    Hex v3?

    I am planning to buy a hex v2 unlimited cable from one of your European distributor.

    I have 2 questions:

    1) Any new hex cable in the pipeline? Read something about doip DoIP??

    2) Does rosstech facilitate in second hand v2 cables?

    Greetings
    From Holland

    We do not currently have a HEX-V3 in the pipeline.

    DoIP is being implemented in a revised version of the HEX-NET that should be available sometime in the spring of this year. There are cars that support DoIP, but we have yet to see a car that actually requires it.

    We do not sell second-hand cables. I'm not sure what you mean by "facilitate". If you buy a second-hand HEX-V2 cable somewhere else, you have full use of the product, but you will not be a registered user, and thus will not be eligible for support (including Verified status on this forum) or any type of upgrade. However, you can become a registered user for $99 here.

    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.

    Thanks for this clear answer. So DoIP is only applicable to hexnet and not v2?

    DoIP is not applicable to anything at all right now.

    DoIP will be available in a revised version of the HEX-NET in the spring.

    If/when there are cars that require DoIP, then we may decide to make a version of the HEX-V2 that supports it.

    Will this be an update to existing HEX-NETs or a completely different product?

    We are not yet in a position to make any guarantees of functionality on the Mk.8 cars, but I expect this will be more a matter of the "Security Gateway" than a need for DoIP.

    It's not an update. You can't add the hardware needed for DoIP via an "update".

    I wouldn't worry about it too much though. As I've said on quite a few occasions, there are not currently any cars that require DoIP for diagnostics, nor are we certain when (if ever) there will be.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure if the hardware was already there just waiting to be utilized.
