A current subscription will enable you to use your Hanatech service tool to the best of it’s abilities. We strongly recommend that the machine gets plugged in via USB and updates are run regularly. This will enable the machine to run at it’s optimised best. We strongly advise you to set a reminder on your PC about running updates, and plugging it in at night leaves it ready to go in the morning!
The Hanatech technicians regularly update software and patches for updates on a range of vehicles including cars from Japan, which is ideal for the range of imports that we see on our shores. Also, having a machine in current subscription allows the technician to select from previous options of software (Rolling) to best serve the vehicle you have in your workshop.
After running the latest updates, the machine will time out from HostPro. We strongly urge you to re-connect and repeat the procedure, BUT instead of “Latest Version” select “TRIAL” version from the drop down box at the top, and run this option. It will NOT over ride latest versions, but will give you TRIAL versions which is where Hanatech development work is being undertaken, and you can use these options for scanning vehicles as well. Which will give you a greater range on your service tool. (And don’t forget to keep these updated too!)
Rolling? Forward and back
So much data and functions is crammed into these 512mb cards, so inevitably it can get a bit crammed, and NO Communication Errors occur, nothing can be worse than plugging into a regular visitor, and NOT being able to scan, so this necessitates the need to roll the software. To do this, connect scan tool to Host-Pro but instead of selecting “Scan Latest Version” change this to Scan Previous or Scan OLD versions. But do NOT select ALL manufacturers, just the make of vehicle that you are working on, and Update the software to either of these, and this will increase the range of vehicles and options available to you. BUT for good working practices, ROLL the software back to latest versions after you have finished.
