On Thursday Noregon announced its second major update for JPRO Professional, its in-shop diagnostic and troubleshooting tool. The release, JPRO Professional 2021 v2, is available for purchase and active JPRO subscribers can update at no additional cost.
“Trucks continue to become more complex and therefore more difficult to diagnose and repair. To alleviate the issues this causes, we ensure each JPRO Professional release adds tools and features to make technicians’ jobs easier,” says Jason Hedman, JPRO product manager, Noregon. “For example, this release helps techs quickly identify performance and health-related issues on vehicle systems that affect the cost of ownership or could later sideline an otherwise healthy vehicle.”
After setting the standard with its aftertreatment diagnostic screen, Noregon says JPRO’s latest release offers similar user-friendly features and design to help technicians diagnose issues related to coolant, oil, and fuel systems. These interactive screens present live key data points in easy-to-follow diagrams to help uncover irregularities.

Additionally, Noregon enhanced JPRO’s ability to submit vehicle repair information to third-party databases to create cases and begin warranty submissions. Starting with this release, authorized users can submit information to Trimble’s TMT/TMW service, in addition to existing databases such as Decisiv, Bendix, and others, the company says.
“JPRO should be the first tool a technician reaches for when a truck arrives at the shop. Regardless of the make and model, they can triage, diagnose, and troubleshoot with JPRO in most instances. To expect a technician to stay in a single application throughout the entire process means giving them all the necessary tools to do so. Integrating with major OE databases is an essential part of that process,” says Hedman.
Noregon adds the release also features updated coverage and new bi-directional tests for many major component manufacturers, including emerging advanced driver safety assistance (ADAS) systems.
