GM MDI Product Launch
This past summer, ETAS began to roll-out the new MDI (Multiple Diagnostic Interface) for General Motors. The MDI is the third generation diagnostic service tool, based on ETAS’ new VCI (Vehicle Communication Interface) platform (please also refer to RealTimes 1/2007, p. 13). It will include over 14,000 units to be distributed to GM dealers worldwide over the next 12 months as part of GM’s Essential Tool Program. Each dealer will receive one MDI, but many dealers are expected to purchase multiple units to further enhance the efficiency of their service department by diagnosing and reprogramming vehicles more quickly.
