The newly-released clone VAG CAN PRO full kit with VCP v5.5.1 at eobdtool.co.uk – eobdtool today is verified to work ok (diagnosis, coding & programming) as the original does, said engineers and users.
Q; Is the VAG PRO a full version?
A: yes, it’s VAG CAN full kit.
Q: Does clone vag can supports coding and programming?
A: definitely yes. The VAG PRO at eobdtool can do coding and programming as the original.
Moreover, the clone doesn’t need engineer codes for coding or programming, while the genuine needs it.
Q: Does it support UDS protocol?
A: yes. It supports CAN BUS, UDS, K-line.
Firmware: VAG CAN PRO china clone
Software: VCP version 5.5.1
VAG CAN PRO 5.5.1 update news:
Support for new addresses entered in the MLB-Evo platform
Update database-ODX (support for all models 2015)
VAG CAN PRO review:
I have in my hand for testing purposes vag can pro 5.5.1 (SP275) with QC mark.. Not sure if I will use it since I have already enabled keyless entry. That was the purpose of purchasing it but after I managed to flash with obdlink SX usb and SRT can-connect russian program it is a feature I will not test. The other reason was to get the radio concert 0350 firmware but clone version does not come with this, only original has it.
(RG3_ECE_0350.sgo (or the rar container RG3_ECE_0350.rar)
It was bought for self usage but it will remain in my luggage of not used diagnostics unless it is needed in the future. Also testing to see complexity and if it is worth to buy original.
It comes with the zdc file for enabling keyless entry and many other zdc parameters which I have no clue what they do. I have used VCDs for enabling all other options. VCDs can not flash or activate new parameters which are disabled in firmware.
Not sure if it can unlock used control units.
It can flash firmware (e.g. .sgo) but I know that vas 5054a with Odis engineering is quicker. Also flash option is not available with VCDs.
It can function with and without usb dongle by replacing 2 DLLs. It needs usb dongle if dll files are not replaced.
Please post your questions and experience regarding this clone.
The original is much better, supported, tested, can download zdc and firmware through the manager app, and has version 8. The original VCP price is not bad (though postage cost is high), so I recommend it compared to VAS5054a however it can be used to complement VCDs i.e. to be used as an add on but not as a VCDs replacement.
Best value / usage (all perform the same as diagnostic)
1. VCDs (best for coding)
2. VCP (price similar to VCDs)
Best for flashing firmware
2. VAG CAN PRO VCP
Best for calibrations:
2. VCDs/VCP (VCP has some service functions automated with one click OCF)
Best for activating keyless entry
1. SRT can-connect (has more features which I have not tested). I will create a new thread on this.
2. VCP (not tested but I believe I know how, seems more complex since you have to select all 8 parameters for flashing, coupe 2 door vs 4 door selection)
VAS5054a cannot enable keyless entry even even with Odis engineering. Tried to save current parameters to see if I can modify keyless but in almost every control module it asks for a security code, so I cannot save existing parameters.
Unlocking control units:
1. VCP???? Not tested but if it does it should be complex. First in case it does support this.
2. Vas5054a (Audi dealer)
VCP can add other parameters such as VIM but I only have radio concert so I cannot test this function. Can connect has some functions that resemble VCP or VCDs (but automated).
VAS5054a used with odis-S or odis-E
Odis-E can fix failed flash of control units unlike odis-S. I believe VCP has the same capability since it can flash offline
More reviews of VAG CAN PRO:
** Audi A4 8E B6 owner says:
This model has a can-bus (TP1.6), but it is not connected to the diagnostic socket. The car is fully diagnosed on the K-line (VCP required interface + K). Used protocols KWP2000 and KWP1281 it.
** Audi A4 8E, B7 owner says:
This model has a CAN BUS TP2.0, but the diagnostic socket is only connected to the so-called CAN-Antrieb, i.e. Engine, transmission, airbags, ABS, Quattro drive.
In addition, a standard K-line. In other words, VCP fully supports the diagnosis B7 models, but only in the CAN-Antrieb. Other controllers are available through the K-Line and KWP2000 KWP1281 protocols.
** Mike talks about differences between VAG PRO (VCP) and VCDS:
I have both, and can say with absolute certainty that VCP does NOT replace VCDS in any way.
VAG CAN Commander is a tool used to retrieve and modify information from the program area of the ECU.
VCDS will give full access to all control modules in the car for diagnostic purposes. It will not allow you to modify the program memory of any ECU. Having said that, VCDS does allow you to “code” a module – selecting different factory installed options. All diagnostic procedures performed by the factory tool at the dealer can be performed using the VCDS tool. In fact, the tool design is made to conform with the same terminology used on the factory tool so that factory repair information can be used with the VCDS tool.
s on your PC. VCDS only supports the functions built into the modules that were intended by the designers for diagnosing problems and effecting repair of those problems.

VCDS and VAG PRO + K are very close level features (there is also a small resemblance in the software interface of the two).
VCDS is the best known and most used of the two, so you more easily find topics on speaking forums VCDS that VAG PRO + K.
diagnostic Level, VCDS exceeds VAG PRO + K, even if it progresses from version to version.
coding level, some encodings are sometimes not possible with VCDS then they are with VAG PRO + K (RLFS coding, coding ESP, also VIM coding which is a “specialty” of VAG PRO + K).
more anecdotally, sometimes with some encodings require VCDS resume it several times before it is taken into account by the vehicle, while with VAG PRO + K it works 1 shot.
the VAG CAN + K PRO software has a list of predefined functions, kinds of shortcuts to quickly do some actions without knowing the value of adaptation or corresponding coding.
It also has a backup feature and flashing the entire contents of a computer, that does not have the VCDS software.
prices level, it’s a little more complicated for VAG PRO + K.
in official, there is a price to pay (€ 306.27) for the purchase of the interface (this price includes free updates for 1 year), there is a price to pay (50 € per year) for 1 year annual subscription to updates and there are also 3 price to pay to activate each of the three following additional features:
flash EDC-16 (65 €),
ESP coding (95 €),
access to all files for VIM coding on various VAG vehicles (105 €).
(it is rare, but the VAG CAN + K PRO interface is also in clone / unofficial 3 with additional features enabled, clone VAG PRO for nearly 45€ from http://www.eobdtool.co.uk/wholesale/vag-can-pro.html .)
