I'm glad to hear the options can be changed after uploading the tune. I would like to turn mds on/off depending if I'm on a long trip or not, same with esp. Waiting 20mins for tune to load would be horrible.

Just bricked mine...the tuner failed to back up my original tune twice then started writing a new tune...and failed at that. Now I have no tune saved and no tune on my car. It is just a heavy paper weight...FML

That really did suck it has to be that the machine didn't update right.

Now when I plug the tool into my laptop it still thinks it is connected to car, cant even do anything with it. Hope they can get me running in the morning without having to send anything in to them. STRESSED

This is why I am going to fight the urge to buy this on the first release. I have read so many horror stories from all years of these. There are so many bugs in these things and a good percentage of people are bricking their cars.

I can't afford to brick mine since this is the only car I have. I will closely follow this though to see if they resolve it. Just amazing how a company can rush a product out with so many work arounds needed. Scary.

It's very important to have the car doors closed and all accessories off. It isn't that your battery will die, it's all about clean power. Having a door open/close or a radio, fan or some power drain buzz the bus is not a good thing while writing.

That is the point I was trying to make in my earlier post. With both my 11 and 12 Mustangs and the SCT tuner, guys were freezing pcms because of accessories being on, doors open with chimes going and ac on to keep them cool while loading the tune. The other thing that most do not realize is that it is important to diable all virus software when downloading the updates or custom tunes. The virus software will on occasion mess with the programs.

There are growing pains with any new software release and I just hope when I get a new update that it is not me, as it is no fun with a frozen pcu. IMO, you take a certain amount of risk anytime you modify a stock car that is under warranty for more performance.
