Enthusiast version for use with a maximum of 10 VIN numbers.
The latest generation HEX-V2 is based on the technology of Ross-Tech’s revolutionary HEX-NET® interface, which was completely re-designed to be faster, and more versatile. The HEX-NET® and HEX-V2 are now the fastest interfaces Ross-Tech currently sell. They can perform Auto-Scans on 2005 and later models much faster than the older HEX-USB+CAN interface.
The HEX-NET Enthusiast WiFi interface works with VCDS®, via USB or WiFi, turning a Windows PC into a factory-level diagnostic tool for VW, Audi, Seat or Skoda cars. It also has VCDS-Mobile® built in to allow most smart devices with WiFi and a web browser to perform similar diagnostics as a bonus.

Vehicle Identification number or more commonly a chassis number, in order to perform more complex functions, you will be required to store a VIN number to proceed.
VCDS will always ask beforehand, so depending on what you are trying to do, you can make the decision then.
This is the maximum number of vehicles you can work on with full functionality, as previously mentioned when you need store a VIN it will be permanently embedded and cannot be deleted, each of the kits can be upgraded to its next level, this is done directly with Ross-tech on their website at an extra cost.
You will only be able to use basic functions of VCDS on any other vehicle, other than the ones stored – operations like scanning, fault finding and clearing codes, anything that requires entering a control module will not be possible. You will need to purchase an upgrade from Ross-Tech to work on more vehicles, which is handy if you do not wish to spend a lot initially and do not mind upgrading your lead during the many years you use it.
All kits perform eXactly the same full functionality, the only difference is the VIN storage limitation and the ability to use the full functions with vehicles – Unlimited kit has no storage limitation, so is naturally the most expensive.
All updates to VCDS software and firmware are free as and when Ross-Tech release them, as long as the laptop or device is connected to the internet, it will ask you to update. Firmware update are done slightly different, we include a handy for video for this on the memory stick provided, so there nothing else to pay for.
All new V2 leads must now be registered with Ross-Tech after 12 uses, included on the memory stick is a video on how to do this.
The lead is supplied with a 12-month hardware warranty. As now all leads must be registered you can then also register on the Ross-Tech.com forums to post any issues direct to Ross-Tech, you may have with your VCDS, they in turn will contact the distributor you purchased the lead from to help with support.
Yes, you can, but contact us beforehand to arrange current pricing and details of where to send your old lead to. If a lead is accepted for refund, as we can only accept genuine and fully working version, we will refund this price back to your original payment for the new V2 VCDS purchased with us
