Default OBDEleven tourist solution

Hi all. For various reasons Iíve given up with VCDS (new MBA with USBC and VCDS cables with limited VINs not sitting well with me)

Anyway. I just got myself an OBDEleven device and used it to scan, back up control modules etc. Iím quite impressed so far, using my iPhone is a lot more convenient than even an Apple MBA.

Has anyone used OBDEleven themselves? Iím thinking ahead for when Iíll be driving in Europe again (fingers crossed) and activating tourist solution at Eurotunnel.

Iíve only had a brief play earlier today, but was wondering if anyone had done so and could steer me int he right direction. Wanting to avoid credits and apps and that nonsense TBH.

All the best folks.

Yes I did it, don't remember exactly but it's the same as with VCDS as I was following the instructions for VCDS From memory you go to headlight range module, adaption, choose appropiate channel and change value from 0 to 1.

Cheers mate. Managed to figure it out later last night. Then got stuck with the car asking me to perform a basic setting. At least I know I can do it.
