Remote Assisted Programming (RAP®) FAQ's:


RAP®2 was created to handle the added demands of the European vehicle market and to continue the expansion of RAP®. The major difference is that the RAP®2 has larger hard drives to handle the larger European OE applications as well as a 90–amp batter maintainer, which is required for most European vehicles. While the original RAP® kit will continue to work for only GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Kia and Nissan, the RAP®2 will be provided to provide the same, existing coverage and newly released Mercedes capabilities and more following. In addition, because of the kit improvements, the inactive fee for not using the RAP®2 kit at least 2x per month will be $49.95.
