CAR ASYST, the mobile system solution for fast initial diagnostics and error detection in Audi after-sales service and repair shops, supports actuator addressing in the current app version 1.3. This means service centers can run targeted actuator diagnostics on a stationary vehicle to validate the functional capability of components.

The presentation of vehicle reports was revised for the current release and now makes it possible to integrate images. Furthermore videos, graphics and measurement values are now displayed in Landscape mode. Release 1.3 can now be used not only on smartphones but also on ARM based tablets. CAR ASYST also runs on ServicePad VAS 601 301. The CAR ASYST data package now also contains the vehicle data of the new Audi A5 and the Audi Q7 e-tron.

To extend the range of usable Audi models, owners of the VAS 5054A VCI can now also use these tried and tested devices for vehicle analysis with the CAR ASYST APP. This means that vehicles of the model ranges AU37X (Audi A3/S3/TT/Q2) are also available for analysis. The current version 1.3 of CAR ASYST now supports the model ranges A4, Q7, A5, Q7 e-tron as well as A3/S3/TT/Q2.

The CAR ASYST APP is available here [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.softingapp ] in the Google Play Store. All other information on the diverse uses of CAR ASYST and the supported vehicle range can be found on the info site www.car-asyst.com.
