This year has proved to be a challenging time for many businesses navigating the COVID pandemic. One of the many things that 2020 has taught us at OTR Performance is to never stop planning, learning, and innovating during times of uncertainty. OTR is committed to its purpose which is to empower owner-operators, fleet managers, and technicians to perform advanced diagnostics easier and faster than ever before.
Introducing the next generation of diagnostic tools for your vehicle, OTR Diagnostics – a mobile diagnostic tool.
OTR Diagnostics is a mobile diagnostics application that you can use on your Apple or Android* device to perform advanced vehicle diagnostics. You can connect to your vehicle, read active fault codes, and perform dealer level functions right from your mobile device.
What makes OTR Diagnostics stand out?
At OTR Performance we have a constant drive for innovation and we are always listening to our customers’ feedback so that we can provide better products. At OTR we have been performing vehicle diagnostics since 2012 and we have put all our efforts into making sure we provide the information you need to perform diagnostics yourself on your vehicle. Therefore, we created OTR Diagnostics.
What can OTR diagnostics do in the field?
OTR Diagnostics is your new go-to diagnostic tool for repairs. You can use OTR diagnostics to connect, read fault codes, generate a report, and perform advanced commands such as resetting fault codes, resetting aftertreatment systems, and performing forced DPF regens on most engine makes and models. OTR is committed to adding new functionality to the app that empowers you to perform advanced diagnostics faster and easier than ever before.
What is the purpose of a mobile diagnostic app if I have dealer-level software?
Great question! We love dealer level diagnostic software. However, some dealer level software requires internet access at all times, while other dealer level software requires constant updates that never seen to happen when you have the time. Not to mention the equipment is expensive and you have to have extensive knowledge of the program to perform the diagnostics that you are looking for. Moreover, there isn’t a one size fits all solution in the diagnostic marketplace so if you have multiple trucks with different engines you need numerous diagnostic software at your disposal to perform diagnostics.
With OTR Diagnostics you just need this one software. Depending on the plan you chose you can perform diagnostics on various engines from the same application at one flat rate.
Not sure which OTR Diagnostic plan is right for you? Just give us a call at (586) 799-4375 and we can go through your operations and figure out what is best for you.
What hardware do you need for OTR Diagnostics?
You need a Bluetooth adapter called the OTR Link to be able to use OTR Diagnostics. In order to provide the most powerful and secure wireless connection to your vehicle, we partnered with Nexiq Technologies to provide the hardware. The hardware for OTR diagnostics is called OTR Link powered by Nexiq.
Other than the OTR Link all you need is your phone or tablet.
How do I get started with OTR Diagnostics?
OTR has developed custom-tailored yearly subscription plans that fit different levels of diagnostic coverage and features. We always start on what your needs are and develop a package that fits your needs for diagnostics.
Let’s start with how many vehicles you have.
If you only have one (1) vehicle then you might want to be on the Plus plan which is catered to individuals with one (1) vehicle.
If you have a fleet of vehicles or run a repair facility, then you may want to look into the Pro plan subscription. This plan allows you to connect to multiple vehicles giving you all the access you need to perform diagnostics.

We recommend using the diagnostics packages that bundle the hardware + subscription when you proceed to purchase.
At any time, if you feel overwhelmed with selecting the right package for your needs, please reach out to us via chat, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling: (586) 799-4375
Until next time 👋
Stay safe, stay healthy, & God bless
