|Sole CDR Distributor US & Canada|
Release: CDR Software release 15.0 is now available
Bosch is pleased to announce the release of the new CDR 500 Adapter and version 15.0 software. Version 15 now includes coverage for Alfa Romeo and updates to other OE's.
Update 12/31/14: CDR 500's should beging shipping in January. Some stock has arrived at the Bosch warehouse and should be delivered to Crash Data Group's warehouse any day now.
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. This is an adapter to be used in conjunction with the current Bosch CDR Tool and will be needed for certain direct to ACM imaging.
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.
