Technical Support  only in Chat and only in english or french language.
Or at the new TuneECU forum, also in English or French only.

Support is only for the TuneECU Android- software, no advice or recommendation will be given
on the use of maps.


To get support, the following information are required:
  • A short description of the problem.
  • Android device & Android version
  • TuneECU version
  • License version
  • What connection is used, Bluetooth or cable ?
  • For Bluetooth problems: What a Bluetooth adapter is used? (Manufacturers and
    Firmware version)
  • For cable problems: Cable manufacturer or source of supply.
  • Which cable adapters are used (OTG etc.) manufacturer or source of supply.

1.Introduction:

TuneECU is a software for reprogramming, diagnosis and testing of engine control units (ECU),
which are built into some motorcycle models with Electronic Fuel 
injection.

Compatible models see "bikes list" by programmer
Important!! Also note the footnote in this list.

Suitable maps for reprogramming can be found
HERE
and
HERE
The maps or map folder must be stored in the "TuneECU" folder on the Android device for use with TuneECU.

Basics, NEW UPDATE august 2021


1.1  System requirements:

  •  Smartphone or Tablet Android version 4.0 minimum, dual Core 1.2 Ghz mini and OTG.
     RAM absolute minimum 1.5 GB RAM.
     You can test your phone or Tablet for OTG connectivity with the App "USB Host Test"
     and / or the App
    "OTG Troubleshooter" from Google Play Store.
    Note:
    The cheap phones or tablets with Android Go versions do not have enough memory to run TuneECU
    and no OTG support for using a USB cable.
    .
  • Cable USB OBD2 KKL FTDI (The cable is the same as the windows version)
    Info: FTDI chips which have been proven to work if the cable is of good quality:
    • Chip type: FT232R, Vendor ID: 0x0403, Product ID: 0x6001
    • Chip type: FT232 / 245BM, Vendor ID: 0x0403, Product ID: 0x6001
    • And from TuneBoy the USB cable with Chip Type: FT232R, Vendor ID: 0x0403, Product ID: 0xBF40
    • FTDI chips with Vendor ID 1027 also fit.
  • Adapter USB/micro (cable OTG) if needed.
  • Optional: Interface Bluetooth, but only those recommended by the developer..
    Attention: For the Triumph models, which can be reprogrammed via Bluetooth, special
    Bluetooth-
     adapters like the "OBDLink LX" or the "OBDLink MX" or MX+ have to be
    used, only these adapters allow the reprogramming of the compatible models (see Bike List).
    .
  • For the Walbro Benelli models, a special converter cable and AMP Super-Seal connector (6 pin)
    is still required, see here.
  • For Aprilia, KTM, Benelli, Husqvarna, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Gilera & Moto Morini ECUs,
    other components are required in addition to the OBD-2 cable and the OTG adapter, components
    checked with TuneECU are available from Lonelec.

WARNING: Avoid the cheap adapters on online platforms, there's a lot of bad chinese clones that don't
work or not properly with TuneECU and specific protocols use by bikes supported.

Some bluetooth adapters recommended, see the list below:
Devices tested:
  • Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, S10e & S10
    Devices with only 1 GB of RAM could cause problems. From 1.5 GB RAM, TuneECU runs reliably.
  • Acer A501 (not for Benelli Walboro ECU because insufficient power)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (8 & 10’’)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 (2018) WIFI Model
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7’’ (Bluetooth only)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note3
  • Sony Xperia Z
  • Asus me371
  • Medion LifeTab S7852

 

 This is not an exhaustive list.

Adapters Bluetooth tested

The following Bluetooth adapters are required for models that can be remapped via Bluetooth,
see Bikes List.
Other adapters are not suitable for remapping.

Only for diagnosis & maintenance (no reprogramming),
Both the above and the following adapters are suitable for
diagnosis & maintenanceSee Bikes List. Warning, only buy from trustworthy sources.
BAFX have posted warnings on their website about copies of their products.

     This is not an exhaustive list.


Note: We can not know all the devices on the market or future devices.
We can make a reliable statement only about the devices, that we have tested ourselves.
Of course, since we are private people, we can not constantly buy and test devices from all manufacturers.

References to other Android devices and Bluetooth adapter, which work with the Android version
of TuneECU, are gladly accepted in the TuneECU-forum.



1.2 Installation of TuneECU for Android:

TuneECU must be downloaded from the developer's official website only.
