What else you should know: Quality depends on the inner board

vas 6154 pcb:

VAS 6154 china clone interface comes with inner boards updated & improved a lot.

There are two 6154 versions: one with wireless network & USB modules and the other without wireless network module (the wireless network module can be retrofitted at any time provided national regulations permit).

What else you should know:  VAS-PC vs ODIS
You can’t to use any older Odis version for GEKO, you need latest 4.0.0 and also if you are erwin user you need to have and to replace the with the new supported one……….Rauch15
If you are erwin user all this info you can read when you logon with your acount……Wink
But of course you can try to use the older Odis 3.0.3 with the new keystore file……..533


What else you should know:  ODIS or VCDS or VCP: which best?
ODIS is OEM, so it fully supports every VAG model, and it’s best for flashing
but it’s slow and you need online connection for being able to do a lot of things
Vas 6154 head should run faster with ODIS than 5054A


VCDS is super fast, best to read DTC’s and do basic stuff (diagnosis) and some simple coding
but it doesn’t work well with new MQB platform.


VCP is little bit a mix of those, best for parametring and quick eeprom read and DTC fast read
every feature (coding & programming) is done offline
Doesn’t need engineer codes for coding or programming
work very well with MQB
