    Default What do I do with the text file I received from my tuner?

    Hi,
    I receive remote tunes from a gentleman on the east coast and he emailed me a text file that has something to do with the latest updates.
    I don't know what exactly to do with that file, so it's just sitting in a folder on my desktop.

    I have a 2005 Corvette A4.
    And tuning via Autocal.

    I have downloaded and installed all of the latest EFI Live software versions (june 21, 2014) and have updated my Autocal device as well.

    I tried to record a data log yesterday and it doesn't seem to be recording...? I recorded a 40+ minute ride and when I pull it up in the EFI Live Explorer it says the file is only 2kb. That doesn't seem right.

    I think it may have something to do with this text file my tuner sent me.
    Either that or I am not saving the data log to my device properly.

    Any and all insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    ~Troy~

    1. Start one thread, not 4.....
    2. Call your tuner and ask him what the go is. Have you opened it to see what is in there?


    The 2Kb log file sounds like it only wrote the header info, as if you hit the cancel button accidentally after starting the log. Was there any data displaying on the screen while the log was being recorded? The only other option I can think of is that the Autocal/V2 may need to have the firmware updated, which may be what the text file is about.

    He probably changed the extension so he can email it to you. Take out the .txt extension
