Problems with the driver installation (Windows only) ?
For example, Windows reports: can not find driver software for this device
Please read this post:

  3 - Download any/all related maps for your bike and save them in the TuneECU folder,
        if necessary, unzip them first (zip)

  4 - Open map and connect to bike (Turn the key to the ON position and the ignition kill switch to the RUN
        position, but do not start the engine.).

  5 - Under ECU at top, select Read Map (
only possible with cable connection).
        This will upload the map from the ECU to TuneECU.

  6 - Save the original map with a new name. Preferably in a new file for your future maps.        

  7 - Open map file you want to load to bike's ECU.

  8 - Download map to ECU.

  • Should you have issues connecting to the ECU, make sure your battery is fully charged FIRST.
  • Then make sure key switch is ON and kill switch is ON.
  • Check if the correct ECU type has been selected (only required in the Android version of TuneECU)
  • Occasionally it happens that the download fails, although was kept strictly to the instructions.
  • It turns out that it comes to these interruptions, when the battery voltage falls below 12,5 volts,
  • even when connected battery charger.
  • Apparently, the power delivered to the modern battery chargers not prevent that.
  • It works perfectly when a second 12-volt car battery is connected.

YES - The TuneBoy USB cable will work with TuneECU.

YES - The serial TuneBoy-cable can also be used with TuneECU, but is a USB-Serial-Adapter necessary,
has a FTDI-chip-set. Good example is here the Digitus DA-70156 USB-Serial-Adapter.
YES -  
The ELM 327 (Bluetooth) also works with TuneECU, but only with TuneECU for Android.

Restriction: reading the map from the ECU is not possible with a Bluetooth connection.
Reprogramming the ECU is only possible with a Bluetooth connection for those models that are
specially marked in the bike list.
And only possible with special Bluetooth adapters, such as the
OBDLink LX or the OBDLink MX.


Restriction for the USB-TuneBoy-Cable:
The USB-TuneBoy cable works only with the ancient FTDI driver from TuneBoy's own site.
The hardware id of TuneBoy cable is different vs. a generic/TuneECU FTDI cable.
So even though both cables have same chip, TuneBoy cable needs the matching driver.
For  WIN8/8.1 unfortunately, the tuneboy driver is to install only with a trick. See here.
The problem is the enforced driver signing in Windows8 & Windows 8.1.

NO   - The TuneECU cable will not work with TuneBoy/TuneEdit
