    That link says that for initial purchase a 3-VIN version of the HEX-NET is NOT available, neither is an unlimited VIN version of the HEX-V2.

    I guess the question is what upgrades are available? Specifically, can the HEX-V2 be upgraded to unlimited VIN? A question which I believe is answered here https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/upVIN

    Correct.
    • It would not be economically viable for us to offer the HEX-NET at a price commensurate with a 3-VIN license, so the HEX-NET starts at 10 VINs.
    • We would prefer those who need an Unlimited VIN license (generally repair shops or other "professional" users) to purchase a HEX-NET rather than a V2. Hence we do not offer an Unlimited-VIN HEX-V2 directly.

    Correct, it can. A 3-VIN HEX-V2 can be upgraded to 10-VINs. Any 10-VIN interface (a HEX-NET or HEX-V2, including a HEX-V2 that started life as a 3-VIN and has already been upgraded to 10-VINs) can be upgraded to Unlimited. The cost for each VIN upgrade is $169.

    Any of our current interfaces will work.

    I'll give myself the right to say - of course. Hex Can is the best product from Ross-Tech.

    Not properly, the HEX-CAN won't give you full diagnostics and depending on how your car is equipped may not be able to talk to some modules at all (those that only use very long CAN bus messages).

    As Uwe says you need one of the CURRENT Ross-Tech interfaces.

    Be careful of what you choose. Many of the cheap HEX-CAN units are knock-offs. Buyer beware. You only have one car - so why not buy the HEX-V2 Enthusiast limited to 3 VINs with our full VCDS software and full capability for 3 cars. It is our least cost option. I don't remember if our Sloveni distributor stocks these. He may not..

    Not very well. There will be some things in a B9 that a HEX+CAN will not be able to talk to.
