BMW group tester one (GT1) is offered to the aftermarket in the same specification that is currently supplied to BMW franchised dealers. It is special-purpose tool of BMW Series.
Gt1 is supplied with a Pentium based laptop PC on a Windows platform connected to a high specification communications and measurement interface.
GT1 can complete coverage of ALL BMW systems. One thing that can only be done using the GT1, this function is called Electronic Control Unit (ECU) programming and configuration. Many of the original electronic systems on modern vehicles can now be re programmed using software; historically any changes to rectify software problems would involve a new ECU which would be purchased from the parts department and that is the only way that the independent market today is able to overcome these problems. The BMW GT1 system allows you re programme all BMW car ECU's to fix software or to install a blank ECU to a repaired vehicle. GT1 is the only system that allows you to do this and is absolutely essential if working on Freelander, the GT1 is also the only system that provides all diagnostics and programming for the very latest BMW launched this year.
BMW GT1 software kit comprises of five system, TIS system. DIS data system ;diagnosis system. Measuring system and manangement system. You can to test and check data information same time in GT1
Test function; Read faulty code, clear faulty code, data stream, activate state, programming, component test, maintenance data information, components location, wiring diagram etc, TIS AND DIS ARE SUPPLY all of system diagram of all of BMW car, Components location, maintainence method and coding information etc. Can do completely of Bmw car system.

Latest diagnostic version of software
This diagnostic equipment is manufactured by Siemens as a part of their SDIS Diagnostic and Information System. This is the most complete system tester for BMW's. It reads and resets faults, reads component values, triggers components (actuator test), substitutes values, identifies computer hardware and software, performs coding and programs computers. It is also integrated into the service writers program and the parts department ordering programs. It covers all systems found in the car that can be accessed by electronic means. New versions have a satelite uplink for updating information and programs.
Contains Technical Information System (TIS)...this includes technical literature of repair manuals (from E36), Service Information Bulletins (from 1988), Technical Reference Information Bulletins (from 1988), Technical Data, Tightening Torques It uses a 486DX2/50MHz running on a UNIX based operating system. Monitor is a touch screen type. 500mb hard drive, one 3 & 1/2" floppy disc drive. Two CD ROM drives. Two Future expansion slots. Contains backup batteries, Air conditoning unit, printer, MoDiC station, and various diagnostic cables.
Integrated Service Information Server (ISIS)
will come as an enclosed server rack for protection. Included are two high
performance servers, an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), and a 100 Gigabit
In its introductory stage, ISIS will be loaded with the first version of Integrated Service Technical Application (ISTA-formerly known as ANTARES). The first version of ISTA (1.1) will encompass the Repair Manuals currently housed on the TIS website. Look for in-depth ISTA information in a future Service Information. Access to ISTA information can be accomplished via any ISID or properly configured PC with access to the workshop network.
The ultimate configuration of ISIS will also be a central storage point for all Technical Information, diagnostic and programming data updated automatically via JET stream. Updated information is utilized by all workshop equipment.
Integrated Service Information Display (ISID) – ISID will eventually replace the GT1 and DISplus. ISID will support the new service processes with numerous functions of diagnosis and later programming. ISID will have a direct data connection with ISIS. It is lighter than a GT1, costs less per unit and is standard with 2 batteries-one of which is housed in the docking station for charging.
Integrated Communication Optical Module (ICOM) – ICOM is a high performance vehicle interface that will take the place of the GT1/DISplus diagnostic head and will eventually phase out the OPS/OPPS heads. While it supports the new service processes, it also is integrated to older model series. ICOM will have a direct data connection with ISIS and runs wireless at 100 megabit as opposed to the 2 megabit existing wireless 2G network, for a performance improvement of 50 times. It is lighter than it predecessors and costs less per unit.
