Dear Users and Partners,
We have introduced some new handy features on our service portal:
- A new logic for displaying CAN buses in car files — we have replaced CAN bus names in the Connection points tab with Connection 1 or Connection 2. In the Features tab, we have replaced CAN bus names with CAN-1 or CAN-2.
- A new design of car files where you can switch between configurations — if several options for connecting a device are available at once, now you can choose a connection configuration.
- A new image compression process introduced on the service portal — now the size of installation maps is only 15-20 MB.
1. A new logic for displaying CAN buses in car files
On our service portal, CAN buses used to be displayed as Engine CAN bus or Body CAN bus. Still, manufacturers of different car brands use various CAN bus names, which made it difficult for users to navigate.
Now the logic for displaying possible options for connecting a device to the CAN bus is much simpler:
- We have replaced CAN bus names in the Connection points tab with abstract names, such as Connection 1 or Connection 2.
- In the Features tab, we have replaced CAN bus names with CAN-1, CAN-2, CAN-3, LIN-1, or LIN-2 (depending on the number of CAN/LIN buses in a device).
The new logic also enables you to display the availability of features and statuses for each specific CAN or LIN bus. You used to ask, "Which features or statuses will be added if I connect a second CAN bus?” Now it is clear right from the start which features or statuses are available in a CAN bus.
2. A new design of car files where you can switch between configurations
The car files used to contain information regarding connection options but this was not indicated in any way, so it was impossible to quickly detect or choose the right one.
Now, if the device supports several connection options, the Connection points tab offers you a choice between the configurations. For example: Configuration 1 or Configuration 2.
3. A new image compression process introduced on the service portal
Currently, our service portal compresses images while not compromising the quality. We have managed to reduce the size of installation maps by 80-90%.
The installation maps used to amount to 100 MB but now they are only 15-20 MB in size.
