'wheeling' the code to end users is not permitted legaly by VAG. The GEKO token owner needs to be with the car to manually check the vin number of the car. But i think there will be a solution some day when the pressure of big aftermarket diagnostic tool manufacturers is big enough. Or somebody will reverse engineer the sfd alghoritme.
Is that theoretically possible? Probably. But I suspect VWAG would not be amused once they detected someone doing that. I've heard there was a UK-based supplier of very expensive scan tools doing that some years ago and VW came down on them pretty hard. I won't name names, so please don't ask.
GeKo Account - 1 Monthhmmm.......... I remembered these replies (above) but this morning I came across this webpage which seems to be at odds with the notion that GEKO is a one-to-one facility.
Notwithstanding that @ $200/month, the product being sold ain't for everyone - is it kosher and has anyone used this type of service?
