Bartec USA announced the release of its latest TPMS-tool software update.
“This is our third update for 2022 and as always, adds significant coverage for the Rite-Sensor, adds new model-year tool coverage and increases our already industry-leading OBD II capabilities,” said Mathew Hitchcock, Bartec’s product manager.
As with every tool-software release, Bartec is continuously developing aftermarket-sensor coverage, while improving tool features and functions. This release will enable diagnostic functionality for Tesla models and adds the brand-new TPMS replacement sensor Rite-Sensor Blue.
According to Bartec, tool-software development requires collating huge amounts of data from industry partners, developing the necessary code based on that data, then thoroughly testing and vetting the solution before releasing it to customers. Bartec is an OE-based provider and understands the critical part that testing plays in developing and releasing software, the company noted.
Release 65.0 is for older TPMS tools Tech400Pro, Tech300Pro and Tech500. Release 5.0 covers the TechRITEPro, Tech450Pro, Tech550Pro and Tech600Pro. Both versions contain additional OBD II coverage as well as additional model-year 2023 coverage.
