Is that part of this Combox retrofit?
This is very good question!
Yes, we do plan to have data changed in the unit, however the VIN number change may be a tricky part. We expect to have first Combox Telematic (USA version) unit delivered at our lab on Tuesday - Wednesday next week for all our tests. More information is to follow.
In addition we plan to offer a service for all CIC owners - Software upgrade for your CIC unit
in order to have Combox + Internet available
In short, as you all know, in order to have Combox retrofit with proper Internet functionality (via your cell phone data plan) you will have to upgrade software level in your CIC to the latest one. This can be done ONLY by using special optical equipment. We will be happy to offer this service to all CIC owners across the globe. Especially this service may be very interested to all North American owners since shipping of your unit to Canada and back is safe and quick
