My guess is AA's tuned file can only be read and flashed with this device and you cannot use a 3rd party device to do the flashing. So when you sell your car you can either give the device to the new owner or hang it up on your wall as a conversation piece.
Actually we do not have a reset code for them.

And to clear that confusion up the vin does not lock until a file is actually uploaded not just read.
