Is VAD Mobile Compatible With My Car?

VAD Mobile Wireless communicates over the K-Line and CAN-Bus networks and is compatible with nearly all VW/Audi vehicles (excluding 2008+ A5/S5, 2009+ A4/S4/Q5, and select 2010 modules under the new UDS protocol). Because the VAD software is constantly being updated, please contact VAD to confirm whether your vehicle is compatible.

The "Original" VAD-Mobile is compatible with virtually all VW/Audi Group vehicles with ECU's that communicate over the K-Line network. This covers most models up to the 2004 model year. VAD Mobile cannot connect with ECU's that communicate over the CAN-Bus network, so it has limited compatibility with newer vehicles.

The following list is a sample of VAG vehicles that the Original VAD Mobile will communicate with; both from the North American and European Markets. If your vehicle does not appear on the list, it may still be compatible. Please contact us if you require further clarification.

Vehicle Database

When performing a vehicle scan using VAD Mobile, the tool will search through the extensive list of every possible existing VW/Audi ECU to determine which ones are present in your vehicle. To save time, VAD Mobile includes a database of pre-defined vehicles where all of the ECU's found in that specific car have been identified and saved in the Vehicle List.

The vehicle list is by no means exhaustive and is being updated on a regular basis. If your exact model is not shown in the database, do not fear; there is a simple procedure with VAD to add your vehicle to the content.
