Open-Source / Freeware Graphing "Plug-In" for VCDS (VC-Scope is included when you download VCDS)
You can use VC-Scope in one of two ways:
View live data while connected to a car by launching VAG-Scope. Click the [Graph] button on VCDS's Measuring Blocks screen,
View data previously logged with VCDS by manually starting VC-Scope in stand-alone and opening a VCDS Log file
You cannot do both at the same time.If VC-Scope is running in Stand-alone mode, VCDS will not start. If you manually start VC-Scope while VCDS is running, it won't work (should give an error message).
Use the checkboxes next to each display field to select which items are graphed.
Click on a field to select it for vertical scaling.Then change the Max and Min values in the Vertical scale boxes. VC-Scope will remember all scaling values for a particular control module by part number.
Click the VC-Scope icon on the top left of the main VC-Scope screen for a menu item to access a Preferences Dialog:
Here you can set colors for the graph lines, the graph background and the grid.
You can also set default scaling values (based on the units that VCDS sends)
To display a gauge, right-click in the small color square next to the data you want to see on the gauge:
You can have as many gauges as there are lines on the graph.
Each gauge can be independently re-sized and repositioned.
Right-clicking on the gauge itself will give you several options:
VAG-Scope can be used to play back Log files producedby any version of VCDS but only if they have not been saved or modified by any other program.
VC-Scope is included in the all VCDS releases available on our Download Page, but you may find a newer version of VC-Scope on the VC-Scope Download Page.
