Solus Pro


Recommended Posts



I,m looking for a new scanner I,m looking at the Snap On Solus Pro any ideals or experences with it what can I exspect to do and not do with it?How would it compare to a OTC Genicisis or Mac mentor?

 

I have the Snap On Solus, it's a nice tool. You will need to buy different modules for the brands of cars you work on. Another nice scanner we have is the new wirelesss Launch. I do not have any first hand knowledge on the OTC or Mac Mentor.

We have the Launch Diagun, its wireless, which is a real nice feature. It's great with Asian, most Euro, not too good with Volvo or Saab.

 

The Snap-On Solis is great with domestic, Asian and fairly good with Euro. The Solis does not do Volvo or Saab that well.

 

The scanner issue is a major problem these days. We are constantly looking at different scan tools.

 

Hopes this helps.

We have several scanners. We have the Bosch, OTC Evolution, OTC Genusys, Interro, OTC 4000 and our newest one is the Autoenginuity. The Autoenginuity is by far the less expensive, but you do have to purchase a laptop to go with it. We were going to go with Snap On's but decided on the Autoenginuity after talking to dealers that had both. Hope this helps.

 

How is the Autoenginuity with Euro, Volvo in particular.

Joe,

We got it the end of November. We paid for the enhanced with everthing including the Euro $2399.00 and a Toshiba lap top $349.99. Our European Tech says it does everything with Volvo control module. He has not used it yet for Trac control. We purchased it because our Bosch didn't seem to have everything for Euro cars. When I talked to Autoenginuity they said they get the same info that VW has. So far, we really like it. We were going to buy the Snap on Verus, but there was so much bad feed back on it. Also, the fellow that turned me on to the Autoenginuity had the Verus and was very unhappy. Hope this helps someone.

Yes, it helps me. Thanks. It is so confusing these days with all the scanners out there. Every bit of information is a great help to us all.

Here is the write up on that tool: Bosch Diagnostics - KTS 340

 

Allot of the Bosch scan tools are old Vetronix (makers of Tech2 and Mastertech). Bosch bought Vetronix.

I recently bought two scanners one a cornwell OTC Nemecises and a used snap on solus pro .The snapon is one update behind .9.2.It can record and has 3 diff options on how to store a recording SD flash or internally.It is a pain to use all the diff keys,Its makes it slow to use and I don't usally use it for a quick check.Also I noticed that alot of specal tests like activating sol.ect are hit or miss.And air bags is a joke unless you just what to check a code or clear a code,data list is the joke most the info in the few vechile I,ve checked was totally worthless.After my experiences I can give you this word of advice DO NOT put your hard earned money out unless you can get a in depth demo and a week test drive and pay attension to details.Good Luck
