Release Description

Bosch ADS 5.0 software update improves technician experience and increases reporting efficiency

  • Bosch's ADS 5.0 update will give users the ability to access module-specific Data Stream Items and Special Tests right from DTC Results screen.
  • With enhanced search functions, users will have the ability to sort and search saved reports by year, make, model, VIN and more.
  • The update eliminates the need to re-run scans when retrieving the latest scan results and toggling between reports and other screens.

Bosch, a leading global supplier of technology and services, today released the 5.0 software update for the ADS and ADS X series scan tools. The update further improves user experience by granting technicians the ability to access Module-Specific Data Stream Items and Special Tests directly from the DTC Results screen. The update will also allow technicians to sort and search saved reports using filters including year, make, model and other factors. Additionally, users will be able to increase reporting efficiency by accessing more options when conducting a report.

The latest ADS 5.0 software update was developed by leveraging feedback directly from technicians to improve overall experience, and adds the following functionality and optimizations:

Data Stream / Special Test Access from DTC Scan Results

Technicians will no longer need to exit the DTC Results screen to access the Module-Specific Data Stream Items or Special Tests pages, eliminating the need for technicians to memorize the module when performing a scan.

Last Scan Results and New Coverage

Technicians will no longer need to re-run a scan when retrieving the latest scan results and toggling between Scan Reports and other screens. After selecting Read DTCs, a pop-up window will appear allowing users to view or re-run a previous scan. The 5.0 update also includes new coverage for Ford models and all new General Motors vehicle systems, including the Ford EcoSport, E-Transit, Mustang Mach-E, Transit-150, Transit-250, Transit-350 and HD, and more.

Enhanced Sorting and Searching Options for Saved Reports

Users will now have the ability to sort saved reports by date, VIN, YMM and repair order. Additionally, technicians can search saved reports by year, make, model, VIN, repair order number, report date range, report type and scan mode. Technicians can now efficiently search and share vehicle reports without losing progress on current scans.
