    Hex-Can does not support a lot of later modules after 2016, you need a VCDS V2 or Hex-Net adapter.

  3. VCDS is much better but at a cost.

    The support is better, the retrofit functionality is better.

    However for day to day usage a large number of VCDS Users also have OBD11.

    I am biased as I use OBD11 A lot and so far not found anything I want to do I cant (which would not be true on Carista)

    There is a vast difference in price, OBDeleven Pro is around £60 and works with Android devices, VCDS V2 is about £299 for 10 vin version and works with Windows 7 and above.

    I need one that enables autolights on the facelift leon fr 2017 model. To my knowledge, obd11 can only do autolights for the pre facelift

    I got the original rain autolight sensor and switch, the auto rain sensor part didnt need coding but the auto light switch causes error messages on instrument cluster. I followed the vcds coding and adaptation procedure but it didnt work

  7. can you share the coding just in case somebody can spot an error with it.
    What did you use to make the changes that did not work.

    Hi, Ive been using the old version of VCDS, partly because mine is a clone and partly because there was an issue at first with the newer not recognising the 5F when it was first updated, but does anyone know if that has now been resolved so I can update my software?

    From what I've heard if you try to update the software on a clone cable it will kill the cable, I have genuine VCDS V2 cable with latest (18.2) software and no problems with 5F.

    It WORKS!!! :cheers:
    Parametrization was wrong, at first they did it for Škoda. Sent camera back to them and now they did it for VW and also coded it for me :)

    Great news -antero-!
    Now I can start seriously think about ordering the highline camera.

    Do you have a picture of the coding in VCDS that you have now?
    Have you done the camera calibration with the dotted plate via VCDS already?

    Sorry for late answer :)
    Software Coding: 018402012600201F000040
    I have not done the calibration and seems like I don't have to, video is nearly perfect. At least for me it seems perfect :)

    Currently I have two errors that VCDS shows:

    Is there a translated list of what items are and their functions, when youre looking at your LOG files?
    Example
    German - ENG116952-ENG116179-Leuchte16BLK SLB35BLK SL KC9-Lichtfunktion A 16
    English - ENG116952-ENG116179-Light or Luminaire 16BLK SLB35BLK SL KC9- Light Function A 16

    ^Pretty straight forward.
    But what is light 16BLK and what is function A16?

    I’ve seen on YouTube that you can use vcds to program the car to use the horn instead of the alarm for the actual alarm....anyone know how??
