Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has released Bravo 2.9, the latest update to its diagnostics software for the OTC Encore professional scan tool.
The update includes new features as well as additions in diagnostic capabilities and increased vehicle coverage. In total, the release adds coverage for 656 new systems and 2,240 new vehicle-ECU combinations.
Key enhancements include the ability to share and edit previously saved and auto-navigate the “View Saved Tests” feature to the location where AST/ASDTC/DTC shared reports are saved.
