Launch Techline Connect from your PC

With Techline Connect, GM’s integrated Service Technician Diagnostic Scan Tool application, dealership service and parts personnel have access to GDS 2, Service Programming (SPS) and Service Information (SI) from a single launcher on their PC desktop.

Although TLC may be saved as a GlobalConnect shortcut, the app will be launched from the user’s PC after download and installation.

Techline Connect will install components to the local PC, including Java and the application. A Techline Connect User Guide also is included in the application download. It includes installation instructions and an overview of the application.
