  • VCDS (Tech 2) idea

    i have just bought a OB2 cable and VCDS software of ebay nice and cheap wasnt expecting much but im very impressed with it. It works in a similar way to Tech 2 but is controled via laptop one of the features is a data logger which will record what info you have selected while out on a drive so you dont have to try drive and watch the screen. I tryed this out the other night and put the Nm info on to record took it for a spin then upon return i watched the graph play back in real time which was awsome but the graph only goes up to 400Nm and my car according to the figs it showed in the small box it produced 410Nm (302ft-lb) the line just shoots up and disapears off the screen lol. I know this fig to be right as i had it rolling roaded last week at 300ft-lb .

    It will even show 1/4mile times 0-62 and so on then i got to thinking this software runs on windows and there is a double din stereo on ebay ive been thinking of getting that i know can be re flashed with windows OS. So in theroy i could get the above stereo re flash it with windows then add the VCDS software and connect that to my OB2 port and have an on board diagnostics computer to show info like below

    green line is the Nm



    and the max reading



    cant remember what the other figs are that i set for this run off the top of my head red was rpm

    so what do you think?

              I'd be careful with clearing fault codes mate VCDS is supposed to be for the VW and Audi group of cars, I certainly wouldnt try to program anything.

              Surprised the data logging worked but thats a good thing to have, can certainly look for flat spots etc.


              EDIT* just realised you have a skoda in your sig, so thats why it works LOL, I feel silly now lol

                if its off ebay they it will be more than likely a copy just like the op-con which i have but i only use it for data logging an thats it... wouldnt use it to change settings or clear anythin as you might put a virus onto the ecu....
