What requirements do I need to use Odis Geko?

To use ODIS (Offboard Diagnostic Information System) along with the Geko (GeKo is the German acronym for “Gesicherter Zugang und Kodierung”, which translates to “Secured Access and Coding”) service, which is specific to the Volkswagen Group’s range of vehicles (including Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, and Seat), certain requirements must be met. These requirements ensure secure, authorized, and effective use of the system for vehicle diagnostics, programming, and online coding. Here are the general requirements:

Hardware Requirements:

  1. Compatible Diagnostic Interface: A genuine or approved VAS (Vehicle Diagnostic, Testing and Information System) interface such as VAS 5054, VAS 6154, or a similar compatible interface is required for connecting the vehicle to the ODIS software.
  2. Computer System: A laptop or PC with sufficient processing power, RAM, and hard disk space to run the ODIS software efficiently. The exact specifications can vary based on the ODIS version but generally include a Windows-based operating system.
  3. Network Connection: A stable and reliable internet connection is required for accessing the Geko online services, downloading updates, and performing online coding and programming tasks.

Software Requirements:

  1. ODIS Software: The latest version of the ODIS software needs to be installed on your computer. This software is typically provided to authorized service centers and may require a subscription.
  2. Vehicle Data: Access to the latest vehicle data, updates, and firmware, which are often downloaded through the ODIS software from the Volkswagen Group’s servers.
