Please use this thread to identify to other Forum members if you have a scan tool setup, and where you are. It may help someone in the future. Thanks.
I have one, and am located in Charlotte, NC

I have one and am in the Denver area. (Colorado).

(My portable computer is borrowed, however and it is now not with me. Someone needed it for work! Sheesh.)

Is there anyone near the Twin Cities area?

If not, I might consider getting one if my wife would let me.

I have the VAG-COM software, Uwe's interface cable and appropriate notebook computer to hook everything up and scan anywhere.

I will be glad to assist forum members in the Toronto, Ontario area.

Question: can you change engine parameters with the vag-com software?

What's that price on it?

I might consider getting the software for my laptop.

I have VAG-com software/cable and an old version of VW-tool and a notebook PC.
I am located near Omaha.

FYI: got a note from Uwe, that a new beta release of VAG-com is due about the end of the month. Here is his reply to a note on the e-groups list..

Although this is obviously one of the "major" VAG-Tool functions, there
hasn't been much call for it, and it is not implemented yet.


I've looked at what's necessary to do it, and it appears pretty
straightforward. However, I don't think it will make it into the new Beta
Release scheduled for the end of this month. This Beta will have
Data/Measuring Blocks, Basic Settings, and Adaptation. These functions
(which everyone has been clamoring for) were the "hump" in developing the
VAG-COM software. Interpreting the raw data that the ECU sends into
something meaningful to present to the user was a real nightmare.


Now that I'm over this "hump", I feel confident enough to publish a schedule
for implementation of the remaining functions. Please see: http://www.Ross-Tech.com/vag-com/vag-functions.html.


I think this is a conservative schedule, in other words, one I can easily
meet. I'm really hoping to have a Output Tests done in November, and a
non-Beta "1.0" release ready by the end of the year.


Plans for the 1.0 are that it will include data-logging (in a format you can
bring right into Excel so you can make your own graphs), but it probably
won't graph data in real-time or do the "00 Scan" / Auto Test.

So good things are in store for us at the end of the month!

Drive on!

Valois recommended to me the Vag-Com® in a recent phone conversation we had. I purchased it and when Uwe says overnight delivery, it is! Haven't played with it yet as I am waiting delivery of my laptop. As soon as I learn how it works I'll also be glad to help anyone that needs them. I'm in the Phoenix area.

Uwe was selling them for $199.00 I believe, it's a great deal as a tremendous amount of support comes with the purchase, he might raise the price when the finished software comes out, he's devoted alot of time and effort to it.

Thanks to Uwe I have a cable which'll work with my Compaq laptop, also the software, but not the CD ROM yet (planned for purchase fairly soon...) I am usually located in eastern Monmouth County, NJ.

I have a generic OBD II program and a cable to go with it. I also have the "VW Tool" software but no cable. (My "generic" cable contains an encryption chip and won't work with the other s/w....the bastards!)

One of these days, when my ship comes in, I'll order the s/w and cable from Uwe. In the meantime I'm not equipped to check timing. Sorry.

-mickey

p.s. I know that Pugs has a cable because I've used it with my VW Tool s/w. If you need help in Northern Utah Pugs and I can team up.
