Anyone who's got an official UK Autel MaxiDAS DS708 scan tool knows it's just brilliant on Jaguar and LandRover. Well, now it's also become easier to use. Although the DS708 routinely autosearched the VIN number on most makes, when it came to LandRover and Jaguar, you had to key it in yourself - but not any more!
At the start of interrogating modern examples of both makes, a button now appears on the DS708 screen, marked "Read". On pressing this, the machine displays the VIN number within a few seconds, leaving you merely to accept the number and press on. In my book, that represents a really worthwhile improvement.
