wiTECH Diagnostic Application version 16.01

What is new in wiTECH 16.01

2016 MY Vehicles support

wiTECH 16.01 includes support for 2016 MY Vehicles. The following 2016 MY vehicles will be supported:

4C, BF, BK, BU, D2, DD, DF, DJ, DP, DS, DV, DX, FB, FF, FF BEV, J8, JC, JF, JK, KL, LA, LD, LX, MK, NY, PF, R7, RT, UF, VF, VM, ZD

Changes to the installation process

Starting with wiTECH 16.01 you will be asked to select the country that you are located in.  This must be accurately selected to ensure your wiTECH application functions properly.  Failure to do so may inhibit the functionality of the diagnostic tool. 

wiTECH microPOD Device Operating System Separation

Due to new and required security updates, microPOD devices will no longer be compatible with BOTH wiTECH 16.01 and the web-based wiTECH 2.0 application at the same time. Please refer the diagram below:

Note: wiTECH 2.0 Application has been deployed to only FCA franchised dealer users in the US and Canada

Please be advised that with wiTECH 16.01 release the user will be prompted with a choice to convert the microPOD II operating system for use with wiTECH 1.0 (version 16.01 and later) only. The prompt will appear next time the microPOD II is used with wiTECH Diagnostic Application if the user selected US or Canada as the country during the installation of wiTECH 16.01. Please refer the screen image below.

If you have just one microPOD, we highly recommend that you use your VCI Pod with wiTECH 16.01 and continue to use your microPOD with wiTECH 2.0.  The microPOD device is now easily affordable and we strongly recommend that your dealerships purchase an adequate number of microPODs for the technicians.

Please email witechsupport@dcctools.com if you have any questions on the wiTECH 16.01 release updates.
