The Ross-Tech® HEX-V2® is the diagnostic system for all Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Skoda and Bentley vehicles from 1992 to more recent series of models, as well as other small batch series and utility vehicles based on Volkswagen technology.


The Ross-Tech® HEX-V2® Basiskit is available in 3 different versions:

  • 3 VIN Enthusiast version (max. 3 vehicles)
  • 10 VIN Enthusiast version (max. 10 vehicles)
  • Professional version (unlimited number of vehicles)


Possible applications:

  • Automated test sequence
  • Control device information (and expanded CAN information)
  • Actuator test (sequential / selective)
  • Basic setting
  • Coding (short / long / subsystems)
  • Value blocks (real-time data)
  • Adaption (long / short)
  • Readiness (read / set)
  • German database of fault codes with error texts
  • Service reset
  • EOBD / OBD2 functions (spans multiple brands)
  • and much more!

This evolution of the worldwide popular Ross-Tech HEX+CAN interface hardware can, like before, be used with the VCDS software which is based on Windows. For separate and especially older models / other brands (for example Linde, KTM), additional adapters are optionally available. In EOBD mode this interface grants access to diagnostic functions concerning exhaust and spanning multiple brands (such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, newer Opel models, all French brands, multiple Asian brands and much more). Furthermore, due to the licence dongle functionality of the HEX-V2 interface hardware the system is multi-workstation capable.

Comparative advantages to older VCDS diagnostic systems:

  • Robust USB cable, removable and replaceable
  • Supports the newer vehicle generations, starting in model year 2016 (for example Audi MLB2)
  • Improved materials for better stability, longer life span, improved exterior looks as well as ease of use
  • Up to 3 times faster communication with the vehicle (for example Auto-Scan) in comparison to HEX+CAN
  • New micro controller which makes future expansions of VCDS functions possible


  • Plug-ins VC-Scope, TDI-Graph and LCode
  • Software updates through download for free for an undetermined period of time, however at least 12 months from the purchase date
  • Technical support after purchase through the German VCDS discussion board and the German VCDS Wiki
  • Manual for the use of the German VCDS discussion board and the German VCDS Wiki

Please note:

  • Due to the communication rate of 240 bits per second, found in Audi TDI engine control devices built from 1991 to 1994, the HEX-NET and HEX-V2 interfaces can not establish a connection. A HEX+CAN-USB diagnostic system is required for these engine control devices.

Technical specifications:

  • 16 pole ISO 9141-2 OBD2 plug made from fibre-reinforced ABS plastic with proper fit
  • Flexible USB connection cable with a length of approx. 1,5m
  • Gold plated connections for highest stability and contact security
  • 2 LEDs for a multi-colour display of the type of connection
  • 2 CAN diagnosis cables (KWP 6000 and KWP 7000)
  • 2 K diagnosis cables (KWP 1281 and KWP 2000)
  • Licence dongle functionality for VAG-COM diagnostic software (VCDS)
    • To use your Ross-Tech HEX-V2 to its fullest extent, it must be registered with the manufacturer Ross-Tech LLC. after installation of the Software.
  • Automatic baud rate detection

5 from 5 Kauf VCDS HEX-V2 sehr zufriedenstellend

Bisher habe ich eine chinesische Kopie von VCDS auf meinem VW T4 verwendet, aber ich jetzt bin ich mit dem originalen VCDS-Basis-Kit beruhigt, das Produkt ist viel hochwertiger besser und funktioniert einwandfrei,es hat auch den Vorteil, dass man Updates bekommt. kostenlos zur Verfügung stehen. Schließlich finde ich, dass es für 3 VIN nicht zu teuer ist und im Vergleich zu dem Preis einer Diagnose in einem VW-Händler macht sich die Ausrüstung schnell bezahlt. Ich bin Franzose und froh, dass ich das deutsche VCDS gekauft habe. zu dem ausgezeichneten Forum Michel P.

5 from 5 very handy & reliable

My experience with PCI Diagnosetechnik is simply excellent. Great communication, very convenient and easy transaction, clear guidelines and instructions how to register to VCDS The only prerequisite is to understand the German language, quite normal, PCI is one of official Ross-Tec’s retailers in Germany.
The item I bought was the new generation of Hex-V2 unlimited edition with usb connection. The material and workmanship of both adapter and cable are perfect, the small bolt that secures the usb to the adapter is rather clever and important for probable misuse, the same goes for the nice hard plastic blue case i ‘vd choose to buy with. The adapter works perfect in 2 cars ‘vd tested so far (SKODA Octavia 1U and VW Polo 9N), by using win.10 home edition and the Englisch version of Ross-Tech’s software (downloaded from Ross-Tech’s web page). I’m a DIY’er with some experience and beware, as company states, this is a helping tool, that supplements detailed workshop manuals, also some procedures require special equipment that are hard and expensive to obtain. In bottom line till now saved me some money and didn’t regranted a bit, all though bit pricey
