Default VAG-COM in Missoula, Montana

Hello --

Looking for anyone that has VAG-COM in Missoula or nearby. There's lots of TDi's here....someone has to do their own wrenching, no?

I only have MAC computers, otherwise I would buy myself.

Thanks!

--Brian

Setup bootcamp on your mac so you can run windows on it, thats what I do so I don't have to take a second windows laptop when I road trip.

Bootcamp is supported. I don't know what license cost is for Windows when doing Bootcamp. Any sort of virtual PC is not supported, so no fusion or parallels.

RCA Cambio 10.1" 2 in 1 32GB Tablet with Windows 10 is a dirt cheap "netbook" that on paper meets the minimum specs fro running VCDS. Walmart has it currently listed for $99.98.

What should you do first with VCDS? AUTOSCAN!

That would be a good solution for an auto diagnostics tool. $100 Tablet, 2 or $300 VCDS

I got a net book from BestBuy for about that not long ago with windows 10, just for dedicated VCDS use. I already own VCDS so just saves me from hauling the laptop out. I leave it stored in the car (out of sight) so it is always handy.
