You need the APR Dongle to use the device.

Correct?
Correct.

APR Dongle - Required
APR App - Required
APR Moble Supported ECU Upgrade - Required

Arin,

Will this system only access the ECU control module? I would love to get rid of VAGCom and utilize only my Ipad and get rid of the need to carry my laptop around with me in my car.

Will be purchasing soon.

The biggest kicker for me is even easier switching programs and fault code erase on the go. Good call APR.

The price for the Dongle and free software is basically the same model as VCDS cable. Which is fair IMO. Just need Android support...it'll be interesting to bake VCDS functionality in, but I'd imagine that won't be easy since Rosstech is doing that stuff...

I wonder if you can use the same dongle with other BT enabled app?

This... I would be all over it if I could also use this as a VAGCOM replacement.

I don't know if you could do the coding (led lights, seatbelt chime disable, etc) with this APR unit.

I think you would want to keep your VAGCOM cable if you had multiple VDubs in the family.

Considering Vagcom stuff is RossTech's software that they wrote to allow you to access the coding of the car, unless APR work out their own version of all the coding functionality, or pay RossTech to license theirs, we probably won't get that.
