Good to know “ What is GDS2”:

GM-MDI-GDS2-1

GDS2 is simply a newer and better version than GDS1.

GDS2 requires renewing of the license to use it by visiting the Tis To WEB website at least once a month (if you have a yearly subscription).

Tis To Web as it is called is GM’s website to download the scan tool or reflash data to update a vehicles computer.

You download vehicle software to your laptop and then you run the vehicle choice or program to scan from your laptop with the MDI 2 as the interface between your laptop and the vehicle.

You do not HAVE to be ‘online’ to use Professional Diagnostic Tool GDS2, only download the latest software license to use it by visiting Tis To Web monthly.

When you start GDS2, the bottom of the screen shows how many days left till an update is required.

If expired, simply reset the date and time on your laptop/PC, then your license will be renewed and your GDS2 will work.
