Land Rover's IDS at Les Potts 

It was an objective from day one to supply the new Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS) on a portable computer which exceeded the outgoing Testbook T4 WDS (Worldwide Diagnostic System) for performance and reliability. Land Rover decided on the Panasonic Toughbook CF-18 which is renowned for its robustness and is used around the world in the most demanding situations.

Integrated Diagnostic SystemThe Integrated Diagnostic System (IDS) is the only equipment that provides complete diagnostic coverage of current and future Land Rover vehicles. The IDS package replaces the Worldwide Diagnostic System (WDS). The IDS application will perform the identical functions of the WDS and allows technicians to diagnose and service all Land Rover vehicles. As the new Land Rover dealer diagnostic tool IDS will be required to perform diagnostics on all Land Rover models from 1989 to the New Freelander 2 and beyond.
