Bartec Releases TPMS Tool Software Update

Oct. 11, 2018

The latest tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) tool software update from Bartec USA LLC includes a way to select the vehicle and retrieve TPMS fault codes in one step.

Bartec says VINdicate is exclusive to its software. Simply connect the Bartec Pro Series tool to the OBDII port. The VIN is detected and decoded, and with the make-model-year selected, the DTCs are also detected and decoded. Now the technician has the basis for understanding what services are necessary, making quoting and selling TPMS much easier.

The company says the available features in the software update depend on the Bartec tool and are clearly defined in the software release bulletins found by clicking the Tech Support icon found in Bartec’s TPMS Desktop.

Also in update 58 is additional placard coverage for the Tech400 Pro. The company says Bartec tools use a secure method for adjusting the placard to prevent making the TPMS inoperative.

In addition, Bartec will post updated coverage charts on its website.
