To be honest, I do not recall, but I doubt I would have purchased the unlimited VIN version -- I believe this is the 3-VIN version.

Does anyone know if there is a way to tell ? (I have the original receipt, purchased it in 2012 )

When I purchased mine, the receipt indicated the version specifically. However, mine was in 2015. You'd probably have to contact Ross-Tech. The device as far as I know is the same physically, the only difference is in the license which I believe is stored at Ross-Tech, not on the device.

OK, I called RossTech and also looked through some emails from when I originally purchased it....


Just to clarify and make sure it is clear to everyone (...this point was mentioned in another thread ):
  • The VCDS / HEX-USB+CAN has no VIN limitation
  • Ross-Tech does not do anything to "prevent someone from selling an interface, nor do they prevent anyone from buying an interface" on the secondary market -- but it comes with no license or support to the second owner. That doesn't mean it won't work, just that you have no product support.
  • If the second owner wishes to register the interface (for a full license and tech support) they need to go to Ross-Tech's registration page:

    Ross-Tech: Product Registration and Activation
I hope that straightens everything out, sorry for not having all that info to start with...

To add to this you can buy it, never register it, get all the updates for it and continue on. I bought mine from a similar situation such as this and have had it for years without registering it to my name at all. These cables are a must have if you own a VW or Audi vehicle!!
