Is this is for VIDA 2015 ?
So with VIDA ’15 being 100% internet based, does this mean the beginning of the end for Chinese knockoff clones with pirated VIDA-All-In-One software?
Will VIDA 2014D be the last version that can be used without an active subscription to Volvo HQ servers?
Volvo says VIDA ’15 is 100% internet based, which means you will always have the most current information at your fingertips. Changes and corrections can be applied with a much shorter lead time.
“VIDA 2015 is 100% internet based, which means you will always have the most current information at your fingertips.”
Or should that be
“VIDA 2015 is 100% the end of hacks, and might be the end of shadetree Volvo diagnosis, depending on how high we price it.”
VIDA stands for “Vehicle Information and Diagnostics for Aftersales”. A VIDA subscription could include service and parts information along with wiring schematics, and the ability to download software to a vehicle. Product subscriptions are ranged to be appropriate for a full-service shop through to a stand-alone parts counter.
The wiring schematics for MY’s 1994-2016 * are available as separate online PDF type subscription products.
*Wiring schematics for MY 2016 and newer (XC90, S90,V90 and similar platform vehicles) are only viewable within a VIDA subscription that includes Diagnostics or Diagnostics and Software Download.
