free
Android or windows

Where can I download the windows version?
Would it work with opcom+windows ?
Do you plan to improve it to add more functionalities?

Would a USB ELS27 or GM-MDI or VXDIAG work?

Is it only possible to unlock features in the instrument cluster ?

What about enabling disabled features in the HMI.

For example....Enable reverse camera input, when reversing. (I could fit the camera myself without having to pay vauxhall an extortionate amount of money for it :) )

Another example ... Enable the function to make heated seats work automatically when it is cold outside, just like the rear windscreen does (This function is avaliable with winterpack 2, but an aussie guy in here said his holden (Same car, different brand) had this feature even though he did not have heated rear seats, so it is possible, if the menu item was not hidden)

Maybe with this tool it will even be possible to retrofit a instrument cluster taken from a (scrapped) car that has color display instrument cluster, and retrofitting it to a car that only has monochromatic from the factory :)
