How about MS45?

MS45, MSS60, MSV70, MSV70-1, MSV80 etc, all use a completely different protocol and I'm certainly looking into adding support.

Good luck!

Would you be interested in an MSD80 tester? I've got a 535xi with that ECU. Also have an mss54 if you need another tester

MSS54 is covered, but I definitely appreciate the offer.

I should have added MSD80 to the list. I'm looking to add that as well! If I do need some testing I'll definitely let you know. From your other posts I know you have all the tools installed.

MS45 support is needed. I have MS45.0 and can help you with something. Will be very good to have an Android version for comfortable test runs.

Also why lambda values have %? Lambda must be from 0 to 1.

Yes, MS45 is planned, but has a different protocol.

That's Lambda Integrator 1 and 2, not Lambda readings from the sensors.

Thanks. It's available at www.bimmersoftware.com. There's a few guys already running around making good use of it.

So all I need to purchase along with the software is the blue cable you link on your website?

I have a macbook air with os x lion installed is there any special install instructions I need for the program? Or should it just install normally? Last question my friend has a window's 7 laptop does your software run on that as well? He was worried it might be XP only.

Thanks again can't wait to start using this!

Very usefull software! Definately worth it

Is it possible, for auto drivers, to add the signal from the EGS to reduce torque?

so it could be possible to see the interaction between engine and transmission and calculate shift response im very interested in that

Yes, all you need is a cable and a license. The cable I linked to I have several of and they work well.

There's a video on the product page that shows the basics including how to install. Drivers will be automatically installed for you. The product page says Mac OS X 10.4 And Up, Windows XP And Up, which includes Windows 7. Would it be easier to tell if I listed them all? Also the licenses work on Mac OS X or Windows, so you can switch between them at any time.

Right now we're gathering DME information only, but that's not to say we won't be able to reach out to other modules in the future. This will, however, slow the logging rate down.

It is actually in the DME, but it comes from the EGS. It advises the engine to reduce torque to help shifting

Send me a recording while doing what would activate this bit. If it's there I'll find it.

*Currently* for MS43 there's only lambda integrator 1 and 2, which can easily help you identify if you're running rich or lean throughout your logs. As you can see a few posts up I'm constantly adding additional items for logging.
