Hello Welcome to JA!
Yes you can run the pocket tec off a lap top
Is there anything required other than a palm desktop program
you will need a program let me see if its still avalable they no longer use the pocket tec so that program might be gone . Give me 5 min ill call nexiq right now
Ok im on hold with them
Are you still on hold
ServiceMaxx w/IC-4 is what you need and a cable too
Can this be downloaded on line? and do you know what cable end is
Let me see if i can get the number and a link to get it from
this is the part number for the cable you will need
just a sec ill see if you can get the program on line or if its a CD only
Stay away from the OTC stuff there not that great
Not a fan of OTC either
Here is a link to http://www.dieselsolution.com/
They no longer do any dowmn loads but the cd and copy rights are under 100.00
Here is something i use in my shop its a great tool http://www.jprofleetproducts.com/
the cable is under 100.00 too
So I would look for ServiceMaxx w/IC-4 at dieselsolution.com
Yes you can get the cd there
I will look at your shop tool as well. We have a number of the Hand Held CAT tec would like to get rid of the hand held hence the original question; but it maybe since Cat isn't supporting the tec that we may have to move on to something else.
Thanks for your swift reply
Than you I just went with the Jpro sence we work on everything it is a money saving tool!
Here is what were using now http://www.jprofleetproducts.com/kits/jpro_desktopkit.asp
