Which CDR Tool is Right For Me?
Crash Data Group now offers three entry levels for purchasing a Bosch CDR Tool kit.
When getting started in the Crash Data Retrieval business, you must first understand that this is an ever-expanding tool set. As auto manufacturers release new model year vehicles, they also have to coordinate with Bosch Automotive Service Solutions to assure the EDR data is accessible using the CDR Tool. Sometimes manufacturers can utilize an existing CDR cable to support a new model year vehicle; however, sometimes a new CDR cable has to be manufactured and added to the cable list. New vehicles may also require a new adapter or other piece of equipment to retrieve the crash data accurately. Crash Data Group has no control over new hardware or when it is released. We are simply here to make them available to you.
The CDR Basic Kit is the entry level or what some call the "DLC" kit. It contains all of the hardware required to perform a DLC retrieval of the EDR data. In simplest terms, this kit provides the minimum amount of hardware to access the EDR data from the OBDII port on the vehicle. The tool kit is considerably less expensive than the Deluxe or Premium due to the fact there are NO direct-to-module ACM cables or ACM adapters in this kit. This kit is recommended for those who will typically retrieve data through the OBDII (DLC) port on the vehicle. You may purchase individual ACM/ROS/PCM cables and adapters when needed.
The CDR Deluxe Kit is positioned between the CDR Basic Kit and the CDR Premium Kit. While it does not have every available CDR accessory as in the CDR Premium Kit, it supports a wide-range of vehicles you may encounter. The CDR Deluxe Kit includes all the CDR hardware components of our CDR Basic Kit to perform vehicle imaging through the industry standard vehicle DLC port. In addition, it contains 35 direct-to-module (D2M) cables & adapters giving you a large coverage of supported vehicles. Crash Data Group utilizes the latest VIO (vehicle in operation) data to select appropriate cables & adapters for vehicles on the road in the USA & Canada based on vehicle population. All of the equipment is provided in our Extra-Large hard shell case. The case holds all the Basic Kit components plus the included D2M (direct-to-module) cables & adapters with plenty of extra room for additional CDR expansion.
The CDR Premium Kit includes all current CDR hardware available at the time of purchase. This kit provides everything you would receive in the Basic Kit but also contains all the hardware necessary to retrieve EDR data directly from the airbag control module if it is not possible to access the data via the OBDII (DLC) port. Currently there are over 75 additional cables and adapters included in the Premium Kit.
