    Hi,

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but somehow is it possible to check the current version of the PGM-FI / PCM , CVT and other modules on the car?
    I tried the HDS, but I couldn't find any place that tells me this information.

    I would like to check if a dealer really change or updates the modules on the planned maintenance.

    I'm Using a Desno DST-i to scan the car.

    If you plug in the MVCI, and check for possible updates, than it will tell you if your car needs any updates. So you're 100% sure you got all the latest stuff on it.

    The latest updates were distributed to Honda dealers at the beginning of the month. They must be downloaded to the DST-I in order to ensure the latest updates are compared with the vehicles software. If the DST-I has the genuine Honda hardware and software there is a menu from start up to select software updates and interrogate the vehicles subsystems. I wasn't aware that these software update discs were available outside of Honda. ?

    Hi Guys,

    I got my unit from USA and Japan, Incredibly both are different.
    I'll try to post photos later.

    I got a subscription for the USA site. The HDS Software is international, I could install to use to LAC (Latin America) and scan and works fine.
    I'm not sure about the updates, since it's american and I didn't tried to transfer the files to the DST-I

    The japanese unit was cheaper then the american.

    However I'm with this doubt, how can I check the software (PGM-FI and other modules) version that are on my car?

    Example:
    Can I check somewhere a number line Version 1.09.... and so?

    I'm asking this because I would like to check for a recall that says that updates the PGM-FI and I'm almost sure that the dealer didn't.
