VCDS doesn't just poll the fault codes out of the ECU, it attaches short descriptive labels to them. Those labels are part of VCDS, they don't come from the ECU. Everything about VCDS is Rosstech intellectual property, including the name. Mr Rosstech is every bit as litigious as the American reputation hints at. Take care out there ...Okay, I've had a look at what the colour DIS has to offer, and it is described here in this post by @timmus :
I must admit that I hadn't taken in the full range of functions on offer with the colour DIS, which is impressive. However, I don't think it helpful to describe the colour DIS as having VCDS, because that is specifically the name of Ross-Tech's software package, and that is certainly how the term VCDS is generally understood on this forum.
