Looks great! I like the option to be able to do this in our own garage/driveway.

Also very interested in options available out there. Been looking into JB4 and this seems to compliment it nicely. There's just a lot to take in and in not as technologically advance as some of you guys. Lol.

We are working with Terry this week (and next) to optimize the 'back-end' flash for the JB4. It's much more convenient to data log & test out tunes now the flash thru OBD2 is fully functional

Will provide an update once things are finalized.

does it still require the initial bench flash to unlock OBD?
Or can u do OBD tuning without removal of ECU

Yes. The ECU needs to be bench flashed at least once in order to unlock the OBD tuning.

Hope we can get maps for E85 mixes since our gas is so crappy in California

Do you think you'd have any problem flashing an UK/EURO spec B48 DME?

I'd also like to see some real results/improvements with the JB4 if you have any.

Does your software give the user the ability to read and save the stock ecu software before flashing? If we want to flash back to 100% true stock software do we have that ability?

to add to that question, is the MAP a proprietary MAP? i don't mean sharing among vin's, i mean if someone were to get their own tune, could the OBD module be used to upload the file or is the start/end process a BT proprietary system.

Your ECU needs to be boot-mode on the bench in order to enable OBD2 flashing. So we will have your stock rom. To return it to OEM stock, there are a couple of methods: 1) Send the ECU back to us for a return to stock bench flash; 2) Use a factory type tool to flash the OEM map back into your ecu (can be done with BMW tool).

We are working with our Euro partners to test on their shop cars. Results to follow. JB4 results are not yet available b/c we are still testing with BMS.

Maps are proprietary.
