Is it possible to enable via the software that ALL windows are AUTO? Currently only the drivers window has the AUTO function, but I constantly find myself wishing that all windows have the AUTO as well.

So is this software pirated? Can it be disabled remotely? Between owning a Prius and RAV4, I guess I could benefit from this software.

That would require additional electronics and different switches. I highly doubt it could be done with software alone.

No, the driver's side window uses a more sophisticated motor that has an ECU controlling it for AUTO function and jam protection. The other 3 windows have a basic motor. Other Toyotas do have all AUTO windows, for example the Camry, and the Vanguard (LWB RAV4) in Japan.

It comes direct from China, where they tend to ignore copyright law, patents, and all that icky stuff. It cannot be disabled remotely.

If your conscience bothers you, the real deal can be ordered from Toyota for only $1345. This includes the cable, and a 1 year subscription to the TIS site. The Techstream software expires at the end of the year unless renewed:

Here's an interactive demo of Techstream and what it can do:

Mostly concerned about the software becoming useless if it depends on remote activation.

There are different versions on Ebay:v 7.20, v 7.10, ....
What's the big difference? Are they releasing a new version every few months?

I don't know, mine came with Techstream V7.20.041 even though the auction said it would be V7.11.010.

This is a fantastic tool for the price. The beeping seatbelt warning on my car drives me and my wife crazy. Thanks for the headsup guys, I've ordered it!
