Softing DTS.obd comprehensively covers on-board diagnostics, combining the functionality of an OBD Scan Tool as well as a data and bus monitor in a single tool. The type of bus connected can be detected or selected automatically. There are various analysis functions for the OBD modes available at any one time. Measured values can be updated manually or cyclically and logged for the purposes of documentation or external analysis (e.g. Excel spreadsheets). Parameters can be modified using symbolic names and sent to the relevant ECU for response analysis. Communication can be analyzed in entirety down to the very last detail and, if required, recorded at bus level (hexadecimal raw data) or on the application layer (symbolic representation). When used on a notebook, e.g. during a test drive, the font can be enlarged in several stages on the screen.
