SMART Aerial

Smart Aerial from Advanced Diagnostics has been developed to be used with Smart Dongle providing locksmiths with the ability to write pre-coding data onto various transponders found within vehicle keys. 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. 

Smart transponder pre-coding

Smart Aerial is designed to simplify, streamline and reduce the overall time spent programming keys for your customers, enabling you to work smarter by minimizing the use of additional pre-coding tools. 

Pre-coding data reading and writing

When connected to Smart Dongle and used with a programming device, Smart Aerial becomes a powerful asset for the locksmith. Pre-coding data are read seamlessly in the background and then written automatically onto the blank transponder.

Automatic procedure for preventing mistakes

The entire pre-coding procedure runs automatically to avoid mistakes linked to the manual input of data. You will just have to connect Smart Aerial to Smart Dongle and place the key in the dedicated slot.

Lightweight and portable

Smart Aerial has been designed with practicality in mind. It is easily transportable and will save space in your tool kit.
