In this case, we are doing everything "in-house" so to speak. So the price may be slightly higher. Going through all the different rom types and creating definition files for each of them is, by far, the most time consuming part of this project. But it should still be very reasonable

If it does what the bmw one does I don't care if it costs twice as much lol.

You say this is suitable for beginners and advanced users alike. I have a technical background but technology is not what it used to be and I would really appreciate it if you could explain how we tune with this?
Could you take one application, say mixture and show how we tune to get the correct levels.
I read a post yesterday but can't find it again, where the guy was explaining how the mixture tables kept changing and what he had to do to stop that happening. Will that be an issue with this?

Interested, particularly in utilizing separate boost partitions for different conditions

he way i understand it from reading on the bimmer forums, this thing just basically holds the roms and reads/flashes them, along with all of its' gauge/obd2 functionality. once you pull the rom with the device, you edit it using tunerpro , then use the device to flash it back to the ecu.

So, what formats will you be using to define the maps? Tuner pro only or ecuflash xml, rom raider xml etc etc?

IMO, the Success of this product is going to depend on how complete your definitions are and how accurately you define the functions of the 1000's of maps in this ecu... there are over 500 2D unit16 based maps alone.

Also, you really need to get data logging working to compete with BRZedit. I know the $400 version of BRZedit does not include the OP2 cable, but those are 160 brand new these days and they can be picked up used for a lot less than that.

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

Yeah, it sounds like this is cobb AP type device for the "opensource" rom editors (tuner pro, ecuflash, romraider), but with a larger color lcd.

Never bad to have more tuning options, especially handheld tuners.

Success will depend on the tuner community embracing it however, and the inability to lock maps may be a turn off.

Hello,
On the road so I'll make this fast . Rom tables will be defined in .xdf (tuner pro standard). We expect to have all useful tables defined and accessible to all users. New tables can be defined as well, by anyone, as they are discovered. Real-time on-screen data displays and data-logging will also be functional. We have asked Vishnu Tuning to provide base maps for a variety of configurations. They will be viewable by all and can be modified as users/other tuners see fit. We just sent our Toyota to them for tuning work and I believe they will be offering custom in-house dyno tuning for those who want it. Other tuners are also welcome to develop their own maps and resell the Tablet. Light just turned green.. Got to go!
