Smile OpenFlash Tablet Update (Template and Tuning Alerts)

Hi guys,
The next time you update your OFT via WIFI and then connect to your car for datalogging, you will get a message asking you to "Update Template File." Do not panic You should still be able to do everything you were able to do before (flash ECU, monitor data, datalog, etc,.) You will just be missing a new icon button and the new Configure Tuning Alert function in the Diagnostic Selection Menu.

The new Template File was posted up on the website an hour ago. When you upload it to your OFT, you will see and get the new goodies. I'll be making a video later this week showing how to use the new Tuning Alert feature (it's a very powerful feature!). Until then, it's best you leave it alone or else you may find your OFT beeping and flashing its screen at you.

Cheers,
Shiv

We certainly enjoy doing things that haven't been done before. In this case, as a tuner, I've always wanted a user configurable alert system since I can't monitor everything on the fly while I'm driving. Something that would alert me if the engine where ever to run lean, boost to spike too high, knock excessively, etc,. And I've never been able to find any such system which I've always found to be very surprising! So we created one and integrated it into the OFT

I'm especially happy with how easy the Tuning Alert system is to use. It will basically allow even the most novice users to upload new tunes and have comfort knowing that the OFT will literally alert them (beep and/or flash the screen) if engine doesn't perform safely like it should!

Sounds great Shiv. The only thing I more I would love to have is map switching, which I had with Ecutek. Is there anything similar on the horizon?

Thanks and keep up the great work

Thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately, things like map switching involves very ECU specific work. In other words, the work involved in developing map switching for the GT86 wouldn't carry over to our other OFT platforms (Porsche, BMW, Mazda, etc.). And currently, our software developers are only developing features, like Tuning Alerts, that are cross-platform compatible. I'm still quite optimistic when it comes to open source development seeing what has been developed for the WRX/Evo platform.

But I'll continue to develop new and improved OTS tune files for the GT86 (as well as our other supported platforms)

Yep! We have been working on this new feature for the past several months. It turned out to be a much more difficult job than we originally anticipated. But it was something that I felt we had to do.

Cheers

@Shiv@Openflash I know you said you will be releasing a video this week, but we want answers nowww!!! :p

How many data streams can it monitor simultaneously and provide alerts for? For things like AFR, will it watch the load as well to know that it shouldnt beep for high afr while off throttle?

Awesome work BTW.

You can configure up to 3 different Tuning Alerts. And each Tuning Alert can have up to 4 conditionals that can be set as an OR or AND condition. For available channels, it will be a subset of the up-to-14 channels you configured for data logging/viewing. So if you wanted to create a lean run alert, you would do something like this in one of the 4 Tuning Alert menus:

Throttle > 70%
Engine Speed > 2000rpm
Engine Load > 1.0
AFR > 13.0

AND

With these settings, the alert would trigger if all of those conditions were met. The throttle and engine load conditions would keep the alert from triggering during lean spikes caused by lift throttle or traction control intervention. And the RPM condition would keep it from triggering at very low RPM where AFR can be a bit unstable. The AND setting makes sure that ALL of these conditions must be true for the alert to sound. If you used an OR setting, only one of these conditions would have to be true for the alert to sound.

You must be in the Realtime Data screen for the Tuning Alerts to work. You can be in any one of the 3 viewing options (14 channel, 3 channel or graphic). One the alert triggers, the OFT will beep and the flash the screen. After that the triggered channels will flash. To reset the channel flashing, simply press the RESET button.

To create a good Tuning Alert for low Advance Mult, you can simply set up a second Tuning Alert using just one single conditional.:

Advance Multiplier < 0.5

For a good Tuning Alert for overboost, overheat and knock, you can set up a 3rd conditional like this using an OR setting (so only one single condition needs to be true for the alert to trigger):

Boost > 10psi
Coolant Temp > 240
Knock Correction < -3.0
OR


Pretty awesome, huh?

Cheers,
shiv

Finally pulled the trigger on the OFT last month after months of research and lurking on these forums. As as newb to the tuning game, all I can say is thank you for the wealth of information and value you've provided. Updates such as these continue to reinforce the value of OFT.

If you ever find yourself in San Antonio, there's a bottle of your favorite adult beverage waiting for you.

I dunno! And yes, the OFT can be run on top of any other tuning solution (Ecutek, BRZ Edit, etc,.). Even if you don't use the OFT for tuning, this will give to you access to:

Realtime data displays
Digital gauge displays
On-board data logging
Code Reading/Clearing
and now Tuning Alerts!

Cheers,
Shiv
