Mac Tools has introduced the MDT 10, a diagnostic scanner built into an Android tablet.

Columbus, Ohio -- January 11, 2017 -- Mac Tools has introduced the MDT 10, a diagnostic scanner that the company says is built specifically for technicians.

The MDT 10 features coverage for more than 25,000 vehicle systems, according to Mac Tools, and can diagnose drivability issues on virtually any vehicle. The hardware device features an optically-bonded screen, a rear camera with flash, front camera, dual speakers and HDMI output to an external monitor. It comes in a tablet balanced specifically for one-handed operation. MDT 10 comes with a charging/docking station that allows the technician to work away from the vehicle.

A statement from Mac Tools says that increased workplace efficiency is realized with available on-tool repair information that provides full access to a new and extensive wiring-diagram database that displays in colour. Other new features include top reported DTC fixes, drive cycles, and maintenance reset procedures.

The MDT 10 is built into an Android chassis, providing a wireless vehicle connection that allows the technician ease of mobility to test components. The 10.4-inch screen comes standard, and provides high visibility even in direct sunlight.

MDT 10 provides enhanced on-tool resource information, scan and scope troubleshooting repair info and specific tech tips. It also provides embedded training videos and the advanced software enables a streamlined diagnostic process for any issues a technician may encounter with a wide array of additional features that include:

•    J-2534 device for OEM reprogramming/reflashing with separate PC and OEM software
•    Ability to display 16 data items, or graph eight data items simultaneously
•    Customized Datastream display, graph and colour for easy viewing
