HEX-V2® - The new generation VCDS® interface!Serious car diagnostics interfaces for Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda models!
The Ross-Tech VCDS package (previously known as VAG-COM or VAGCOM) turns your PC into a sophisticated VW/Audi diagnostic tool, that performs the functions of a factory VAG scan tools for VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda cars.
The Ross-Tech HEX-V2® interface is the new generation wired interface for VCDS, designed to replace the HEX-USB+CAN and Micro-CAN products.
The HEX-V2 is based on the technology of Ross-Tech's revolutionary HEX-NET® interface, which was completely re-designed from the ground up to be faster, more secure and more versatile. The HEX-NET and HEX-V2 are the fastest interfaces Ross-Tech have ever sold. They can perform Auto-Scans on 2005 and later models up to 3 times faster than the HEX-USB+CAN interface.
The HEX-V2 is a wired USB interface, for the most reliable connections, but now features a user-replaceable USB cable.
The HEX-V2 is available in 3 versions:
For enthusiast use, please see the 10-VIN package.
For professional use, please see the Unlimited package.
VIN LimitsOnly some VCDS functions are restricted to use on a specific number of cars on the 3 and 10-VIN limited interfaces. Basic functions may be used on as many cars as you wish:
Unlimited functionsA VIN-Limited interface can do Auto-Scans, Clear DTCs, and look at Measuring Values on an unlimited number of cars.
If you directly connect to a control module (e.g. Select > 01. Engine), VCDS will ask if you wish to store the VIN, but selecting No will still allow the connection to continue.
Essentially functions that actually change things in the car are VIN-limited:
It will always ask you first, thereby giving you the opportunity to decline to "register" a VIN in the interface.
For more information on VIN limits please see this VIN FAQ on the Ross-Tech forums.

Software updatesAs with previous Ross-Tech products, software updates are free for the life of the cable with HEX-V2 interfaces.
However, the HEX-V2 interface may only be used a limited number of times before you must register it (for free) with Ross-Tech.
A "use" is a connection to any control module, so you may need to register it after running your first Auto-Scan.
To register your interface simply follow the instructions in this video from Ross-Tech:
The VCDS software installed on your PC will automatically inform you when software updates are available, and will offer to install the update itself.
You will also need to update the "firmware" of the interface cable though - this is the operating software stored inside the interface itself.
Ross-Tech recommend checking for firmware updates at least once a month, and after any VCDS software update.
To check for firmware updates, follow the instructions in this video:
