I recently acquired the VAG-COM software and cable, but have yet to get beyond "gee-whiz" and learn how to do useful stuff with it.

I'm in the northeastern Boston 'burbs, and once the @#$% dealer finishes fixing my ailing Jetta I'll be happy to go scan folks. (...if my girlfriend will let me!)

Well, there's a least one in France: I have VAG-COM, VW-tool, Uwe's cable of course, and a compaq laptop (soon two). I'm in Angers, Maine et Loire. If any frenchman in need of help is reading this, I'll be glad to help him (or her, with even more pleasure
)
Got the family album too, hehe

Hmmmm, with all the TDI's in the DFW Texas area, you would think someone would have one. Well I'll be purchasing mine in the next couple of months, but for now anyone in the DFW have one?

Add me to the list. I just ordered the cable from Uwe Ross. I expect I will get it this week, and anyone who needs to use it for diagnostic work in central Minnesota should contact me. I live in St. Cloud, and work in Minneapolis.

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!

E-mail me at agrubs@hotmail.com would be the best bet.. With Qwest selling all their internet users to MSN, my other e-mail address's are in the process of changing. (NOT to MSN by the way!)

I work a strange shift, so it might take me a day or so to answer at times. Hope that helps..

It appears that nobody in my area has a VagCom... anybody interested in making a group purchase of one?

I just got Vag-Com to work with Andy Whittaker's adaptor cable.
I registered the software and so I now have all of the bells n whistles.

Andy's adaptor works well, and is a little cheaper for us Brits. It is however just a bare circuit board, and you have to make up the cables yourself (you can just buy the RS-232 one) and put in a box.

Andy actually sells an unpopulated PCB so that you can make the adaptor yourself. I have the ability but no the time anymore. The adaptor is optically isolated like Uwe's.

Of course by buying the adaptor seperately from the software you don't get the same level of support if thinks don't work.

Also got a laptop.

I'm Hertfordshire / Essex border in England.

I've thought about making a cable to reduce the cost.. can anybody tell me exactly what the software does and doesn't do when in shareware mode?
