No Motobike Manufactor have had involvement in this product.
The use of a manufactures name and / or model designation to describe
the motorcycles on this site does not imply that the manufacturer endorses
the use of this application.

Support is only for the software (Android vers. only), no advice or recommendation
will be given on the use of maps. 
Except the brief descriptions available on the site,
no additional information will be provided on the maps, for any additional questions,  please ask in the appropriate forums.

No support when it comes to questions such as:
  • Is my bike compatible and which functions are supported?
  • which cable do I have to use and where can I get it
  • Which Bluetooth adapter do I have to use, etc., questions that everyone can answer
    for themselves if they only deal a little with the instructions and the software itself.

Glossary of Terms


Air temperature
The air temperature in the air box and intake system.

Air temperature sensor
Sensor located in the airbox to detect the temperature of the incoming air.

After Top Dead Centre.

Barometric pressure
Pressure of the air in the airbox. See MAP for difference.

Battery voltage
The voltage at the input to the Electronic Control Module (ECM).

Before Top Dead Centre (TDC).

Controller Area Network (CAN Protocol is a method of communication between various electronic devices.

Calculated load
The actual volume of air per stroke flowing into the engine, expressed as a percentage of maximum
volume that can enter. Provides an indication of the percent engine capacity that is being used
(100 % = full throttle).

Device placed in the exhaust system which reduces exhaust emissions by stimulating secondary
combustion of the exhaust gases.

ruise Control

Closed loop = lambda 1 = AFR 14,7:1 is the target value.

CTP Closed throttle position
Throttle position at idle (i.e. against end stop), measured as a voltage and expressed as percentage.

Coolant temperature
The coolant temperature in the cylinder head.

Coolant temperature sensor
Sensor which detects coolant temperature.

Cooling fan status
The ‘on or ‘off’ condition of the cooling fan.

Diagnostic Trouble Code.

Sending a revised map or data from the PC to the bike.   See also READ

Engine/Electronic Control Module/Unit

Engine speed
The crankshaft revolutions per minute.

ETV = Electronic Throttle Valve:
The ETV tables are only tables for the gear ratio of the throttle grip to the stepper motor that moves
the throttle valves (0-100%).

These tables are for the different driving modes (e.g. Rain, Tour and Race) for the ETV models e.g.
from Triumph, there are further tables for each selected driving mode, which operate depending on
the gear selected.

For the following description, the map of a Triumph Street Triple 765 was used as an example.
Stepper value 0 
in the ETV table = throttle valves closed.
Stepper value 1680
in the ETV table = throttle valves fully open (100%)
The stepper motor on this model has 1680 steps as a step to open the throttle valves 100%.
Means: 100/1680 = 0.058 ... - The stepper motor can vary the throttle position to approximately 0.06% accurate.

Special features regarding the ETV table-names of the Aprilia Shiver, Dorsoduro
and Caponord 1200 models

  • Map T = ETV-table mode touring
  • Map S = ETV-table mode sport 
  • Map R = ETV-table mode rain

EXBV - Exhaust Butterfly Valve

Freeze frame
A data set captured at the time a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) is set.

F1 - F4 tables (main injection tables)
The values for Sagem maps, shown there are the assumed, sucked-in air mass in mg.
For Keihin maps, shown there are the assumed, sucked-in air mass in mg x 20.
The number behind (1 to 4) indicates which table applies to which cylinder.
E.g. F1 for the 1st cyl.

For KTM 690 models: here F3 to F1 stand for different mappings (modes) between which the driver
can choose using the switch.

  • F3 = for standard
  • F2 = for performance
  • F1 = for soft

For Benelli models TnT Sport, TnT CR, TreK1130, TnT Standard (05/06) and TNT R160.
And for the models TnT Sport, TnT CR, TreK1130 and TnT Standard (05/06), Map1 is the map for reduced
fuel consumption = reduced performance and Map0 for open performance and max torque.

For the TNT R160, Map1 is the map for operation WITH DB Killer and Map0 is the map for operation
WITHOUT DB Killer, Map0 is significantly richer and not suitable for operation with DB Killer.

