Default VCDS @ TDIFest

I'm going to be giving a basic and advanced VCDS tech demo at TDIFest this year.

I have some ideas of what I want to cover, including Auto Scan, Fault codes, Long Coding, and interface types.

Are there other topics people are interested in me speaking about? I'd love to share the bits I've learned!

we could address how to get it to work with a Mac. VCDS doesn't support that, but with the correct programs, it works as it should. I'll have my laptop with me as well as my cable

It works fine on a MAC, in Bootcamp as I run it, or in a virtual machine application like Parallels. In either case you need to have a copy of Windows. I'll have mine there too.

That can definitely be arranged! You could even volunteer your car for one of the VCDS tech sessions.

I tried side loading the vcds mobile app on my kindle and I now have connected to the cloud thank you for your input. I found the digital gauges that I was talking about they are in the live data tab. Overall a good time and informative wekend.
