Default Predator PC Interface Kit

Is this really necessary?
Is there a proprietary user's license built into the USB cable, that unlocks the data from the website? (ala RossTech's VW VagCom)

OR ... can we use any USB 2.0 cable?

I got mine from Radio Shack. No problems what so ever with it.

It is necessary for downloading updates, retrieving backup copies of tunes stored on your computer (it's always good to back them up) and to be able to read any logs you take of engine operations.

That's what I like to hear ..

edit ..
I actually meant to ask if we HAVE to purchase the cable from DS.
For my son's VW R32 and Jetta VR6 I had to purchase an OBD ll cable from RossTech @ $150+ to unlock the data, updates and code info.
This is the one with built in license that can be read by the home site when you log in.
