I was just letting you know, you are incorrect.
As I said, cables fix nothing. But both cable (guessing on your cable) do adaptation is what your trying to say.
Are you saying it's more complex than VCDS and does mostly of what it can do? That sounds terrorable.
Is either the cables you have legit?
Am I incorrect in now having solved my faults?
ODIS is not a cable, it's a software used by VW-service to do all their software "jobs" with a car. A suitable cable is needed to communicate with the car.
As English is not my primary language I seem to be phrasing myself poorly.
Summary: ODIS can do everything VCDS can, and a lot more as:
- Generate a service plan based on an initial scan and
- guide you through the steps necessary to solve your problems with live values and pictures of the placement of components.
- Flash newer software/firmware to the components if needed.
- Explain what all your cars faults is and why they have appeared, and what faults to ignore.
I still use VCDS as my primary scanning tool because it is easy to use, detects all faults and can do everything I have learned to do. But ODIS gets out when I find faults I do not know what to do with.
This was not intended as an VCDS vs. ODIS, as I tried to avoid by naming the thread "VCDS and ODIS". But it was intended to inform computer interested VW owners that there is other options out there than VCDS.
