    Since you will be speaking to Gendan, perhaps you could suggest that it would be helpful for them to advise about the registration transfer using our FAQ#3.10 Can I sell my VCDS system to someone else?. Next time I am speaking with them, I will suggest they make mention of this FAQ or state similar content.

    Regarding upgrades by distribs such as Gendan, they are not required to offer upgrades as there is no margin available to them for doing so. Should they choose to help, then some consideration should be given to them for their time.

    Hi Jason,
    I've emailed Gendan asking whether they offer an upgrade option. I should hear back in a couple of days.

    Hi Bruce,

    When I emailed Gendan I did indeed mention that I could see nothing on their website advising about registration transfer. I'm hoping that they may offer some consideration in enabling me to upgrade.

    Thanks.

    Good, it's probably easiest for everyone if it can be handled in-country.

    May I ask why you're looking at a HEX-USB+CAN? The HEX-NET interface is very nice, and doesn't cost much more for personal use.

    Probably because Gendan still have a message on their site saying not for sale in UK...
    They don't seem the most up to date seller....

    Quite a margin they have as well.
    Approx 50 on each HexCan lead from comparing the RT price to Gendan price. Nice markup.

    Yes, his interface is eligible to for our trade-in program. Of course, there would be shipping costs.

    Just don't ask what we spike it with.

    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.

    Are you taking VAT into consideration? Remember that there is NO VAT in the US.

    No distributor is selling HEX-NET while we are in the Beta phase of release. That is why Gendan has a message saying not for sale.

    Bruce has answered that question...

    Today I have received a clear and detailed reply from Gendan who, with the agreement of Ross-Tech, would be prepared to sell me an upgrade package. On balance though it will probably be more cost effective for me to by a new HEX-USB+CAN from Gendan and then sell my existing Micro-CAN on eBay or similar - or even more likely I'll just keep what I've got and get someone else to read/reset the fault codes on a car I have which is a little too old to work with my existing interface.

    Thanks all for your comments, I think now that there is no more to be said.
