I thought I might start a new thread dedicated to the the use of non-propietary hand-held tools for workshop and on-the-go use to look into or tweak your ECU.
I made a post in the Tuning with GuzziDiag thread about the Scan M5x suite of tools for Android: CLICKY.
I am finding this very useful when used in conjunction with GuzziDiag. Although it's possible to lug a small netbook around with GuzziDiag & Writer/Reader tools installed, for CO trimming, diagnostics and reflashing etc, this little app is fantastic and will do pretty much the same things (without the reflashing tools of course) and you can carry it in your pocket or monitor while riding. It's designed for the 59M and 5AM ECU, so is set up to work on Ducati's as well.
I am using a spare Samsung Galaxy Nexus I used before I had an iPhone forced upon me. I have searched for tools for iOS, but I haven't found one you can use wih the 5AM ECU. Other OBD2 compliant apps will connect to the 5AM, but can't communicate correctly. You can use any Android device of course.
The Scan M5x tools consist of the Monitor, Tests, Trimmer & DTC apps. You can use the Monitor app to, well, 'monitor' your engine. It displays RPM, Air Pressure, Air temp, Motor Temp, TPS, Ignition Advance, Volts and Injection duration. It's designed for the 59M and 5AM ECU, so is set up to work on Ducati's as well.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
With the Tests app, you can reset service and run various tests:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Unfortunately in French, but they are (in order): Rev-counter, Test Fuel Pump, Vertical Coil, Horizontal Coil, Injector 1, Injector 2, 59M Fan, 5AM Fan, Reset Service.
The Trimmer can be used to reset the TPS or adjust your CO trim. Here I was testing some tweaks to my FU2 map, and I needed to adjust my CO trim. I pulled over on the side of the road and did it on the spot:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Then when I got home, I tweaked it again in the garage:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The DTC app simply will pull codes from the ECU. You can clear codes as well. Not very exciting, but handy if your have an issue while away from home!
The tools are free. I am not connected to the developer in any way. I like these tools, so I though they would be of interest.
