DrewTech completes BAR-OIS BETA

DrewTech has finished beta testing, and is now waiting for BAR to complete the certification paperwork. I’d like to thank all of our BETA testers that did an absolutely awesome job!

For those that were not following the BETA process, we had a fantastic team of BETA stations that included a mix of of the biggest and best in the state. Since BETA started in December, they have tested over 100,000 cars with the wired and wireless versions of our IMclean DAD. Some built their own PC setup, while others used a Banalogic or ESP system that included the IMclean DAD.

While we would have loved to finish first, that was not our #1 priority. We instead took the opportunity to make sure that the product we were testing in BETA was bug free and ready for prime time. I’m extremely happy to see that we reached the end with a product that has proven successful and our team still meet the finish line within a week of the fastest DAD vendor.

If you have a DrewTech IMclean, Banalogic Kisok, or ESP solution we’re now getting ready to begin activations. Please be sure your DAD disclosure agreement was sent in.

If you are still on the fence as to which DAD device to buy, give us a call and we’ll be happy to talk it thru with you.

VW ODIS Dealer App supports J2534

VW has just released a version of their dealership application “ODIS” that works with J2534 tools. With ODIS, independent repair shops have the same diagnostic capabilities as the dealership. Currently CarDAQ-Plus is the only tool validated and supported, but we are working to get CarDAQ-M supported.

DrewTech performs first BAR-OIS BETA test in California

On December 4th, Smog ‘n Go performed the first Smog OBD2 smog test for a real customer in the state of California. This represents the first time the new BAR-OIS system was used to perform a smog check for a California resident. The smog test was completed using a DrewTech IMclean device.

DrewTech is now one of only two vendors in BETA, and the DrewTech IMclean is being used to perform actual emissions smog tests on consumer vehicles. This BETA program is expected to complete soon.
