    Hi,
    Is there anyone around the Orlando,FL. area with knowledge of the Tune Ecu staff?
    I have the cable,but no computer skills to do it on my own.
    Bike is a 2007 ADV with a 2:1 Akro on it with stock airbox.
    Runs really nice,but mileage is down to the low 30's.
    Thanks in advance.

    I'll be spending most of January in Florida. Leaving for Daytona on 1/2. Be there and Sebring. If there is room on the transport I'll bring my bike out. Can't ride it here in January:vardy.

    Post your computer questions here. I'm sure I or someone else will be able to help.

    Are you using a laptop running Windows?

    two trackin - I am really not an expert on using tune ECU - but I did manage to stumble through it last year and did eventually figure it out. If you have the android version and appropriate cable to connect your phone to the bike, just go with that. If the cable you have is instead one to connect to computer, then download the tune ecu program here: http://www.tuneecu.com/TuneECU_En/index.html

    From there you have the dizzying array of tunes to download from that site, or else from the many developed by other inmates (search for that massive Tune Ecu thread).

    Once you figure it out, it really is not that hard - so be patient as you learn!

    I actually have both . I have used the phone version for codes and did a reset which really helped at the time and is really all I need at this time but I have some down time & I was hoping to play with the lap top (not connected to the bike) a bit for future reference . Unless it is only used to change the map I'm not ready for the whole map change thing but do plan to do some more upgrades . I can't seem to find the thread . I was following it for reference but it seems to be missing . I'm working on the 830 some pages looing for it .

    Thanks for the link ! The drivers and program are what I'm in need of .

    It is rather fun comparing different maps and trying to sort out the differences and what impact they might have on performance. Be warned though...you're gonna want to try some new maps!
