Noregon releases third major JPRO update of 2022

Nov. 17, 2022
The latest update from the heavy-duty diagnostics provider includes features that keep pace with the development of integrated systems in vehicles as well as an efficient interface.

Heavy- and medium-duty diagnostics provider Noregon has released the third major update of 2022 for JPRO, the company's in-shop diagnostic and troubleshooting application for all makes and models of commercial vehicles.

Building on prior releases, the update includes new bi-directional tests and commands for the latest components and systems, including Detroit Diesel transmissions, Wabco advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), Bendix trailer brakes and ADAS, and more.

Because of the increase in onboard sensors and technology, Sandeep Kar, Noregon chief strategy officer, estimated the technician-to-diagnostic-tool ration will jump from the current 4-to-1 to 2-to-1 in 2025.

To further support ADAS and other systems, as well as an overall holistic diagnostic approach, the release includes an addition to the application’s Subsystem Diagnostics feature.

“Subsystem Diagnostics is a feature in JPRO that helps technicians focus on certain parts of a vehicle–such as fuel or aftertreatment systems–and chart live values related to those components,” explained Jason Hedman, product manager at Noregon . “Users can now utilize this feature to diagnose ADAS components.”

Additionally, JPRO now informs users when the connected vehicle may have a NHTSA recall.

“We constantly look for ways to help fleets improve vehicle safety,” Hedman said. “Because recalls are typically issued for safety concerns, knowing a vehicle may be at risk while it’s already in the shop allows a fleet to approve the recall work before putting the truck back in service.”

Noregon noted that JPRO features an intuitive interface to its guided diagnostic features to offer a better user experience.

“Commercial vehicles have become incredibly complex, so we continue to look for ways to make it easier for technicians of any skill level to diagnose and troubleshoot them,” Hedman said. “We’re excited to add a feature called Most Likely Repair to JPRO’s Fault Guidance troubleshooting module. Based on the collective faults on the vehicle, Fault Guidance identifies the potential repair procedures, and ranks them on the likelihood it is the correct procedure.”

Active JPRO subscribers can update their software at no additional cost.
