Pathfinder and SDD, what’s the difference?


1.The JLR Pathfinder software

(You must have a online account to work with it; won’t offer it)


It is the only unit that will be compatible with the Pathfinder software and all JLR vehicles with the new vehicle architectures found in 2017 and newer vehicles (from the Range Rover/Range Rover Sport L405/L494). In addition to the 2017 and newer vehicles, the JLR DoIP VCI will also be capable of interfacing with 2014 through 2016 Multi-CAN architecture vehicles (see application list below).


2.The SDD software

(If you want to do programming, you must have an online account)


All 2014-2017 with no DOIP and earlier (2006 to 2014) land rover and Jaguar will still use the JLR SDD software.


Why we use JLR Pathfinder instead of SDD?


The reason for SDD being retired and Pathfinder being introduced is more because of the contract with Ford expiring, as the SDD is based on the Ford IDS, so JLR has to pay Ford to keep using it.

The major change to the cars themselves is the infotainment system, the Next Generation Infotainment (NGI) is an ethernet-based system, vs the older MOST fibre-optic infotainment i.e. the IAM2.1

So yeah, you could not (easily or economically) retrofit the NGI system into an IAM2.1 car, for example. The components and network are totally different.

But… the NGI has been in some JLR vehicles since 2016, and is supported by SDD. There will be a cutoff where new models are no longer supported by SDD and only by Pathfinder. But Pathfinder also works on older vehicles too, back to 2014MY (approximately).

How to use STC SVCI DoIP diagnostic tool?


If you want to use the SVCI DoIP device normally, you have to download and install three software:

Pathfinder, SDD2 and SDD2 “QuickLoader” software.


These three software can be installed in the same operating system together,

and when you use SDD2 software,  you have to open it from the SDD2 “QuickLoader” software.

And when the software is installed, the device needs to be connected to the laptop and vehicle.


The Pathfinder software is primarily intended for Jaguar Land rover models manufactured in 2017 and beyond,

The SDD2 software is mainly aimed at Jaguar Land rover 2016 years models and before.
