We are looking at updating the laptop and getting diagnostic software . My boss is recommending JPRO . We have some cat's and cummins . We are also needing allison and bendix brake programs . This has it all and wondered if anybody has used JPRO and did you like it or not . Could you give specifics about yaa or naaa regarding JPRO

We used JPRO at the last shop I was at. I liked it a lot. Everything is in one place and you can access the OEM software straight from JPRO, as long as you have the subscriptions to the OEM software. One thing I wish we had was Nextstep. I am not familiar with it, but it looked like it could be useful in diagnosing these quirks in these buses, since the manufacturer wiring diagrams and locations are a complete disaster.
And congratulations on your new position! God has a reason for everything.

We ditched all the OEM software and went with this. They will load all the software for everything you have to include your cars and trucks. You can do most everything with it.

JPRO is the best solution for non stealership shops, only with Allison you cant reset filter light but that can be done with the shifter
key on shift from R N R N D N R N AND WITH IH same but foot on brake

OEM trained in wiring and all engine platforms for 20 years
