The Hex-CAN+COM (or +USB) is the cable you will need.
Approx $330 U.S. Dollars.
Don't forget to download 512.1-D as the latest software, it comes with a long-code helper.
(That wasn't so bad, was it?)

Popeye

Re: VAG COM question... (Tim Birney)

Hey Popeye!
Thanks! I've been looking at these things over the last week/so ... since I took delivery of my new Jetta on 5/30. Couldn't determine from the ross tech site as to which one fit my A5. Gonna get the Bently manuals w/ the Vag-Com Software from Ross-Tech at the end of the month ... then the cable next month.
Thanka again!
Al

Has any one tried using this cable (http://www.tradekey.com/ks-hex-can-bus-cable-interface/) along with the free version of ross-tech software? Seems like it might be a cheap alternative for average users...

The shareware version of vag-com isn't going to work with the can bus

100% of fake cables don't do can bus. THey **MIGHT** do generic P codes, and that's even been reported as inaccurate code reporting.
Bottom line, get the right ross-tech interface. 100% licensed, and you can get support from them, phone or online.

Re: (syntrix)

there are some fake CAN cables that claim to work with ross-tech's software, and i've heard reports that they do work. i personally have the micro-can, and am happy with it.
