The increasing use of smartphones in everyday life is reflected in the growing popularity of tablets in modern workshops. Sales of Android devices in particular are booming because they are considered to be fast, affordable, and – due to the multitude of apps available – versatile. As a result, Hella Gutmann Solutions (HGS) is launching mega macs ONE, a new system, which transforms a tablet with Android 6.0 or higher and minimum 7-inch screen, into a fully-fledged diagnostic tool.
Hella Gutmann Solutions, sister firm of the well-known automotive lighting supplier, sees TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems) as “one of the most significant technical developments to have impacted the tyre industry since the introduction of the run flat tyre”.
A number of diagnostic companies have been quick to develop TPMS programming tools, which are used when a faulty sensor has to be replaced and then then programmed and a “re-learning” process performed to ensure that the system as a whole is functioning correctly.
