Texa Scanner Nano-S


Texa Scanner Nano-S

Designed to meet the needs of the mechanic

Navigator NANO S is a latest generation vehicle interface from TEXA that lets you run all kinds of diagnostics on cars, light commercials, motorcycles, scooters, quads and jetskis.

Every aspect of the Navigator NANO S has been carefully designed and developed to fully satisfy the needs of the modern garage and to allow mechanics to complete all diagnostic tests quickly and easily.

Navigator Nano S is the most advanced wireless device for cars and light commercial vehicles fitted with OBD sockets. The advanced miniaturization techniques used have allowed TEXA to reduce the tool size and weight by more than 85%, compared with a traditional solution, whilst leaving depth of the diagnosis potential unchanged.

The Navigator Nano S belongs to a new generation of devices characterized by three key elements:

  • Reduced dimensions: increased practicality due to reduced size and ergonomic form, the Navigator nano plugs directly into the 16 pin diagnosis socket
  • Wireless: providing Bluetooth communication to the Handheld or PC display with power from the diagnostic socket, the technician can work freely around the vehicle
  • Self-diagnosis for cars and light commercials: the TEXA IDC5 operating software provides diagnosis software and information for a comprehensive range of vehicles and systems

The Navigator nano has been developed according to the TEXA philosophy of two-unit diagnosis, to provide practical and versatile solutions, and can be used with a range of TEXA display units including AXONE 4 & AXONE MINI. These characteristics allow the technician to gain the maximum benefit from their diagnostic tools, reducing the time required to complete the repair process.

The Navigator nano operates in conjunction with IDC5 software, the TEXA operating platform that combines diagnosis potential with a database of supporting information. The technician in fact has a whole range of additional information at his disposal, such as wiring diagrams, technical data sheets, component sheets and bulletins, specifying the correct procedures to assist in repair the most common failures.


Robustness and attention to detail

Robustness combined with attention to detail and the latest technical solutions.

This was the brief given to the TEXA development team assigned to creating the Navigator NANO S. All phases of design and development concentrated on achieving this ambitious objective and on producing an extraordinary diagnostic interface packed with innovative technology.

New design features make the Navigator NANO S more reliable than ever in connecting to and disconnecting from vehicles.

A powerful inspection light lets you illuminate the diagnostic socket and make it clearly visible wherever it is located on the vehicle. Function LEDs are located on the front of the unit, facing the mechanic, for easy identification and reading.

At the end of the diagnostic tests, Navigator NANO S emits a distinctive beep to remind you, and to prevent it being forgotten inside the vehicle.

Diagnosis without compromise

The Navigator NANO S is a perfect match for all the TEXA display solutions that use the extraordinary IDC5 operating system, and can run even the most advanced functions, including:

– TGS3s, for the automatic scanning of all diagnosable ECUs on a vehicle*;
– VIN SCAN, for the automatic identification of the vehicle from its VIN;
– “SOLVED PROBLEMS” powered by Google
– … and all other IDC5 functions.
