Vocom II Update news

December, 2018

Updates to the Windows driver software (SW) and hardware device firmware (FW) for the Vocom II (88894000) have been released to address issues related to J1939 communication, operational performance and automatic update of Vocom II FW. These updates are found in Vocom II SW version “4.0.0.925”

For new Vocom II devices and Tech Tool clients that have not been updated recently it is recommended that this be done asap.

Tech Tool 2.7 includes the Vocom II version “4.0.0.925” with updates being handled in the Tech Tool Client Update (CLUP).  The Vocom II will be updated automatically from TT 2.7 forward.

Tech Tool 2.6 however requires that Vocom II SW version “4.0.0.925” be installed manually to get fixes and enable future updates via CLUP. (available for download from the www.premiumtechtool.com support page. (link)  )
