  • Manufacturer: Advanced Diagnostics


Smart Aerial by Advanced Diagnostics is used with the Smart Dongle to provide locksmiths with the ability to write pre-coding data onto various vehicle transponders. In particular, Smart Aerial is able to pre-code Fiat® and VAG® transponders from the electronic pre-coding stored in the vehicle and then write the pre-code data onto a blank transponder.

Main Features:

  • Transponder Pre-Coding: Simplify, streamline and reduce the overall time for programming keys by minimizing the use of additional pre-coding tools.
  • Automatic Configuration: Ready to use; automatically configures with Advanced Diagnostics Smart Dongle and
    programming Devices
  • Data Reading and Writing: Pre-coding data is seamlessly read and automatically written onto a blank transponder. Simply connect the Smart Aerial to a Smart Dongle that is used with an Advanced Diagnostics programming device, and insert the key into the dedicated key slot to begin the process.
  • Pre-code Fiat® and VAG®: Smart Aerial can pre-code data onto ID48 and ID46 transponders found within various automotive keys. The pincode reading software (ADS185 and ADS219) must be installed on the programming device before these  transponders.
