VCDS Serial number
C?ID=418771
Using HEX-NET and VCDS Mobile, I found two things:
  • I logged a very long drive using VCDS Mobile, and time stamps between 4000s and 4300s are wrong (close to 2^32/1000 instead). After that, they restart. It's as if the timestamps are handled in microseconds using unsigned 32 bit integers. I haven't tried logging more than 4000s with VCDS on Windows, so I don't know if this is specific to VCDS Mobile.
  • Temperature readings contain a unit in each cell ("75.6°C"). VCDS on Windows doesn't do that, and when trying to create a graph from that data, it's better to have only the numbers in each cell. Specifying the unit in the header is totally sufficient.

The following excerpt contains the CSV headers, the first few lines, and the area where the problem starts. Timestamp 4000.46 is OK, but 0.00 and 4294677.00 are not.
Code:
Marker,TIME,Group 1 - Field 0,TIME,Group 1 - Field 3,TIME,Group 6 - Field 0,TIME,Group 7 - Field 0,TIME,Group 15 - Field 1,TIME,Group 15 - Field 2,TIME,Group 41 - Field 2,TIME,Group 62 - Field 2,TIME,Group 67 - Field 0,,,,,,,
