Tune ECU ..Thunderbird problems

Managed to get my hands on the cable and installation was perfect..
Connected cable and the Tune ECU found the ECU number with no problems.
Map is named 20360 (which was the Triumph tune that we started with before modifying with Tuneboy.
Went across the top bar to ECU..then…Read Map…then … comes up with a box that states Map 20360 installed …hit read….comes up with a smaller box that states Unknow (Without the n on the end) Map Type.
Shut it all down and tried again and the same results appeared .
Looks like Tune ECU will not read maps that are fitted if they have been modified by Tuneboy.
Can the tune be changed to a hex file somehow??
Hope you may be able to assist with the next step.

Hi Steve,

This is correct and there is no way this dat-file in hex ​​convert.

The last versions Tuneboy/TuneEdit change the checksum of the map, so it can TuneECU not read this map.
