The new system, called ED, Engine Diagnostics, allows service technicians to employ any hand-held Personal Data Assistant equipped with the Palm Operating System to analyze and adjust every engine function on their customers' Evinrude direct-injection engines manufactured since 1999. The system also allows for a database of engine specifications.

Prior to this at least a lap top was required.

Hi Tom,

Do you know if that tool available at that price to engine owners or is it just for authorized dealers? That would be a great thing to have if you owned an engine that supported it!

JimH,

I do not believe it is going to be made available to Ficht owners. Though depending on the customer's relationship with their dealer some Palms will probably find there way into the hands of owners.

We already have the laptop program and frankly it tells you a lot but as far as self service repairs you had better own the manuals and have access to the current service bulletins. Your still going to have to go through your dealer for most parts associated with the RAM Ficht injection system.

Tom
