We are very pleased to announce that Volkswagen vehicles will be added to the CDR Tool software coverage. Bosch has released a software patch containing coverage for select 2015 Volkswagen vehicles sold in USA.
The Bosch CDR Tool will support imaging EDR data of 2015 Volkswagen vehicles through the Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC) and directly from the Airbag Control Module (ACM). New Bosch CDR cables will be required to image a vehicle directly at the ACM.
New Vehicle Coverage Version 13.0.1
New Vehicle Coverage Version 13.0
The CDR Reader software allows access to the current CDR software program, but DOES NOT allow you to download CDR data from supported vehicles, to add full functionality you will need to purchase a CDR software subscription and install the activation certificate.
CDR Software Subscription
Unleash all capabilities of the CDR software by purchasing a CDR software subscription. Once you become a subscriber, you will be sent an Activation Certificate each time a new release of CDR software becomes available during your subscription period. The Activation Certificate is used to turn on all capabilities of the CDR software and allow you to image crash data from supported vehicles.
NOTE: CDR software subscriptions do not include CDR hardware release updates. All CDR hardware release updates will need to be purchased separately.
Each new CDR Software release includes new capabilities and functions which enable you to access crash data from the latest passenger cars, light trucks and SUVs. As the capabilities in supported vehicles evolve software changes may be required for your CDR Tool in order to enable communication with and translate crash data from these vehicles.
CDR Software and Pricing

To place your order by phone, please call (800) 280-7940
The CDR software uses an Activation Certificate to 'turn on' functions available only to subscribers. An Activation Certificate is needed for every new version of CDR software therefore, when a new software version becomes available, the Bosch License Manager System emails all current subscribers a new activation certificate along with installation instructions.
Activation certificates are obtained by purchasing or renewing software subscription. When you purchase a software subscription, you will receive an email from Bosch Diagnostics (SEE BELOW) that include the Activation Certificate file and full instructions for activating your CDR File Reader Software.
Bosch recommends that subscribers keep their Activation Certificates just in case they need to reinstall their software on a new machine or deactivate software on one machine and re-activate on another. Activation certificates can only be used for CDR software versions they are created for.
