    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Hi all, just wondering if anyone on here has any experience with these apps? You connect them to the car using a third party wifi plug in thing. Thought it might be a decent cheap alternative to vcds. Sooo do these work???

    What interface are you going to use with them. The VAG 1.1 software even if it supports the latest cars is going to require an interface which supports CAN so a cheap generic one is not going to work.

    The apps which display turbo boost you will need to make sure they specifically work with VAG cars as they do not have an actual pressure gauge and instead it has to be worked out using the engine speeds and MAF data. I know for example that the popular Torque app works but its engine diagnostics is pretty poor as it doesnt produce the same fault codes as VCDS does as it only supports ODB2.

    Don't waste your time you'll only get generic codes
    If thats the kinda thing you want look at x431 auto diag android or idiag for apple its just the adaptor 40-109 usd ,each brand software 66usd each
    These have great coverage from personal experience i would stand over x431 than snap off

    Just had a look at these, what's the difference between this and the x tool? Will this one read for my fault codes on a 56 plate a3?

    X431 is very good i have diagun i also had idiag for apple was good coverage was good only reason i didn't keep i unlocked my diagun lifetime updates free
    66usd for audi will cover every model from obd1 need to buy older connectors (ie yellow case ) to obd2 plus it will update that make for 1 yr adding new functions ...... Plus you can add other brands or buy bulk euro,asian ....
    If you use andriod version you can use another web site which is cheaper
    If you go to x431.com dbscars web page you check update releases
    Stay clear easy diag ...
