Snap-on® invests in the latest technology innovations, resources and aftermarket repair relationships to significantly expand coverage and offer exclusive tool capabilities. With the latest upgrade, customers receive hundreds of vehicles systems across 56 automobile and motorcycle manufacturers to overcome the toughest general and collision repair obstacles quickly.

With the newest software Snap-on introduces its Secure Vehicle Gatewaysolution to unlock 2018 and newer FIAT Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) for direct access from the scan tool to the vehicle’s secure gateway module. Wi-Fi enabled diagnostic platforms using current software now have the ability to perform reset functions and bi-directional tests, that were previously inaccessible because of the secure vehicle gateway. All FCA secure gateway compliant solutions require device and user registration. The Snap-on solution is designed to help navigate through this process.

Up-to-date diagnostic software maximizes customers’ tool investment and guarantees better performance than the day they bought it. With Secure Vehicle Gateway, along with award-winning Advanced Drivers Assistance Systems (ADAS) coverage and other Snap-on breakthroughs, such as Intelligent Diagnostics and Service Resets and Relearns, customers get a unique value that they can’t find anywhere else.
