    Many Thanks for the double check!!

    It is a place to enter a "Feature Code", which is a way that we initiate changes to the license or registration of the interface, which then must be completed on-line, via our server.

    My new V2 turned up today after ordering it late yesterday!! Got it registered as per instructions & it works VERY quickly on the car!!

    Quick question thought, as I am an existing registered user for my old cable (which I am selling privately) how is this new cable "tagged" to my online profile on here, as I tried the "cloud" option but that failed!

    PS Gendan have a superb email verification which they send out when the item is dispatched...what are they drinking in Swansea??

    Cloud stuff is only applicable to the HEX-NET and VCDS-Mobile. I just manually merged the records in our internal CRM database.

    That's what I had at the back of my mind, but thought I'd ask.

    Once again thanks for clearing it up.

    Hello,

    I'm looking to purchase a VCDS and I'm slightly confused about the hardware differences between the HEX-NET and HEX-V2. I've read here that they are for the most part the same except the V2 not having on-board storage, wifi capabilities, and a different power supply for those functions, which really only matter currently for the VCDS Mobile. I see that both HEX-NET and HEX-V2 have 32 bit processors, but is there a time where the on-board storage would provide additional capability beyond the Mobile interface? Is buying a HEX-NET a better decision for the future in terms of ability to meet future demands for the device? Or does it come down to the simple answer that if the HEX-V2 needs to be updated on the hardware side, the HEX-NET will require the same updates?

    With the HEX-V2, you always have the requirement of a PC. It stores the stuff needed.

    With the HEX-NET, the VCDS-Mobile software runs from within the device. It needs a place to store data locally. So, there is memory in the HEX-NET owing to the fact that it may not be connected to a computer and is operating on a device which it uses for the human interface.

    The on board storage is not a limiting factor in our minds. The choice between the two is mainly about convenience. The HEX-V2 requires a Windows PC. The HEX-NET, while it too can run VCDS on the Windows PC, it is not required to do so owing to the second software package - VCDS-Mobile. VCDS-Mobile extends the operating platform to any device that has WiFi and web browser, making the HEX-NET much more convenient.

    The Ross-Tech plan is that the HEX-V2 and the HEX-NET will have the same coverage going forward. Can we guarantee that we will accomplish that? No. We can't know what the VAG engineers will do. But, based on what we do know, we are reasonably confident that for the next several years, we will be able to give the same vehicle coverage with both devices.
