    Hiya, Just trying to get some info on the carsoft software, I have the 6.5 version but I seem to get lots of Module not responding messages on the search, also I can't read and live data like DME...(or scan it)...

    Could this be my cable? It's a Prolific USB to Serial, or is this my car model?...

    Also what can you do different in later versions like 8.0? or 8.5...

    Cheers - Tom

    With the risk of sounding stupid here..(I'm not too good at the electrical side) what's ADS? and does this mean my Carsoft package is no good on my car?...

    ADS is BMW's car communication system for diagnostics and pre dates the generic full OBD system which came into being after 1996 when manufacturers were forced to standardise and adopt the generic system, but BMW still has its own system aswell which still runs alongside it on cars after 1996, before then its ADS only..

    all cars were OBD2 compliant roughly after 1996 give or take a a couple of years depending on make and model..

    carsoft is a generic (any car) system not BMW specific..
