Wow. That really is steep then.On 2007-01-15 09:27, martinyoung wrote:
It's not "just" a serial cable.
The current version uses a USB to OBD2 cable with a special something in the middle. You could always make your own. Ho ho.
You also need a software licence key, which alone costs Â£99. The licence key is ECU specific so you can't use someone else's.
If you want to use a product that someone has put time and effort into to develop, you should pay for it.
The price seems restrictivley dear if we're looking at Â£220 for the hardware (bear in mind you can pick up whole new PC's for Â£300) and Â£99 for the software. Â£100 for hardware and Â£50 for software would have seen me pick up the package without blinking, just for the fun of being able to remap and tinker, whereas at over Â£300, I'm obviously going to have a look around for alternatives.
If I end up having to pick up the package at full price, it'll mean that the underseat system has cost me well over a grand, which in hindsight would have stopped me buying it I recon.
I guess I've just got to pray that the triumph mapping works OK!!
