    HEX-NET telling "porkies" after update!!

    OK - so this ain't your typical vehicle! Back-story: I just updated VCDS SW to the latest release version on my Surface Pro 7 together with an update of the dongle firmware on my trusty HEX-NET. I then connected to my MQB platform test-bench (in Access-Point mode) My test-bench is a mongrel...

    Dynamic environmental data - what is it?

    As the title implies, I'm trying to understand the part of the DTC detail information that's labelled "Dynamic environmental data". The entry sometimes appears in the list of other fault event measurements and its value seems to be a string of hexadecimal numbers - but with a variable Byte...

    Absent memory - might be helpful to others?

    I've had lots of interesting interactions with professional workshop folk that use VCDS, but a not uncommon topic of discussion since HEX-NET was first released is the number of times that staff forget to remove the dongle before the client collects his/her vehicle. Many use HEX-NET without the...

    MQB platform vehicles - have you ever wondered?

    It ain't often that a tweak appears on forums that is so impossibly simple yet also so innovative in using an existing pre-set factory facility for another purpose! I found such a tweak this morning in another place (posted by Japan Zero Liberty) and I couldn't resist sharing it here. I'm not...

    VCDS "Tag" number: what is it really?

    Gateway installation list: Automatic alignment function?

    Just a thought-bubble really - but is it possible to include an auto tool in VCDS software that aligns the installed modules in a vehicle with those modules that are registered with the CAN Gateway? Probably not helpful to more experienced VCDS users, but it might benefit the enthusiast market...

    Adaptation channels - search criteria?

    The current search function in VCDS for adaptation channels uses the channel name - and it's very useful for those modules with an ever increasing channel count. But is it possible to extend the function (I assume as an option) to search by setting value? I suspect that searching settings for...

    Ross-Tech's buisness model - what drives it?

    This has to be perhaps the most definitive statement on this forum about Ross-Tech's corporate value set? I thieved the statement below is from HERE - it's now closed, so I'm posting on this thread for want of a better place to make my observation. I also want to say that I'm not into...

    Impeachment - now it begins.............

    ^^^ Thought that I would provide space for an interesting development up there in USA given that I just heard on the news the official statement about impeachment plans. Seems that Nancy has changed her mind in previous stances regarding the action -to do with the Ukraine scandal and the...

    MQB platform - Security Codes - work in progress

    I'm not sure if anyone else has done the same - but in an attempt to coalesce the community's knowledge of SA codes for MQB platform vehicles into a single reference source, I have collected the "known" SA codes in the table below. This has been (and it remains) a work-in-progress and the...

    CP errors - can this sneaky approach work?

    I've recently been asked by a colleague on another forum to help with his retrofit of the rear-view camera on his mk7 Golf. In the process of trying to figure-out what was wrong, I was introduced to the hypothesis in the webpage HERE which claims to be a method for combating CP errors What an...

    Driving Shool Mode (DSM) on 5F modules with "Gen2" channels?

    Driving School Mode (DSM) on 5F modules with "Gen2" channels? I've been trying to help a local lad here in the Antipodes with DSM on his MIBII unit. As I also have this style 5F module on my A3 8V (virtual cockpit), I thought that I would simply follow the usual instructions without any...

    Adaptation channel - sort crieria?

    hmm........ I've long pondered how VCDS decides the priority listing of adaptation channels in the newer style reports which include "Tags" (both in admap lists and on the screen). It's clear that the primary "influencer" in this decision process is the numeric value of the "Primary Tag". But...

    2018 World Cup - Winner?

    I've read the rules for Uwe's Bar and I can find no overt prohibition on using it to place bets on sporting outcomes. But on the assumption that such activity would be not in keeping with the forum's value-set - I'm reticent to start a book on the world-cup results. So - for those who have an...

    Man Cave Radio - Disable Sleep

    I'm not sure where this should be posted - "General Repairs" seems a good starting place, perhaps. So - I was recently given a car radio by a friend together with the request "I want to use this as a garage radio". The device is the ubiquitous RCD 310, which I understand was installed on a...

    Car cleaning - pedant, or not?

    I've just been reading a thread on another forum about the hygiene practices of car owners where car cleaning is concerned. At first thought, it seems like a fairly pedestrian activity, but the more that I read, the more fascinating the topic appears to be. I'm the sort of car owner that...

    Golf mk7.5 admap - strange happenings?

    I recently posted an auto-scan for a Golf mk7.5 on the reference thread which I obtained from a colleague on a local forum (thank you ozmale). The scan shows that the car has a couple of new modules that I had not seen before on an MQB vehicle - @ address hexD6 and hexD7. Thankfully, ozmale...
