Less than one star if possible Not impressed , so far . Painfully slow to connect to my Audi. Even slower to navigate between menus, button press lag will get it things confused so wait ...between presses for it to respond. Seems to lock up all the time and must be disconnected and start over. When it does connect the and reads data it only captures the most simplistic signals. Others say supported but only display dashes. Very poor manual . Only shows how to change the contrast and other worthless changes and not much else that is useful. Sad... I’ll try an update but guess what, no instructions or links, no surprise.... I’m sure I’ll want to return it for a refund so wish me luck

Hello Dear Sir 
Here is the download link for the updatetool
by Mr.christopher Bansemer on Dec 7, 2019
I have this exact tool, and it is as good as the vagcom it self! The problems when people are trying to update this tool, is that the sd card needs to be put into a adapter and plugged in to the computer.. If you formt the sd card, you need to contact xtool customer service for help.. You just download the upgrade tool on and sign in with the s/n and password located in "about" tab in the scanners menu..
Then select the sd card you inserted to your pc, and click update. This is THE scanner for vw and audi + scoda etc. Hands down.

I bought this to run my diesel pump on a 2015 TDi to prime the high pressure fuel pump, but the device does not appear to have this function. I will likely be returning it and acquiring the OBDeleven tool.

hello dear support team i got an vag401scanner that i cant update ,it seems it always stuck on downloading section and wouldnt move forward^^.i take out the sd card and formattet it ,install upgradetool new and i think maybe its the reason he would not update casued by a wrong sd-card filesystem (likely fat32,fat or ntfs) now i need to know which filesystem is the standart for the vag401 scanner to make sure the upgradetool can communicate with the sd-card in the cardreader.

Unable to locate update for xtool vag401 scanner. It does not perform basic settings. Please provide feedback.
by Mr.Vince Saavedra on Oct 4, 2018
So far it's worked for pulling some codes and erasing codes, I haven't had time to really explore all the functions on this tool, I also wish it came with a more in depth manual, this manual is really just a basic overview of the different screens that are available, it doesn't have detailed instructions on how to preform the many functions this tool is capable of and could really get the average car owner who's looking to repair his/her own car into a lot of trouble real quick especially on VW and Audi's that are code heavy and I haven't seen any place on the website where one can get a more detailed manual You guys should really think about producing one! other than this I am happy with it, like I said so far I've only pulled some codes and today I'm going to test my MAF I'll let You know how that goes!

Salve, ho acquistato il VAG401 su amazon e riportava la possibilità di mettere la lingua italiana con un aggiornamento del software.
Ho provato a fare l'aggiornamento software con il programma "Upgrade Tool" ma mi rimane sempre lingua inglese:
Hardware version 5.3
Software version 7.0
Release date 02/19/13

Mi potete aiutare?

Grazie in anticipo.

My VAG disconnected while replacing the rear brakes on my 2013 Audi S6. Now, it doesn't seem to want to connect via the same steps as I used to retract the EPB. How do I use the VAG to reset the EPB so that the lights on the dash and EPB button are no longer flashing?
