Treat yourself with a new Renault TrueCode Module from 3D Group
"Our friends over at KeyProgrammers have just launched a new software update for their TrueCode system", says 3 D Group.
TrueCode is a PC-based software system that can be installed onto any netbook or laptop and connected to the vehicle using the diagnostic cable that is supplied with it. It allows you to program keys and key cards to the vehicle quickly and easily without the need for internet access.
This makes it convenient for the mobile auto locksmith and also cost effective. The TrueCode programming system is a one-off initial payment with no pay per use token system. You simply purchase the add-on software modules for various vehicles as and when you require them.
KeyProgrammers are constantly increasing the software modules available, and their recent offering is the RTC4 (RS4) software. RTC4 (RS4) is predominantly for use with Renault vehicles, specifically the Kangoo II (2008-present), Master III (2010-present) and the Clio III with card key system (2005-2012), however it will also work with the Vauxhall Movano and Nissan NV400.
The RTC4 (RS4) software will automatically and quickly determine the PIN code for these vehicles and allow you to program the keys or cards to the vehicle.
The Renault Kangoo II (pictured) and the Renault Master III are very popular fleet vehicles so the demand for work on these vehicles is quite high. This means the software could pay for itself in just a couple of jobs.
Thankfully this software also programs the card key system for the Renault Clio III. This is the hands-free card that looks similar to the Megane II and Scenic II card key but the security system used within it is completely different. KeyProgrammers believe that there is currently no other software available that works as accurately on the Clio III card key.
Originally this software was not planned for release until later in 2014, however KeyProgrammers have completed their extensive testing earlier than expected and have brought the launch date forward. 3D Group think that it is an excellent piece of kit and one that is well worth the investment, so why not treat yourself this Christmas and purchase the TrueCode system with RTC4.