F-L table (F-L switch)
The F-L table (F-L switch) defines when the table "F" is switched to "L" and vice versa.
The changeover is a) dependent on the engine RPM (1/min.) and b) on the throttle opening in percent (%).
There are 3 areas:
a) Map sensor area, only the L tables are used here.
b) Transition area, that is the transition from L to F table and vice versa.
c) TPS area, only the F tables are used here.

Idle Air Control Valve/System (IACV)
Stepper motor air valve controls amount of air to throttle inlet, to maintain idle or warm-up mixture
when throttles are fully closed. System not used on latter bikes.

Idle fuel trimThe percentage above or below the nominal fuel requirement for the volume of air entering at idle.

Idle fueling
Adjustment of fueling at idle to suit the actual air inducted.

Idle reference speed
The target idle speed as determined by the Electronic Control Module (ECM). (It should be the same
as the actual idle speed if the motorcycle is operating correctly.)

Ignition advance
The timing of ignition at the spark plug relative to top dead centre.

Ignition switch position
The ‘on’ or ‘off’ position of either or both the ignition switch and the engine stop switch.

Ignition timing
Same as ‘ignition advance’.

ISCV - Idle Stepper Control Valve

I tables (ignition timing tables)
In the I-tables (ignition timing tables) displayed  values are the advance ignition in degrees (°)
before TDC (top dead center). The higher the value, the more advance ignition.

Special features regarding the ignition-table-names of the Aprilia Shiver, Dorsoduro
and Caponord 1200 models

  • I (T & S) = Ignition table mode Touring and Sport
  • I (R)        = Ignition table mode Rain.

Injector pulse time
The time during which an injector remains open (i.e. delivering fuel).

Long term fuel trim
Fueling after adapting to the engine’s long term fueling requirements (closed loop only).
See also short term fuel trim.

MAP - Manifold Air Pressure

MAP sensor
Manifold absolute pressure (the air pressure in the intake system). Measured after the throttle
valves this reading is compared to the pressure reading in the air box (barometric pressure)
to allow the ECM to calculate engine load,

On Keihin bikes (eg 675), the value can be used to adjust throttle body sync as there is one sensor
for each intake. Earlier Sagem'd bikes (eg 595,955) do not have individual intake sensors and require
external device (eg Carbtune) to measure each intake.

Malfunction Indicator Lamp. Illuminates when most Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) are set.

Neutral switch status
The 'neutral' or 'in gear' status of the gearchange.

Off idle fuel trim
The percentage above or below the nominal fuel requirement for the volume of air entering
at engine speeds other than idle. This function is not currently used in the Triumph system.

Open circuit
A break in an electrical circuit - current cannot flow.

Over temp
High temperature within the Electronic Control Module (ECM) caused by an internal or external failure.

Primary Throttle Position Sensor
Sensor for the primary (lower) throttle position.

Primary Throttle Stepper Motor (see also IACV)
Stepper motor used to vary throttle opening at idle and when the engine is cold. (latter bikes only)

Purge valve duty cycle
The time the purge valve is open in an open / close cycle, expressed as a percentage of the cycle time.

READ (tune)
Reading a tune or data FROM bike to PC. Bike ==> PC

Road Speed Sensor
Gearbox mounted sensor which delivers information to the ECM that is converted
to the road speed value that is displayed on the speedometer.

Sensor reference voltage
Supply voltage to the system sensors (nominally 5 volts).

Short Circuit
A 'short cut' in an electrical circuit - current by-passes the intended circuit (usually to earth).

Short term fuel trim
A correction applied to the fuel mixture during closed loop catalyst operation. This, in turn has an effect
on the long term fuel trim in that, if an engine constantly requires mixture correction, the long term fuel trim
will adapt to this requirement thus reducing the need for constant short term adjustment.

Sidestand status
The 'up' or 'down' position of the side stand.

Target dwell time
The actual time from coil 'on' to coil 'off'.

TC - Traction Control

TTC - Triumph Traction Control 

Throttle position (TP)
The position of the throttle butterfly given as a percentage of the movement range. When the data
is displayed on the tool, fully open need not be 100% nor fully closed 0%. Read by the TPS (sensor).

Throttle voltage
Voltage at the throttle potentiometer.

Battery voltage.

VIN - Vehicle Identification Number
