Enthusiast’s version for use with a maximum of 10 VIN numbers.
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.
VCDS compatible with:
Microsoft Windows® versions from XP through the current Windows 10
VCDS-Mobile Compatible with:
Apple iPad®, iPhone®
Most Android®phones and tablets
Blackberry Z10®, Q10®

Please note: VCDS-Mobile is currently still considered a “beta” release and so should not be relied upon on its own. If performing an essential task on a vehicle we would recommend having a Windows laptop available as a backup.
Technical support for VCDS-Mobile is only available through the Ross-Tech Forums <link to forums.ross-tech.com>
