manufacturers, six months after the market launch of a new vehicle.
