The best just got better!

The TEXA Dealer Level Truck Diagnostic Scanner Tool with Laptop kit from Diesel Laptops which allows you to view live data and OEM flash codes, access troubleshooting & wiring diagrams, and perform bi-directional dealer level commands on virtually all makes and models has gotten some significant upgrades for the new year. In this blog post we will be going over the five biggest improvements over last year’s kit.

1. Better Texa

At the heart of this kit is the TEXA Navigator TXTs (hereafter referred to as TEXA). TEXA connects directly to the vehicle’s diagnostic socket, and communicates via Bluetooth with an included Panasonic Toughbook CF-31. The TEXA software was just updated to include even more support for older model trucks (1993 and older) and brand new trucks. There is also more off-highway functionality. For an in depth look at the software update, please see our TEXA Truck V43 Update blog post

2. Better Laptop

The laptop has been upgraded from a refurbished Panasonic Toughbook CF-30 to the much faster and more responsive Panasonic Toughbook CF-31. The refurbished Panasonic Toughbook CF-31 comes standard with 8GB of RAM, which is double that of the CF-30. The CF-31 also has a faster 128GB Solid State Drive. This laptop runs Windows 7 Pro with an option for Windows 10 Pro.

3. Better Software

DTC Solutions is the industry’s most concise, easiest to use software when you are trying to repair an engine code. This program is very simple:

  1. Pick your ECM (Engine, transmission, or ABS)
  2. Pick your code
  3. Read the solution … and that is it!

Version 2 of DTC Solutions is included with the 2018 Edition TEXA Dealer Level Kit. DTC Solutions Version 2 has 100+ new modules, 1500+ new wiring diagrams, and an enhanced search function.

4. Better Security

With our Diesel Defense Asset Protection Program, we’ve added a whole new level of security to the 2018 Edition TEXA Dealer Level Truck Kit. Now you can locate your laptop via GPS, immediately lock down the computer in the event of unauthorized use, remotely erase sensitive data, get usage reports, and set geo-fencing parameters. One year of the Diesel Defense Asset Protection Program is included when you purchase a 2018 Edition TEXA Dealer Level Truck Kit.
