    One thing.

    Is "Clear all faults" available on HEXv2? - It is not acailable on micro-can.

    Correct -- not until you encounter cars that the HEX+CAN isn't fully compatible with, i.e. a few 2016 and newer (pretty much all MLB-II and a few very highly optioned MQBs).

    I would think so, but I'll have to check to be absolutely sure.

    1) Is the Hex-V2 a USB 2.0 device or USB 3.0? I'm hoping that you upgraded the USB interface to meet the current standards.

    2) Is the Hex-V2 out of beta, or will there be physical product changes over the next few months? In other words, is this the final retail release?

    3) Will it work with the current VCDS v16 software?

    Thanks, and I'm excited about this new VCDS!

    It enumerates as an HID device. It's compatible with any USB port.

    It is not a Beta product, and we don't expect any hardware changes.

    I can [Clear all DTCs] using the CAN command on my bench with a V2.

    Is hex-net still considered the 'premier' product or will this supersede hex-net moving forward?

    Is there any foreseeable reason why someone with a hex-net would need or want to switch to hex v2?

    HEX-V2 is quite literally a HEX-NET without the extra hardware needed for wireless or VCDS Mobile. It should perform identically to a USB-connected HEX-NET.

    Yes, the HEX-NET is still the top-of-the-line product.

    I cannot imagine why someone would want to do that. They would be giving up WiFi and VCDS-Mobile and gaining absolutely nothing in terms of functionality.

    Conceptually yes, but not quite literally. The HEX-V2 does have a completely different circuit board. There is much commonality in terms of the CPU and the circuitry that communicates with the car, but the HEX-V2 does not have the WiFi module, the on-board storage, or the fancy power supply needed to support the power-hungry WiFi module and the low-power mode that allows a HEX-NET to be permanently installed in a car.

    could you clarify, are operations in the basic function area unlimited, and those on the right side, advanced functions, subject to the VIN count?
