DST-i Pass-through Device
2. AsTech remote scanning with HDS/-i-HDS Software
3. AirPro remote scanning with HDS/i-HDS Software

5. Sublet to dealer or third party running HDS/i-HDS Software

Additionally, for easier audits, shops will want to be sure to keep the actual "All DTC" report and any supporting documentation in their files, in addition to the invoice regardless of which scanning method is used.
