What Is DICE?
A vehicle communication tool that transfers data from a VIDA workstation to the correct receiver in the vehicle.
VIDA supports DiCE and J2534 devices. Volvo Car Corporation recommends DiCE for vehicle communication with D2 and GGD protocol-based vehicles.
DiCE uses a Bluetooth connection to transfer information between VIDA and the vehicle. A USB cable can be used as an alternative to the Bluetooth connection.
That no third party Bluetooth dongles can be used with DiCE, only Volvo Cars DiCE equipment can be used.
It is possible to connect more than one DiCE to VIDA and download software to as many as three vehicles in parallel and have one vehicle in the diagnostic workflow at the same time. One VIDA workstation with four DiCEs can thus handle four vehicles simultaneously.
For use with a VIDA Active Subscription.

Please Be Aware!
Pirated DiCE products are becoming increasingly common. These units are mostly available from aftermarket sources and websites. These units commonly cost between one half to two thirds the Volvo price, sometimes including an illegal version of VIDA. Technically, the units are of much less quality and they have been proven to introduce diagnostics and fault tracing issues, as well as new problems into the vehicle. All of which will result in repair delays and customer dissatisfaction.
Most importantly, Volvo will not provide support to customers using these units. Volvo can only support DiCE tools manufactured to our standards from Bosch or those based on J2534-2 certifications.
NOTEXC90 (16-) reference SMB 00-337. All older vehicles can still use DiCE or J2534.
