    Thanks Eric

    Hi Thank you for keeping this alive I have actually activated most of these options from a standard version of vcd I am looking for coding options for tail gate to close with fob key I have heard it’s possible with obd11. Ross tech need to step up even video in motion you can enable with obd11 on newer golfs but not vcd any update from rosstech on this matter.....

    IIRC Uwe has commented several times that the legal issues with associated with enabling VIM are potentially troubling.

    Consider what happens if a fatal accident is caused by the driver watching a video on the screen after VIM has been enabled using a diagnostic tool such as OBD11 or VCDS - there is a reasonable case for relatives of the deceased to take legal action against the manufacturer of the diagnostic tool for allowing their tool to illegally enable VIM (since a video screen visible by the driver is illegal in most countries, definitely in the UK where you and I live) and hence they have some culpability for the death of their relative.

    Not a position that all companies want to put themselves in...

    If you can show me a link to someone that has coded the tailgate to close on a 4K, with any coding tool - please do.

    It is/was possible to code on the A6/A7 4G - but not on the 4K - you can however buy a tailgate close module, you can install, which cover almost all models, where coding aren't available.

    The tailgate close module could be this one: https://www.kufatec.com/en/all-produ...a-seat-33801-n - but others do exist.

    I did the video in motion on my previous 2011 S4. I used it once on a road trip and it was scary. Even on a quiet freeway you find yourself wanting to look at the screen and not focusing on the road. Never used it again.
