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 third major release of 2022; “Another release and on time, as usual, with the E-ZDS engineering team! This release has 3 dozen different car lines being added or updated to the G-scan scan tool database.” “For those repair shops and mobile diagnostic service providers that use the G-scan and Zenith-5, they will be happy to see this release includes the majority of 2022 models for Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge. 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 on-going, timely software development.”

It was also noted E-ZDS has security access capabilities for the FCA vehicle line as well as Hyundai and Kia making the Z5, G-scan3, and G-scan2 the only known non-OEM scan tools to offer both of these OEM authorized dual security access capabilities.

The newly released software includes a large amount of new Volkswagen, Audi and Subaru coverage, as well as 30+ other car lines. Expansion areas include Diagnostics, Maintenance Functions and ADAS calibrations. Also made available is a multi-page ‘What’s New September 2022’ 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.

Tech Alert, October 21, 2021

Notice Date: October 5th, 2021

Product Affected: All laptop based OEM scan tools

Condition: Microsoft has recently started releasing their next Windows operating systems, dubbed Windows 11. At this time there are two issues we want you to be aware of. First, Windows 11 will not load to every PC, as it is ‘hardware dependent’ and if a PC does not meet the specs then it will not load. Second, and more important is the fact that as of today there are no OEMs that have certified their tools to work with Windows 11. Because of this situation we recommend not loading Windows 11 onto any PC that is running any OEM application. This includes both Heavy Duty and Passenger Car OEM apps.

Actions To Take: It is suggested you speak with anyone in your business that uses any laptops running OEM apps. Advise them to not download Windows 11 under any circumstances until further notice.

Call CAS Tech Support or your local CAS Rep if you have further questions.
