Sure, but not automatically. You will have to manually copy/paste the values into same TuneECU basetune as your TuneBoy basetune.

Early versions of TuneECU were able to directly open older TuneBoy tunes, but that feature was removed (I guess due to copyright issues).

I take it you'd need tuneboy to do that tho, in which case you wouldn't need to. Theres no way to open the TB map is there? I mean, tuneECU can't so you would you copy tables. Unless tuneECU has downloads of older versions that did open TB maps, but i assume due to copyright they probably don't offer downloads that low in version history.

A tune originally loaded in the ECM with TuneBoy can be saved from the ECM by TuneECU in TuneECU format.
Of course that requires someone with the same model bike that you wish to 'convert' and who has a TuneBoy license.

The TuneECU creator consciously changed the format to avoid any copyright issues with the TuneBoy creator and you will not find any approved sources for the original versions.
And the creators of both platforms I'm sure would prefer that they remain buried.

Yes, the program (that at least before used to be a free download), but not the cable that costs money.

I'm told elsewhere now that even with TB and cable/licence it doesn't work. It apparently did at one time, but 2 guys with TB just said they cannot read and save a TB map with tuneecu. It just gives them a error about unrecognized format.

It depends on the format of the TB map.
The new TB format (Live-format) can not be read with TuneECU.

Yes. But if you really, really want some tune for your bike, all you need to do is open tune in TuneBoy and manually copy the values to a TuneECU basetune.

All a tune is, is numbers in tables. If you can see numbers on TuneBoy, you can input same numbers to TuneECU.

I know, but that would not only be tedious but mistakes could easily be made, not to mention there may be obstacles due to differences in any number of ways that would make it hard to figure. It wouldn't be easy, but all that aside, no one is going to do that to help others with thier map, and theres no sense in buying tuneboy yourself then doing it. So really, thats not an option.
