Hi,

I was wondering if the ElmScan 5 Compact Works with other software? For example

1)   I install the drivers of the ElmScan 5 on my laptop.
2)   I instal also VAG-COM official lic.
3)   Then I connect my car with the ElmScan5. (VW Golf IV of 2002)
4)             Will I be able to use Vag-com?

The question is now, would it work? This is an example…

Thanks,

Hi,

The ElmScan 5 Compact works with software that is compatible with the ELM command set.  VAG-COM does not use the ELM command set.

Regards,

Jason
