Durametric Version 6


Recommended Posts

Has anybody had problems with the drive links function on Durametric 6 on a 996tt?

I can get them to work no problems on version 5 but on 6 it causes a " Not Responding " error or it just doesn't do anything.

The clear code functions and live readings work ok.

It would be great to hear from anybody else who has used version 6.

Thanks in advance.

What does the drive link function do? I'll try when i get home but want to know what it does first.

Be careful it is a Beta version!!! There is a report of a malfunction for 996 models....

"Drive link".

aloud you to do many functions like cooling fans in all three stages, vario cam plus function of the different solenoids, fuel pump, a/c compressor on/off, engine compartment purge fan, injection valves etc etc....

As I posted on another thread, there is a new SW version available. The new ver is 6.0.2.0. I uninstalled ver 6.0.1.9 and then downloaded the new ver. To my knowledge this is the only SW(Beta 6.0) that will read DFI cars which is my case.

That's me , downloaded the newest version and it is still just as temperamental. Will read and reset codes but live data will make Durametric "not Responding" if you have more then 2 open.

Drive links are all but useless, eg Run fans any stage you get "clunk" fan tries to run but wont run. Its the same for almost all the drive links.

Tip box module just wont connect.

The old version 5 works fine....

so I can safely say there is no point running the version 6 on my 996tt.

Any body else using the latest 6.0.2.0 version on a 996tt.

Perhaps Durametric have concentrated on the 997 and not too bothered about the 996????

Update...

I have done some more testing.

I can ,after a few attempts, access Tiptronic module. For fault codes and module info.

I can enter most other modules and do some drive links, so long as the engine is not running. But all the drive links for the Motronic will not work no matter how I try. I keep getting an exception report has ben raise and the programe is "not responding".

Most of the modules accessed will allow fault code reading and reset and also module ID and info.

I haven't tried coding because, well ,I haven't anything to code.

I could open A/C flaps run fans etc.

I could not do any drive links on the alarm system . ie activate the alarm form the activation inputs etc. but could find module id, fault codes etc.

So... It would appear that there are lots of problems with it, but some things do work. Unfortunately you have to know what will work that version 5 does not have.

Anybody else done some testing.

Uhm,

I bought it May/June 2010 from http://www.hickleys.com/diagnostics/durametric.php so it is supposed to be althought it was a doubt of mine. I'm not 100% sure??.

I have spoken to them and didn't come away with a finite answer.

It has the box at the end and of the cable and has the light /led in the side of the connector box. Written on the same side is:

Durametric Software inc

For use on:

PORSHE

durametric.com

* ( Led)

and on the other side of the connector box:

Professional

Version.

Both writtten exactly the way I have written them.

Frank.

  • Cables with the electronics in the connector can be either first or second generation.
    • If the cable has the light on the side that reads "Durametric," then it is a second generation interface cable and it is compatible.
    • If the cable has the light on the side that reads "Enthusiast" or "Professional," then it is a first generation interface cable and not compatible.
