full-function diagnostic system for VW/Audi.
Constantly updated software has ensured compatibility with all VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda passenger cars through
the current model year ever since.

a direct CAN connection for diagnostics.

and first to include a Gateway Coding Assistant.

using the new UDS/ODX/ASAM protocols, and to properly support resetting of all 3 independent counters
used for Service Reminders in 2008+ model Audis.
