I plugged mine into the UCON itself, gave me launch control.. other then that idk either haha
I would say it can be used for a number of different things. Launch control, secondary map, test tune before you burn it to the UCON.
I'm sure G will chime in with all the answers.
The UCON is delivered to you with the calibration file pre-installed.
You do not have to do anything with the USB stick.
I do load the eTune and calibration file installers on the USB stick if you wish to install them on your Windows PC.
Most of the time I will also load a TEMP file on the USB stick that has Launch control activated. If you see a file on the USB stick that starts with TEMP. and LC in it, that is will turn on launch control if you insert the USB stick into the USB port on the communications cable that is plugged into the UCON.
You can have as many custom calibrations as you want and instantly load them by placing it on the USB stick and plugging it into the UCON. The file must be prefixed with TEMP. for it to load and you can have only one TEMP file in the root directory. Once inserted the file will load and become active and it will stay active until you remove it and restart the engine.
This is useful for turning on launch control or engaging Valet mode.
In the next firmware release we hope to have two more USB functions activated. One will be to datalog simply by plugging the USB stick into the port and the other to flash a new base calibration into the UCON. We are aiming to be able to do many things using the USB stick so you will never have to plug your PC into the UCON.
USB sticks configured for the X-1 will not work in the UCON and the UCON sticks will not work in the X-1 so do not try.
Typically how long must one drive around with the ucon to feel its total improvement? Will it learn or is it suppose to be instant? Just installed mine. Very good instructions.
Do you have one on order from URD?
If so better contact me. I think we are all caught up with the back log again except for the orders we got in the last few days.
I was referring to all the mods I planned to put in in two days. Urd fuel pump, nst mani spacer, new plugs, ucon and a few Lil nick nacks. Assuming all goes well and I don't run into any issues.
Yea if u take ur time and follow all the instructions you shouldn't hit anything major.. (in 13 hours I did the UCON, cam gears, thermostat, injectors, clutch flywheel and new transmission,fuel pump/filter, traction bar, and my short shifter. I ran into no real problems. G's instructions are on point.) And I didn't have any special tools, juat my basic tool kit.
