I am planning to buy a hex v2 unlimited cable from one of your European distributor.

I have 2 questions:

1) Any new hex cable in the pipeline? Read something about doip DoIP??

2) Does rosstech facilitate in second hand v2 cables?

Greetings
From Holland

We do not currently have a HEX-V3 in the pipeline.

DoIP is being implemented in a revised version of the HEX-NET that should be available sometime in the spring of this year. There are cars that support DoIP, but we have yet to see a car that actually requires it.

We do not sell second-hand cables. I'm not sure what you mean by "facilitate". If you buy a second-hand HEX-V2 cable somewhere else, you have full use of the product, but you will not be a registered user, and thus will not be eligible for support (including Verified status on this forum) or any type of upgrade. However, you can become a registered user for $99 here.

Thanks for this clear answer. So DoIP is only applicable to hexnet and not v2?

DoIP is not applicable to anything at all right now.

DoIP will be available in a revised version of the HEX-NET in the spring.

If/when there are cars that require DoIP, then we may decide to make a version of the HEX-V2 that supports it.

Will this be an update to existing HEX-NETs or a completely different product?

We are not yet in a position to make any guarantees of functionality on the Mk.8 cars, but I expect this will be more a matter of the "Security Gateway" than a need for DoIP.

It's not an update. You can't add the hardware needed for DoIP via an "update". ;)

I wouldn't worry about it too much though. As I've said on quite a few occasions, there are not currently any cars that require DoIP for diagnostics, nor are we certain when (if ever) there will be.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if the hardware was already there just waiting to be utilized.
