Product details

This upgrade is for unregistered, second-hand owners of VIN-limited Ross-Tech® HEX-V2® or HEX-NET® VCDS® interfaces who wish to add additional VINs to their interface limit.
The price is a special bundle deal offered by Ross-Tech, which includes:
  • Ownership Transfer - registration for support with Ross-Tech as the new owner of a previously registered interface. This is required to be eligible for a VIN license upgrade and is usually £99 if bought separately

  • VIN License Upgrade - worth £169 if bought separately see details below.

The VCDS interfaces have a tier system for VIN licenses - buying this upgrade will move your interface VIN limit up by one tier:
HEX-V2: 3-VIN > upgrade > 10-VIN > upgrade > Unlimited
HEX-NET: 10-VIN > upgrade > Unlimited

(So should you wish to upgrade from a 3-VIN interface to an Unlimited license, you would also need to purchase a second VIN upgrade separately)

Please note, this upgrade does not apply to interfaces which already have an unlimited VIN license, or the earlier generation HEX-USB / HEX-COM / Micro-CAN / KII-USB interfaces.

Prerequisites and Important Notes

  • Both the registration and the VIN upgrade have to be approved by Ross-Tech before being applied. This may cause a delay of up to 2 working days for the process to complete.
  • In order to process the upgrade you will need to confirm:
    - the Short Serial Number of your interface (HNx-xxxxxx / H1x-xxxxxx) from the label on the interface
    - the Long Serial Number of your interface (displayed in the 'About' page of the VCDS software)
  • You will need to submit a registration request for your HEX-V2 or HEX-NET interface with Ross-Tech once we have processed your order and contacted you - the re-registration must be completed before the VIN Upgrade feature code can be supplied.
  • Once the upgrade is approved, we and/or Ross-Tech will supply you with a 'feature code'. We will supply this code to you by email, so please ensure your email address is valid and you check it regularly after your purchase
  • This feature code must be activated within 7 calendar days (including weekends)
    (Failure to activate within this time may result in additional charges to re-issue a code)
  • The code is activated online within the VCDS Interface Config utility - part of the VCDS software. Therefore you must have access to a Windows PC and the internet to activate the upgrade
  • The VIN upgrade is an upgrade to your interface's license, and does not affect previously stored vehicle VINs. If you are upgrading from a 3-VIN to 10-VIN license, it will upgrade the number you are able to store from 3 to 10, i.e. an additional 7 VINs available.
