will it work with china-clone DICE?
how much do you need to pay for each downloaded software file?
I'd like to check if I can get the newest transmission software, heated seats turned-on software, maybe some other misc updated

what are you looking to do? usually, its cheaper to let the dealer do it unless you have a lineup of cars or many SW packages to download.

just some updates to the computers and turn on seat heaters in my 03 v70.
i probably need to schedule a maintenance visit for 03 v70 as they have the free SW updates with those.
I was just curious if the 3-day would work for a private person and how they charge you for SW.

It works just like it does for shops...you get the sub, they send you 2 DVD's and you load the real VIDA up to your computer, activate the subscription then order the SW. you have to pay for the SW after you purchase it on VIDA through volvotechinfo.com, go back to VIDA and then it loads to the car.

on top of that, you likely wont be able to add seat heaters, Volvo wont allow independants to download software that alters the car configuration.

that's a big letdown. i guess it's time to shell out some cash for updates + alterations.
Darn!

Considering trying this myself... as I've recently ordered a cheapo chinese knockoff DiCE unit.

Anyone have firm proof/experience about what can and can't be done with an "independent" subscription to VIDA? Aka, what can't be done, that can be done at a dealer?

Thanks!
