wi-TECH, Tech Authority, and Chrysler MicroPOD II

AE Tools recently had to make adjustments regarding how wiTECH and Tech Authority Subscriptions are offered to the Aftermarket..

The two subscriptions are no longer bundled together, as was available in the past. Currently, users must purchase wiTECH and Tech Authority separately. Below is a detailed explanation of wiTECH and Tech Authority, along with pricing and options available for users. You will also find information about Chrysler’s MicroPOD II.

1.  wi-TECH License
*   wi-TECH is a required annual subscription that grants you permission to use a wi-TECH device, such as a MicroPOD II, wi-TECH POD, or Star Mobile, for diagnostic purposes. This does not include flash programming or service information
*   Annual renewal is $1445.95 per serial on a wired wi-TECH device (each wired wi-TECH tool requires a separate wi-TECH license). This renewal is available through AE Tools.
*   If a MicroPOD II is purchased for $3,295 through AE Tools or one of our approved vendors, it includes the wi-TECH license for 1 year.

2.  Tech Authority Subscription
*   Tech Authority is a subscription-based software that provides the user with Chrysler/Fiat Service Information (wiring diagrams, TSBs, etc), Flash Programming Files, and Fiat-style key programming for vehicles with the rolling code systems. It also includes access to web-based Chrysler factory training..
*   Tech Authority can be purchased annually for $1,800. This annual subscription is available through AE Tools. The Tech Authority subscription is also available in monthly and 3-day subscriptions for $250 and $35, respectively. These offerings are available directly from www.obd2tool.com

3.  Chrysler MicroPOD II
*   Chrysler’s MicroPOD II is a dongle-style device that offers 100 percent CAN coverage for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Fiat vehicle platforms. This is the same diagnostic and programming tool the dealerships are using. It replaces the StarMobile, StarScan, and wi-TECH POD.
*   The Car Diagnostic Tool MicroPOD II is $3,295 and includes one-year of wi-TECH licensing. At the conclusion of one-year, wi-TECH must be renewed in order to use the MicroPOD II device. After the expiration, the tool will no longer function until the renewal is paid. The renewal fee is $1445.95, annually. Both the MicroPOD II and wi-TECH licensing is available through AE Tools and approved vendors.
*   The MicroPOD II comes with a one-year warranty. Warranty is void if physical damage is present (removal of USB connector, hardware removed, case opened, etc.). After the one-year warranty, if you have issues with your tool, it can be mailed in and replaced with a brand new device for $1,100 (requires an active wi-TECH subscription).
