Default Polar FIS PF04, updated hardware

https://mailchi.mp/auto-polar/pf04-p...9?e=0f68bb5f50

looks like this will be the solution for MQB cars. (including the MK VII)

Thanks. At this point I guess it makes sense to wait.

Which is what they said back in '16 when I purchased the PF03 that was going to work on MQB vehicles. I really like the idea of the product, and will likely purchase it if it becomes available, but I'm not expecting it anytime soon unfortunately.

Please excuse my absolute ignorance about the codes and letters, but would the PF03 offer any advantages on a 15 Passat? I just assumed newer, smaller, and faster equaled better.

PF03 will not work on MQB vehicles. They were working on that since 9/16 but have decided on a newer hardware version as mentioned in the OP.

I don’t understand what MQB means. Just trying to figure out which would be better for my 15 Passat. The PF03 or PF04. Using a scangauge now but ready to move on.

Your Passat is an MQB platform vehicle along with the '15 Golfs and GSWs. You'll need the PF04 when it becomes available.

looks like the PF04 are available to order auto-polar.com now
this site in France seems to have them for a bit less though (VAT tax is removed once you put in a US shipping address) http://www.all-stars-motorsport.com/...pf04&results=1

I think that site may have jumped the gun, their pictures still show the PF03 and no MQB vehicles listed as compatible. I'd be shocked if Auto-Polar are able to stay true to the statement of having it available in the "next weeks".

from auto-polar.com
"PF04 – PolarFIS MK5/6/8P (new hardware revision)
We are happy to announce a new hardware revision of our current product PolarFIS Advanced [PF03]. The new product name will be PolarFIS MK5/6/8P [PF04]."

Meaning new version of PF03 now called PolarFIS MK5/6/8P [PF04], but still for the same cars.

"This new revision contains some important improvements and fixments for continue giving long support to this product, and will be used as “base” for the new PolarFIS MQB that will be released in the next weeks."
Meaning PolarFIS for MQB cars is an entirely new product that will be out in the next few weeks. And is based on the new hardware they have come up with.

So you're right in that there is no PolarFIS for MQB at the moment but there is a new revision (PF04 replacing PF03) currently available to order for the MK5 etc. vehicles.

The PF04 is going to work for all platforms...and, is still unavailable.
