The OSCA interface is used to establish a remote connection to the vehicle (OBD Socket), which means that the vehicle itself stays right where it is; in the workshop or at the side of road. The remote communication between the vehicle and the OSCA specialist takes place entirely via Wi-Fi or your 3G/4G network. As soon as the connection to the vehicle has been established, the OSCA app will open automatically.
