The software for the GR8 Battery Diagnostic Station is updated periodically to fix software bugs and enhance the tool’s function. You can now use the Midtronics GR8 update wizard to download software and firmware to your GR8 using a PC and the Internet. It is extremely important to use the latest GR8 software to ensure that the current battery testing and diagnostic procedures are used.
Honda is also introducing a new policy to ensure that GR8 testers are update promptly. The GR8 software must now be updated within three days of receiving notification from an iN message or other Honda communication.
