the vag tool will be connected to both the car and the PC at the same time. So you have to have the PC close enough that the cable can reach both.

Before I got my laptop I used a 50 Ft patch cable.
It did the job. You can clear codes , change things ect.
But all the same, it's a bitch if you want to monitor values ect.

Hey, heres a thought. I will be down your way in a few weeks. (Plantation)
You can come around to my inlaws and try the thing out if you would like.

Erm Orange County, CA? You have the Vag-Com, I'll have the 6 pack of your choice!

I have a remote transponder chip I need to program.
