Difference Between JLR Pathfinder and SDD software

Here, i’ll chip in words of “Goodbye JLR SDD and Hello Pathfinder”
What’s the difference between Pathfinder and SDD software?
1.The JLR Pathfinder software
(You must have a online account to work with it; obdii365.com won’t offer it)
It is the only unit that will be compatible with the Pathfinder software and all JLR vehicles with the new vehicle architectures found in 2017 and newer vehicles (from the Range Rover/Range Rover Sport L405/L494). In addition to the 2017 and newer vehicles, the JLR DoIP VCI will also be capable of interfacing with 2014 through 2016 Multi-CAN architecture vehicles (see application list below).
2.The SDD software
(If you want to do programming, you must have an online account)
All 2014-2017 with no DOIP and earlier (2006 to 2014) land rover and Jaguar will still use the JLR SDDsoftware.
Why we use JLR Pathfinder instead of SDD?
The reason for SDD being retired and Pathfinder being introduced is more because of the contract with Ford expiring, as the SDD is based on the Ford IDS, so JLR has to pay Ford to keep using it.
The major change to the cars themselves is the infotainment system, the Next Generation Infotainment (NGI) is an ethernet-based system, vs the older MOST fibre-optic infotainment i.e. the IAM2.1
So yeah, you could not (easily or economically) retrofit the NGI system into an IAM2.1 car, for example. The components and network are totally different.
But… the NGI has been in some JLR vehicles since 2016, and is supported by SDD. There will be a cutoff where new models are no longer supported by SDD and only by Pathfinder. But Pathfinder also works on older vehicles too, back to 2014MY (approximately).
What tool can be used with Pathfinder software?
The  JLR DoIP VCI interface! Both original and clone are okay.
JLR-doip-vci
It is the only unit that will be compatible with the Pathfinder Software and all JLR vehicles with the new vehicle architectures found in 2017 and newer vehicles (from the Range Rover/Range Rover Sport L405/L494). In addition to the 2017 and newer vehicles.
the DoIP VCI will also be capable of interfacing with 2014 through 2016 Multi-CAN architecture vehicles (see application list below). Vehicles 2014 and older vehicles not detailed here will continue to use the current diagnostic system and VCIs.
It’s tested by professionals.
