GDS 2 Core and Diagnostic Package Updates

The Global Diagnostic System (GDS) 2 receives periodic core updates throughout the year. The latest version, 15.0.14700, released on August 29, 2016 contains several software bug fixes as well as major application changes that impact the way GDS 2 looks and functions. These updates are available when logging into TIS2Web and launching GDS 2 from the TIS2Web home page.


In addition to the periodic core update, GDS 2 receives an updated diagnostic package once a month. The current diagnostic package is GM Global v2016.9.1 and includes updated information on individual vehicle platforms. The updated diagnostic package is available in GDS 2 by clicking the “Update” button or selecting “Manage Diagnostic Packages.”


The version numbers can be seen in the lower left corner of GDS 2. (Fig. 12)

These updates work together so it’s important to have the latest core version as well as the latest diagnostic package installed to ensure the all fixes are in place. Using the new software updates minimize the chance of encountering errors when launching or using GDS 2.


If any issues are encountered with GDS 2, update both the core version and the diagnostic package. If any issues are not resolved after performing the updates, contact the Techline Customer Support Center (TCSC) at 1-800-828-6860 (English) or 1-800-503-3222 (French).
