    Alright,
    Thanks for the quick reply, Uwe.
    At the moment I am good with the VIN10 option, but you never know

    Hi,

    Is it possible to read engine blocks 208 and 209 with the VDCS lite version if it's registered?

    Regards

    Pete

    Yes, if VCDS-Lite talks to the ECU in and those blocks exist in that ECU, then the you can read them once it's registered.

    The cars a 2005 AUDI TT 3.2 V6.

    The unregistered version of VCDS is communicating with the car ok and the blocks definitely exist. So I'll take that as a yes. :-)

    Thanks for the quick response

    Bruce / Uwe, can you update us on this please

    However, VCDS-Mobile, which is what one would use on non-Windows platforms will remain in Beta for a while longer. I can't say right now how long it will take before we consider that a released product.

    Now if anyone outside the US, who is an active member of this forum (such as golfi_vend) wants to one in the meanwhile, and understands that we still consider it a Beta, I think we can accommodate them.

    If I buy a used HEX-NET unit from another user (he's only used one VIN), can I just go ahead and use it, or do I have to pay a fee to Ross-Tech to make it work?

    Yes it will work (check if it’s the 10 VIN or unlimited version) but you will not get support unless you pay $99 for it to be registered to you:

    You can sell the Interface, but PC-based activations and support are not transferable. If you have a "dumb" interface for VCDS-Lite and the purchaser wants the full-function version, he will have to register as a new user for $99. All of our Current Interfaces act as "dongles" for VCDS, so the software should be fully functional on any PC that meets our requirements. However, we only provide support to the original owner. If you sell your interface to a third party and that person wants to be a "registered user" (eligible for product support and upgrades), he will have to register with us for $99 here.

    Are there any special circumstances for this situation? I sold my wired Hex-Can to buy a Hex-Net. Since I'm already registered, could my buyer use the extra registration when I purchase the Hex-Net?

    I don't think the registration is transferrable; but obviously wait for the official RT line on this.
