    Using bluetooth or USB , never been able to get a read when using bluetooth and if I use USB with the laptop on battery power it corrupts everytime leaving the car stranded.

    just been having another play with RR bluetooth (still a pain to connect sometimes, but I think thats software issues) by accident I worked out that I need to turn on emulation before trying to do a read of RR. Seems to work sucessfully every time if I do this, if emulation is not on I get the "badBinFile" error message & the car will not start.

    I'll send a message to Paul to get him to check the Bluetooth. I'm not sure if he uses one though.

    Cheers,

    Guess you better pay him a visit through the week , though, I think Robin at Torque Performance has one too Paul could borrow.

    These are the three main errors that I recieve:
    1:/ can't set vendor to 1 - usually get this when trying to connect to RR
    2:/ Bad bin file format - get this if I download tune from RR after connecting/ car will also not start after this unless you load a tune from file into Flashscan and do a full write back to RR
    3:/ operating system not compatible - This usually happens also after the Bad bin file read if you load a tune from file to flashscan and try to do a calibration only write, this requires you to do a full write to the RR otherwise car disabled (looking at the error message gives me the impression that the ram in RR is erased or something similar)
    Here are some screenshots of those errors + the save Badbinfile.tun.

    It's taken me a while to get back around to it, but I finally had the chance to do a side by side USB vs BT.

    USB is fast! Bluetooth - I still don't know. I think there is still some tweaking on the BT end I need to do before it will properly connect. As it stands, using BT, I can connect, via radio button in the RR control panel, to the RR, but can't do anything beyond that. Free time is still a bit scarce, but I will post up my results when I get them.

    BTW, the RR is bad ass! I'm so very glad I didn't go with the tinkertoy alternatives

    I think I need to get this Bluetooth thing just so I know how it works...
