SmartFlow on an iPad

We would like to welcome you to the AutoVitals family and congratulate you on taking an important step toward a more efficient digital shop. We know you will find the tablet based digital inspection to be a remarkable tool, and we want to make sure you are completely successful.

Below you will find detailed steps to:  Turn on and Configure your new iPad, Download and Install the DVI app, and Launch / Login to the DVI application.

Note: The screenshots may look a little different on your iPad depending on the version of IOS installed.

Setup your new iPad

Your new iPad comes un-configured so that you can customize it for you shop’s specific use. The following steps show you have to turn it on and configure the device. There are images of the screens that will appear at each step. Click on any image to show it larger.  You will need to know the name and password for your wireless network. You will also be asked to sign in with an Apple ID or iTunes account. You should create a new one to be used for your shop and do not use your personal iTunes .

Power on the Device

To begin you’ll have to turn on the device. To turn it on, push and hold the power button at the top right corner of the screen. If it does not go on right away hold the button until you see the Apple Logo. When you see the home screen follow the directions at the bottom of the screen and slide to the right to begin.

In the rare case that the iPad is not responding, you can reset the device by using the following process.

  • Press and hold the Power button and the HOME button in the bottom middle of the screen at the same time until the Apple logo appears (10-12 seconds).
  • Release both buttons and wait for the home screen to appear

Set Up iPad

You will want to setup this iPad as a new device. The option to restore device from the cloud would be used if you were recovering your previous data on an iPad that is being reset.

You will also be asked to enter an Apple ID. If you have not already created an Apple ID for your shop select Create a Free Apple ID.  This is going to be used for updating the device when needed and to download Apps from the App Store.  Also you probably do not want to use a personal Apple ID since devices sharing a single Apple ID will share photos apps and iTunes music. Continue following the pictures below to complete setting up your iPad.

Using the Inspection Sheets

4. Congratulations! You are now performing your first inspection using the DVI application. You will have different types of inspection sheets offered to you depending on the part of the vehicle you are working on. Below we can see that the technician was working on the road test for the vehicle. If the technician finds no problems, you simply tap the name of the area you were inspecting and a check mark will appear noting that all is well in that area. If you find something wrong, you will need to look under thew column titled “In Car.” Prior to you selecting anything, it will say “Select Condition.” You can press that to look at the options listed and choose what is wrong with that part of the vehicle. After completing your inspection, you can press submit located at the top right hand corner of the screen.
