VAD Mobile Wireless

With new VAD Mobile Wireless, the user is no longer confined to the cabin of the vehicle with the traditional OBD-II cable. Now, an OBD-II adapter equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology is used in conjunction with a Palm OS PDA or Smartphone to communicate with on board computers.

COMPATIBLE WITH CAN-BUS EQUIPPED VEHICLES

Not only does VAD Mobile Wireless offer increased flexibility and portability, it is also able to communicate with the latest CAN-Bus equipped VW and Audi vehicles up to the 2010 model year. These newer (post 2004) models rely heavily on a faster and more advanced communication system that cannot be completely accessed with the original VAD Mobile product. With VAD Mobile Wireless operating over the Bluetooth wireless network, all ECU’s can now be accessed and navigation and sampling rates are faster than ever before.

UPDATED INTERFACE AND FUNCTIONALITY
