VNCI 6154A:

Cheapest, plug and play, easy to use.

Not need any license for VNCI. Use normal odis installation with launcher.

Running original drivers without any modifications to drivers. Basically you do not need install extra driver becase VNCI 6154A is the same as genuine one except for appearance,

Seems to work fast without any disconnections and displays the voltage, auto scan took less than one minute to complete.

There is option to change serial number in VNCI firmware update tool

Has positive reviews.

Only 6154 supports DoIP and CAN FD protocols.

For VAG only. Cannot be used as passthru device.




VCX SE simulates a VAS6154, as well as all other Vxdiag products.

It has license and need to renew every 60 days.

Need to update driver to use latest odis

Can be used as j2534 passthru device for many original factory software

Users can add extra brands to the device by paying license

It is not good for older kline models but good for new models. programmed more than 50 cars all newer than 2014 even a 2022 new platform audi a3, works a dream



Tabscan 6154:

Both VCX Se and tabscan 6154 + C can be used as vas6154 and passthru devices.

It based on tabscan driver.

Don’t have much reviews.


Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. VNCI 6154 is good for beginners.
