    Major Software Updates

    TGS3s Dashboards

    Two new types of dashboards have been implemented:

    • The first indicates how the control units are connected with each other
    • The second indicates their position in the vehicle.

    They can be viewed from the TGS3s system scan and allow launching the Diagnosis directly by selecting the systems that show any errors.

    Our team was excited to see the system scan’s display showing the location of control units, see below:
