Ross-Tech, LLC, announces the release of a new Beta version of VCDS, Version 812. This test version adds support for measuring values from the UDS/ODX/ASAM Control Modules found in some 2008 and many more 2009 VW group vehicles. Since the modules using this new diagnostic protocol no longer support VW’s classic Measuring Block Group concept, VCDS presents this data exclusively in our innovative Advanced Measuring Value style where the user can select real-time data from a labeled checklist. Up to 12 values can be displayed simultaneously in text as well as graphical form.
“Being able to view and log real-time data from the latest control modules shows our commitment to keeping VCDS current while making it simple to use," says Uwe Ross, the founder of Ross-Tech.
“Technicians need tools that help them get the information they need to decide on a course of action and VCDS is once again the first tool in the aftermarket with support for a major change in the way VW and Audi do diagnostics.”
Beta releases are free to all registered users. Feedback on the test product is invited. The Beta release will be made a full release most likely in the 2nd Quarter of 2009. Complete details of the release are available on this web page: http://www.ross-tech.com/vcds/download/beta/current.html
