What is included in the Hyundai and Kia EDR tool kits?
Each kit includes all components required to download supported vehicles through the DLC/OBDII port. Each kit also includes many of the additional components needed for D2M (direct -to-module) downloads. The Hyundai and Kia EDR kits each include a unique selection of ACU adapter cables to connect the corresponding VCI device directly the ACU (airbag control unit) for a benchtop or in-vehicle download. ACU adapters for the newest vehicles must be purchased separately.
For a detailed list of components included in either kit, please review their corresponding product page on our website.
Can I purchase the hardware components needed for just DLC downloads?
No, GIT only offers the current Basic EDR kit configuration ONLY. The Hyundai or Kia VCIs cannot be purchased separately.
The Hyundai and Kia VCIs look remarkably similar. May I purchase one tool and a subscription for each brand?
No. While the Hyundai VCI (blue) and the Kia VCI (red) tools look alike, each requires a dedicated, brand specific software subscription. The Kia EDR software will NOT run on a Hyundai VCI. The Hyundai EDR software will NOT run on a Kia VCI.
What is the CFCI Module Adapter?
The CFCI Module is an optional adapter required to perform D2M (direct-to-module) ACU downloads for select 2021 and newer Hyundai and Kia vehicles. These newer vehicles use a CAN-FD communication protocol that is not supported either the Hyundai VCI or Kia VCI on their own. The CFCI module connects between the VCI and the corresponding ACU adapter cable, allowing the corresponding VCI to communicate with CAN-FD airbag module.
