    Default VIN License

    So, I ended up buying a used V2 and a RR package. The V2 did not have any available VIN licenses, so I purchased an additional one and I have it available.

    Before I use that license up, I wanted to know if I am using the RR to scan, will it use that VIN license? In other words, would I need to purchase 2 VIN licenses to scan my stock PCM and the RR with the V2 software?

    Scanning does not use a license, only flashing does. And i think the RR uses a license other than a VIN license, although I could be wrong.

    You need to purchase a RR license to be able to make real-time tuning adjustments with it: http://www.efilive.com/licenses/tuni...altime-license

    As Cougar281 said, scanning/logging/clearing codes/reading controllers is free, only when you write changes to a particular controller do you need to license it.
