Press Release: CAS Announces Major Release For The G-Scan Family Of Scan Tools

The company (CAS) has announced today that E-ZDS the software developer for G-scan, has just
released the next major software update for the G-scan family of scan tools.

CAS President and CEO, John Jenkins commenting on this first major release of 2021; “It’s great to
see the amount of new coverages introduced with this release. Jaguar and Land Rover were extended
quite a bit as were the Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge vehicle lines”

“I am also excited to see the release of an ever increasing number of ADAS calibration capabilities
as E-ZDS is adding a number of 2020 vehicles. In the past, repair shops could wait 2-3 model years for
coverage to arrive. Now with ADAS services, a number of our customers are demanding more current
vehicle coverage. E-ZDS has been addressing this situation with their software development”

It was also noted E-ZDS has security access capabilities for both the FCA vehicle line as well as
Hyundai and Kia making the Gscan-3 and Gscan-2 the only known non-OEM scan tools to offer this
OEM authorized dual security access capability.

The newly added vehicle coverages include a large amount of 2020 model year vehicles, multiple
Mercedes Benz models, 2018-2020 Fiat Chrysler and 20+ other car lines. Expansion areas include
Diagnostics, Maintenance Functions and ADAS calibrations. Also made available is a multi-page ‘What’s
New’ PDF file for downloading from the CAS website; https://oemtools.com/multi-line-scanners/.

Customers under a current subscription are encouraged to update their G-scan immediately to take
advantage of all the latest additions and enhancements. G-scan owners wishing to purchase a
subscription are encouraged to call their CAS representative.

Windows 7 Support Ending

Windows 7 Support Ending, Time to Upgrade?

Microsoft has announced that they are ending Windows 7 Support, along with ceasing security updates on this platform. For many of your computers, updates will be required, and the deadline is approaching.  

Two options are:

  • Update to a minimum software requirement of Windows 10
  • Consider a new laptop, with a minimum requirement of Windows 10 software and in-built Solid State Drive hardware

For a compatible laptop, CAS recommends the Panasonic CF-54 Toughbook; we carry and support this hardware.  CAS is currently fighting to get the Panasonic Toughbook in stock fast enough to meet the high demand for this model.

Here are the Toughbook’s specs:

  • Thinner design
  • 14” notebook with HD or Full HD display
