New Shop just started business looking for Diagnostic/Coder
Posted to Tool & Equipment Forum on 9/6/2014 24 Replies

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and read few posts. Thank you all for sharing your knowledge.

I live in city that is far from the US and I wish to learn and have some expert advise from you.

I did a local research about diagnostic tools/OE tools, etc. I've visited few shops and diagnostic product dealers. I gained few info that I would share with you:

I was interested in both Pegisys & Verus. However, when I contacted OTC distributor, they told me that Pegisys will not work in my city specially when it connects to the net, when sees the IP address outside the US, it stops a lot of internet functions.

There is No factory tooling sales or support in here and no one is selling it so this is not an option.

I'm looking for an advice on couple of diagnostic handhelds or PC softwares that can do most and can function outside the US. I wish to have handhelds or PC software that can do coding/programming.

There is no much of training facilities around here and not much of technical support. I will rely on online or DVD videos to hone my skills when using the diagnostic tools though.

I believe most of the cars here are complaint with the European standard including GM, FORD, Dodge, etc.

I would appreciate any positive input or help.
