The Crash Data Retrieval Tool

The CDR Tool is a commercially available tool, allowing you to image crash data directly from all supported vehicles giving you a detailed report of critical data parameters leading up to and during a crash. Some of the parameters include pre-crash data, vehicle speed, brake status, throttle position, ignition cycles, delta-V, seat belt status, and others.

CDR 500 FlexRay Adapter and Cable Bundle Pre-Sale
Pre-Order and Save $350

CDR 500CDR 500 FlexRay Adapter

Bosch will introduce a new CDR adapter in November 2014. This new adapter will be called the Bosch CDR 500. The CDR 500 enables the CDR Tool to retrieve data directly from ECUs with a FlexRay communications network. This advanced technology is much different than traditional CAN or K-Line networks currently supported by the CDR Tool.

The first application of the Bosch CDR 500 will be for select BMW and MINI vehicles sold in the USA and Canada. In the near future, the CDR 500 will be required for direct-to-model imaging on Audi and other OEM brands.

For a limited time Crash Data Group is offering the CDR 500 FlexRay Adapter and supported cables at a substantial discount for those who pre-order prior to November 15, 2014. Order during the pre-sale promotion and save $350.00 off the MSRP and Crash Data Group will also through in a FREE Bosch embroidered nylon case (a $40 value). We are offering the pre-sale pricing for 45 days instead of the typical 30 due to the price point.
