If I buy VCP unit, I'll have to pay again to obtain dataset for Side Assist and A5 camera???
Please ask VCP questions somewhere else.

Ok, I'll do it but it should be more simple if VCDS did it...

I think Uwe has explained it numerous times why it does not have that feature. You’re not the first one to ask.

It’s better to do one thing properly than do multiple things bad. Try the other tool and you understand why. The user experience is shit. I mean real shit. Even ODIS has better interface and that is bad one.
I’ll take VCDS over any of those tools anytime for coding, adaptations and logging.

And isn’t it good that we have several different tools to use. Life would be boring if it would be ”one size fits all” philosophy? :)

Yes indeed, I bought OBD11 thinking it should be more fun to code with an android machine but finally, I prefer take my computer and make things more clearly with VCDS, which I think is the best tool for codings and adaptation.
But, it doesn't allow me to do all I want!

Depending on what you are doing to a car, you are likely to need more than one wrench, right?

I think Homer should be able to repair his car with only one wrench:D But I'm a little bit more demanding:p

You're doing more than just "repairing" a car, no?

If I understand, this plug above J533 Can Gateway pins is here to avoid multi soldering on T7/T17 which are already used for ACC and lane assist. I'm talking about the plug just at the right of "CANBUS" writted on diagram.
Am I right?
I think there's a mistake on the diagram. J533 has a T20 connector, not a T27...?

Hello, I'm enjoying lane assist retrofit and I'm willing to retrofit Side assist in addition.
I'm asking where to plug the thing above J533 on the picture below:

Where the RC32 goes?

You do not need to go to the fuse box. You have only to find + for assitants (ACC, A5 camera...) which is above the driver's footwell. You'll find a convinience point where you can scratch cables and solder + cable for rear side assist controllers. It comes from T17h/15 ( a green/black cable). If you do it like this, you'll have it installed as per factory.

can you explain how you connected them? I think I still have the wiring diagram for Tiguan as I’ve done the same retrofit to my Tiguan what you are now doing :)

The slave unit is missing either power, gnd or can connection.

Can you post a full autoscan so we can see what is visible and what are the errors you have?
