As most of you might have read, we can do the tuning remotely via our new programmer. No need to send in the ECU or crack open the case…not even the first time!
We make the car shift faster and smoother at the same time. Most customers are seeing a significant gain in HP & TQ.
The flashing process takes about 80 seconds to complete.
There is a full recovery mode built in to the programmer as well!
If you have a non Eurocharged Tune on the ECU, we can back it up if the ECU is sent in. You can then flash the ECU with your new EC tune or your other providers tune.
Do I need a PC to use the handheld:
The software only works on a mac if it can run windows as well.
You can also use any pc to set it up the first time. After that, no pc will be needed
Can I use this device if I have another vendors tune?
Yes but with a caveat. You would need to send your ECU to Eurocharged Toronto to be backed-up (to our file structure) to be read by the handheld. You could then switch between stock and tuned, but your tuner couldn’t write more files for the device.
Is the tune detectable by the dealer?
If the tune is left on the ECU then there is a chance the dealer could find it if they really wanted to. However, the handheld programmer will allow you to flash the car back to stock. Once this is done it is 100% undetectable as our programming doesn’t trigger a full write, so the flash counters don’t move!
How many tuning files can I keep on the device?
We supply you with 2 with your purchase, and you can purchase more if needed. Some of our bmw customers have over 10 files on the handheld at a time. The device can hold many tunes (more than needed). You use the supplied software and connect the device to your PC via a USB cable to manage the device. You can add / remove any tune you like. However, the stock software cannot be removed.
Can I use the handheld with more than one car?
No, the handheld is VIN-locked to the vehicle
How do I get a stock file for my car to go to the dealer with?
Generally you would read the stock file, send it to Eurocharged, we will modify it and send it back. However, the 63 ECU cannot be read via OBDII so the device will only ID the car. Once you have this ID file, you send it to us. We will then match your stock software based on the ID file, attach it to an email and send it on the way to you. From that point forward, you load all tunes via the same method.
To sum it up, the device will arrive blank. We will send all files via email for you to load / manage.
Is there a way to “unmarry” the unit from the car/vin/ECU, so it can be used by someone else?
yes, but you would need to send it into Eurocharged Toronto to get reprogrammed. There is a $200.00 fee (plus return shipping) for this service
Can I be re-tuned with the purchase of this device?
Yes, this just makes it easier as we can now just send you a file for you to flash as your convenience
Would it possible to have a tune for valet?? So they can’t go over 20km/h in our car.
Yes, that is not a problem
Also, will this programmer work on W211 E63, W212 E63, C219 CLS63, CLK63 BS or is it only designed for the C63 ?
This programmer also works with C300, all 350, all 550, all 63 N/A cars!
How long does it take to flash a tune?
Depends on the car but typically around 80 seconds
What happens if I unplug it when its writing? Will I destroy my ecu?
The programmer has a recovery mode that will fix any issues encountered during the flash. We pulled the programmer from the OBDII port on our CLK63 BS and the recovery mode fixed it without any issue.
How Many times Can I flash the car without damaging the ecu?
The memory inside the ECU can be programmed more times then you will be able to accomplish. In fact, the data inside the ECU changes every single time the vehicle is started.
Does this device work on non-US market C63 as well?
The programmer works on all 63’s, no matter the market.
