How to Use Vident iSmart800 Pro/Foxflash to Diagnose and Read VW Simos 18.1

eobdtool.co.uk engineer makes a test on a new VW Simos 18.1 ECU and confirms that Vident iSmart800 Pro/ Foxflash ECU Chip Tuning Tool works well with Godiag GT105 plus GT107 to diagnose and read this ECU separately.

 

What role does Godiag GT105 and GT107 play in the test?

Help you to clearly check the communication status during the diagnosis, data reading, and writing process.

The CAN protocol is used, and when plugging in GT105, the corresponding CAN H and CAN L indicator light up, indicating that the diagnostic tool/ECU programmer and ECU communication is OK.
