      A few questions
      1.where are the actual units made, Shenzhen China? Or somewhere else?
      2.Where can I get the crack this guy is smoking
      http://www.ebay.com/itm/2013D-Volvo-..._Tools&vxp=mtr
      it must be real good...

      Im looking to pick up one if I can use it with hiltontune. Still haven't figured that out yet... looks like a firmware version of 5.5.0 is what they need.

      Also you say $170 with shipping. Is it $170 plus shipping or shipping included?

      Sorry also is the firmware version 5.5.0 or higher? Thanks!

    7. #5
      Shipping cost is included in price. And if item gets faulty I also cover return costs for buyer.

      Firmware version is 5.6.12. Firmware can be updated or downgraded. Also keep in mind that memory where firmware is stored has limited amount of erase/write cycles(~1000) so better not to play with it very often. New firmware can be downloaded from https://www.volvotechinfo.com/index....oftwareUpdates also new VIDA pushes firmware automatically if update is required to work with it. (One of the reasons why cheaper clones die after firmware update) Original and good copies use Renesas M30855 microcontroller with motorola firmware. So if you have Dice with different microcontroller you can use it only with software which was supplied when you bought it.
      I'm not making these or something like that. I'm getting them from HongKong. Doing "quality control". I drive Volvo so each unit is tested on my car. My price of course is higher than from china, but VAT and import taxes is already paid for EU buyers plus shipping time is different. Also I offer support for setting up software. I offer setups that work on any OS and any hardware PC. I know that some people buying separate laptops with 3GB ram and then installs XP just for VIDA which I say is waste of money.

      P.S. There is huge difference in quality between this http://i.imgur.com/UzkmQog.jpg and green PCB. Both has multicolor LEDs and works with original firmware. But build quality is like day and night from stickers, case to soldering and components. If you checked Chinese sites blue version is always cheaper than green one and there is point for that.
      I have full box of of these blue ones because my EX supplier thought that there is no difference, I'm not brave enough to sell these on ebay... Some of these units showed battery voltage 62 volts http://i.imgur.com/SJVKnTy.jpg If some is interested in these price is only 115$ they all works but I can not guarantee accurate measurements...


      I hope some info will help you to get correct device.

      Just wanted to chime in and say I recently purchased this unit from Digital-Life and LOVE it. You get what you pay for and I was pleased at what I received. Thanks Darius!

      I also wanted to recommend doing the Volvo training (on-line). It is somewhat clunky but if you have IE8, the training modules will run and it is the best training on using VIDA/Dice I've seen yet.

      https://www.volvotechinfo.com/vtiSha...hInd/index.htm

      Play around on the Volvo website as well.

      https://www.volvotechinfo.com/index....o.specialtools

      Note: I also installed the freebie XP VM V2012 VIDA software downloaded from SS, and it had IE8 on it that ran such that the weird Volvo VIDA/Dice training website issues were not present. You might try that if you are having IEx problems.

      2nd Note: I nearly drained my car battery playing around with this excellent tool on my car. The dealer has a ~$300 regulated power supply that they attach to the car battery for such activity (regular car battery charger will not work). You can use a batter jump box (a big one) or put two of them together on the car battery to help give you more time but the car sucks some serious amperage when not running and in ignition position II.

      3rd Note: I didn't know about the Forum member discount when I ordered mine and missed out on the discount. Please be sure to contact Darius (i.e, Digital-Life) first to inquire about it before ordering.

      Hi Digital Life,

      Can I use your unit to reprogram the radio and dash language to english?

      My Volvo S40 is a japanese import, so the radio and instrument cluster are in Japanese.

      Can I also update the radio frequency? Because Japanese radio frequency are not the intl standard too

      Thanks

    14. #12
      Hi,
      to change dash language you will need to buy subscription from volvo and software package for this procedure . Also you can try these guys http://volvocesky.cz/en/ they provide software package via online update to change language.
      I do not know about frequency is this just software thing or hardware mus be updated also.

      I searched the username he listed and it doesn't look like he has any items up for sale.

      I did find this though from another Swedespeed forum that looks legit.

      I have the VIDA unit and 2014A installed on my computer. Will I break anything if I upgrade to windows 10? Figured you might be the best guy to ask since you claimed above it works on XP through 10.

      It hard to tell it depends on software and windows updates on your PC. It works on WIN10 a have setup several win10 tabets with 2014D version. You will definitely need to edit some IE settings on win10 to make vida page work. You can make backup of your PC and then try.

      Hi,

      Main difference is that new models is added with each version and bugs fixed for older models.
      You can find which models is effected by 2014D in release notes https://www.volvotechinfo.com/index....News-2014D.pdf
      Also A is last version which can be installed on windows XP - important who still uses windows XP.
      B&D is basically the same just D is newer.

      Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

      I just got home yesterday, my DiCE and VIDA had arrived. Followed the instructions and it works.

      It's easier to connect than previous diagnosis systems I had used and I am happy with it, very happy.

      Big thumbs up on this one guys :-)

      Thanks Digital Life!!

      Any chance for a discount on the one without the EWDs? I have no use for the diagrams but I'd love to be able to take advantage of all the other uses. Based on how good people say your product is even if the discount is not quite as big on the cheaper setup it would still be worth the premium.

      I just bought one and installed it last week. There were a few issues with IE11 default settings and no Java installed, but the hardware and software works fine and Darius was very helpful in getting it working.
