Do you have any good success with FVDI 2018? same sw as 2015?

his 2018 version has the same software versions as the 2015 version except that has updated software for VAG and BMW/Mini which is from the VVDI software. IMMO 4 and 5 key programming is working. Only tested on 2012 Scirocco 2.0 TSi and 2014 Audi A5 2.0T.

Mercedes software still has bugs for odometer correction. W204 did not work.

Overall it is good value for money. Not as good as OBDSTAR X300 DP PAD for keys and odometer but has many better functions like programming and calibrations.

Where to but FVDI 2018 of good quality and at the best price?

Here you go…

FVDI not work or driver won`t install, please check computer Config

FVDI 2016 not work or driver won`t install, please check computer Config

FVDI ABRITES Commander not work or driver won`t install? Then some user consider FVDI hardware is broken and send back to the seller for repair. Actually, obd2tool.com engineer tested and proved it’s not problem of hardware, but the compatibility of the computer and FVDI.

FVDI 2016 computer configuration and operation system (OS)

1.CPU >=1.8 GHz , more than 2GB
2.OS: Windows XP, tested windows 7 32bit and prompt many system patches not found.
3.When update, if it prompts “Connecting to server…….failed” (See picture one).
Maybe the network connection is unstable, as the picture 2 shows, this user tried fine network connection when update, then get message “Connecting to server…….OK” and able to download firmware.

Real user’s Case to prove my opinion:
One user’s Auto Scanner Tools  FVDI 2016 not work, then contact our engineer to remote assist him, and find his computer is only with 768MB memory, use another higher configuration computer to install FVDI, finally FVDI 2015 works.
