Bosch CDR 900 Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Bosch CDR 900?
The Bosch CDR 900 is a high-performance Vehicle Communications Interface (VCI) device used to connect and communicate with many complex vehicle diagnostic networks through the OBD connector and communicate directly with vehicle electronic control modules (ECUs). When connected to a Windows-based personal computer running the Bosch CDR Tool software, the Bosch CDR 900 is used for retrieval of crash data stored in one or more vehicles ECUs such as airbag control modules and pedestrian protection ECUs. The Bosch CDR 900 employs the lastest technology for communications with vehicle networks supporting the latest vehicle communications protocols.

Will the CDR 900 replace the existing CDR CANplus Module?
No. When the Bosch CDR 900 is released, you will need BOTH the current CANplus Interface Module and the CDR 900 Interface Module.

You will need the existing CANplus Interface Module to image the current vehicle coverage list. You will need the CDR 900 Interface Module for most new model year vehicles and systems going forward AND any new auto manufacturers added.

Why is the Bosch CDR 900 needed?
The Bosch CDR CANplus Module technology has been around for 17+ years with a hardware refresh occurring 12 years ago. Although the current CDR CANplus Module continues to be a reliable interface for retrieval of EDR data, new technologies such as CAN FD, DoIP, faster communication speeds and new PC interface technologies to name a few, cannot be supported with the current hardware. To continue with the rapid evolution of EDR data collection, Bosch is moving forward with a new vehicle communications interface to handle these new technological demands. All new vehicle manufacturers added to the Bosch CDR platform will be exclusive to the CDR 900 platform.

In the future, Bosch will merge legacy vehicle coverage to the CDR 900. The timeframe for that is undetermined due to the complexity of migrating legacy data to a new platform. In the meantime, the Bosch CDR Tool user will need to own both the Bosch CDR 900 and the Bosch CDR CANplus Module to access the complete vehicle coverage listed in the CDR Help File.

Do I still need the CDR 500 FlexRay Adapter?
Yes. The Bosch CDR 500 FlexRay adapter is an “adapter” and not a vehicle interface module. Therfore, it is still required for communications with FlexRay ACMs on certain vehicles as specified in the CDR Help File. It is used by both the CANplus Interface module and the CDR 900.

Is my existing CDR Tool Kit now obsolete?
No. The Bosch CDR 900 is an upgrade kit. It includes a new vehicle communications interface and cables  required for most new auto manufacturers added and new vehicle systems. You still need your current Bosch CDR Tool Kit to image legacy vehicles. Many of the vehicles currently listed in the Bosch CDR vehicle coverage list will still need to be imaged using the existing Bosch CDR CANplus interface module.

The CDR Help File will call-out which Vehicle Interface Module you will need for specific vehicles.

Will the existing D2M cables work with the CDR 900?
Yes. There is a Bosch CDR 900 legacy adapter available allowing you to use your existing D2M cables with the Bosch CDR 900. This adapter is included in the Bosch CDR 900 Upgrade Kit.

Will I need a new CDR software subscription?
To use your new Bosch CDR 900, you will need Bosch CDR Software version 17.8 or newer. The Bosch CDR software will support both the current Bosch CANplus CDR interface and the Bosch CDR 900. As long as you maintain your Bosch CDR Software subscription, you will automatically receive the Bosch CDR 900 functionality.
