DonL just how good is the pocket fleet software? I am currently searching for an indepth scan system as close to Manufactuers tools as possible.
I was looking at the site and like what I am seeing. I noticed the info went from the PC and then something about a Navistar tool. Is that part of the pocket fleet tool or a seperate tool.
I maintain a mixed fleet of about 500 trucks and equipment for a client. Getting International data and info is driveing me nuts. They are the most tight fisted and lipped people I have ever tried to work with.

PF-Diagnose works very well with Navistar, The full HD and Full HD with OBD-II editions will perform KOEO Standard Tests and KOEO Injector tests on Navistar, It is also the only 3rd party software that will show Actual and desired Injection Control Pressures on the DT Series engines. It will also read EGR Position Volts, Fuel Inlet Pressure, Fuel differential Pressure, EGR Position and more. The only program that works better on International is OEM Software. PF-Diagnose also has an ESC Library of fault codes and supports Byte 7 and 8 so it will read ESC (Electrical System Controller) Faults, Dash Faults, ABS and Transmission faults.
I have a pile of International PDF Manuals so if you need assistance, you can always send me an email or post it here, I am Diamond Certified for International.
There are atleast 3 International dealerships that use PF-Diagnose for Triage and mobile use.
PF-Diagnose will perform Standard I/O and Injector Buzz tests on International DT466,530, Maxxforce 7, Maxxforce DT, and VT365 but no Balance Tests. The Cyl Balance test is a proprietary test that is activated through a series of codes that the manufacturers do not share, each engine is different in the way it is activated and what codes are sent so adding this function in Heavy Duty Vehicles is next to impossible. I would like to do it and I have been looking for the code sequences but no luck so far.
If anyone knows the sequence for any specific engine or engine group, let me know...
