Using only OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) scan tools is an easy decision when working with Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). Why the decision is easy comes down to several key points:
- Precision and Accuracy: OEM scan tools are tailor-made for specific vehicle models, offering unparalleled precision and accuracy in diagnostics and calibrations. This is crucial for ADAS, where even slight inaccuracies can significantly impact system performance and safety.
- Full System Integration: They provide comprehensive access to all systems and modules of a vehicle. This means you can diagnose and calibrate all aspects of ADAS, which might not be fully accessible with third-party tools.
- Up-to-Date Software and Features: Manufacturers regularly update their tools to support the latest models and technologies. This ensures that you have the most current and relevant diagnostic capabilities.
- Manufacturer Support and Training: OEM tools often come with direct manufacturer support and training. This can be invaluable for understanding complex ADAS functionalities and troubleshooting intricate issues.
- Compliance with Warranty and Standards: Using OEM tools ensures compliance with vehicle warranty requirements and industry standards, particularly important for newer vehicles or those still under warranty.
- Reliability and Trust: There’s a certain level of trust and reliability associated with using tools created by the vehicle’s manufacturer, reducing the risk of incorrect diagnostics or improper calibrations.
- Customer Confidence: Especially in a professional setting, using OEM tools can enhance customer confidence and potentially the resale value of the vehicle, as it assures proper and manufacturer-approved maintenance.
- Safety, Safety, Safety: Not using OEM scanning tools for ADAS work pose several dangers and risks, primarily due to the critical nature of these systems such as the fact that even slight inaccuracies can significantly impact system performance and safety.
For Smart Express, we spare no expense when safety is on the line. OEM scan tools offer superior precision, comprehensive coverage, and the backing of the vehicle manufacturer, making them the preferred choice for working with complex and sensitive systems like ADAS.
