We are looking to purchase software for our International fleet and I would like some opinions on what my fellow bus techs use and where you get it from. Our dealer isn't very helpful.
Thanks.

ServiceMAXX is the software you want. The dealer can get it for you or you can purchase it from www.tpxpowersource.com make sure you get the nexiq usb link interface adapter. you can use it will almost every manufaturer software.

I have gotten mine from my International dealer, currently have the pre Maxxforce Master Diagnostics installed on one computer, and ServiceMaxx Fleet Pro ready to be installed on my new computer. The ServiceMaxx does have an annual fee to keep it updated.

Why yes, the ORIGinal CHARGER is a Fastback

Thanks guys. I found think we will go with the one Bus Tech II mentioned. Like I said in my original post, our dealer isn't very helpful. In fact they are just plain SORRY. With dealers like that it is no wonder International and Navistar lost so much money last year.

Brian, What ever you do DO NOT buy the Nexiq iQ scanner. I had one they are crap.You can read through my old post all the rants and reviews I gave on it.
The USBLink works great for me with all the software so far.

You'll want this too for your GMCV with CAT.
