Help understanding different software options
Hi,
I'm based in Switzerland and just got a Renault Koleos 2011 Model. I am now trying to understand what the different software options are and the pros and cons. Very generic question I'm sorry. I used to have A VW Polo so used the VAG ODIS, Etka and ElsaWin as it covered everything and was used by VW dealerships.
For Renault I'd like to be able to get the servicing manual (as no Haynes manual exists even for basic work), a fully specified OBD II reader to be able to read, reset and program as required and if possible program a new key card too.
Finally depending on how it is setup, the ability to find out the actual part numbers of spares required.
I'm lost between CanClip vs DDT4All etc as well as what i can use Dialogsys for etc. The diffrerences between normal CanClip vs CanClip reprogram etc etc etc.
Finally I saw that there are different Dongles (different chips inside) but couldn't work out the pros and cons between them.
Many thanks

RE: Help understanding different software options
I only can do a few tips:

For reprogramiing with Can Clip the only VCI clone avaliable is the yellow board with AN2131QC (maybe others on more moderm versions but yellow board)

For parts the Renault Dialogsys is the best tool, there are generic EPCs , but not as complete.

There are a aplication called Renolink specializated on Renault Group who has very good opinions, search on forums more nfo.

And there are multibrand tools such as Launch EASYDIAG X431 PRO3S Full Activated that for me is the natural option if you are going to change car brand or plan to intervene in cars of various brands without limitations.

Thanks Gargamel.

Got hold of a copy of Dialogys but haven't managed to really get to grips with it yet. It seems nowhere near as user friendly as Elsawin and Etka but maybe because I can't find my way around and maybe it's not a good version.

Still trying to decide on th ebesy OBD option. Just am a little concerned with some of the "multu-vehicle" options, that they cannot actually do that many more specialised tasks. Re-calibrating sensors etc. So will carry on researching.
Cheers
