    8P is canbus, 409 supports can, but you may be limited what you can see given assuming its a shareware version.

    When you say its a paid software, you mean you paid RT for the license or you paid for the cable & software from ebay as such & its possible the lead is crap in which I would suggest you buy the proper one that is guaranteed to work on the car if the car is fully functional that is interms of ODB2 port, other issue maybe you're trying to logon to modules not supported by the car or by the version you have, however I sell genuine cables so PM if interested & they're in stock & ready to go.

    Well the genuine version Hex-Can-USB is 241 delivered & will work on 99.99999% of vag cars old & new, you wont have any issues with these I can assure you.

    Software license you have is for much older version then mate, where as the genuine ones I sell work on all current & new released versions which are now 908 & beta 912, full unrestricted use.

    No mate, as they only seem to do an upgrade path from a genuine older RT dongle to the new one, so overall new one needed afaik, but could sell yours personally to an 8L boy but they would need to act as you for support as license as you have arent transferable, but tbh the older version has all the support on forums anyway so they shouldnt need any with RT, thats why genuine cable is great cause you could sell that later if need be.

    So new one is best option, sorry but name me one person thats regretted, not one of my buyers has comeback with a fault, issue etc, they just work mate & bloody well at that on all vag cars & not linked to one laptop & no limited functions.
