FlashPro Live Tuning !!!

Live tuning allows the real-time update of some tables in the ECU. This greatly speeds up the tuning process as minor changes take effect immediately, without waiting for a 90 second upload.

How Live Tuning works

Live tuning works by altering the ECU so that the ECU copies table information from flash memory (which cannot be changed without re-writing the whole ECU) to RAM (which can be changed quickly while the ECU is running). This copying process occurs every time the ECU RAM is cleared, which is every time the ECU is reset or the ignition is switched off and on. When tables are editing in FlashProManager, the changes are sent to the ECU where the RAM tables are updated, so that the ECU tables are updated in a fraction of a second.

I also took sometime and linked the 14 different YouTube videos on FlashPro for those interested in hearing more about the product.

To review again what FlashPro brings to the table for me :
