    Problem with Turbo mode

    Have only had VCDS for a couple weeks.

    I made some captures last week at 15Hz using Turbo mode, which was great (tracking down a problem with Unitronic tune). I tried again on Sunday and was limited to 4Hz. The Turbo button changed to "9900" when pressed, which I gather is normal.

    Any thoughts? Obvious things I could be doing wrong? VCDS has locked up a few times on me when I shut the car down before exiting. Assume this is normal.

    Thanks for any thoughts!

    Post a screen-shot please so we can see what you've got selected and how.

    Yes, more-or-less expected. If you're patient enough, I believe you'll find it eventually times out, but it's pretty tenacious and will take a while before it gives up.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I'm dumb. I've been forgetting to check Group UDS requests. Back to 16Hz.
