EcuTek Bluetooth Vehicle Interface kit
ECU Connect & Bluetooth Vehicle Interface
High-speed Bluetooth connectivity for your mobile device
After years of development by EcuteK Technologies and much more anticipation…. we can finally release the details of the EcuteK Bluetooth Vehicle Interface kit.
EVI-BT puts the tuning platform at the cutting edge of technology, control, usability and portability thanks to the power of smart phones and tablets/ipads.
ECU Connect is a free app for the iPhone/iPad that integrates with EcuTek new Bluetooth vehicle interface to offer you advanced features and functionality.
This exciting new development will enable tuners and customers to interact with the ECU using their mobile device. ECU Connect will integrate with new RaceROM features to provide innovative features combined with power and control.
Newly updated RaceROM will integrate with ECU Connect to give the driver unparalleled control over exciting new features.
Read on to see all the great features in this new release.
EcuTeK Bluetooth vehicle Interface kit is used in conjunction with the ECU Connect app, downloadable from the app store for Iphone and Ipad mobile devices (android is coming soon)
ECU Connect App
ECU Connect is the free companion app to the new pocket-size Bluetooth Vehicle Interface launched by specialist tuning firm EcuTek Technologies.
The device connects to the OBD vehicle diagnostic socket of all vehicles supported by the company’s ProECU tuning product to allow communication between the engine management ECU and your iPhone or iPad.
ECU Connect Home screen
With it and ECU Connect you can retrieve information from the ECU, read and clear diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and observe, analyse and log all engine-running parameters in real time, so it’s an immensely powerful troubleshooting tool.
Email datalog to us
The app also records a log of data streamed from the engine so that you can email it to us, for instance, for our scrutiny should you have an engine-running problem.
Adjust launch control
Adjust Boost Control on each Map switch
Enable Valet mode
Each vehicle model has its own specific combination of engine-management possibilities and features, and one tuned with a ProECU Suite that includes RaceROM brings a host of additional functions for which ECU Connect can be particularly useful.
RaceROM adds ECU maps whose input, output and purpose can be determined by the tuner or vehicle owner to achieve such extra functions such as switching between different engine tunes, running on Flex-Fuel, controlling turbocharger boost, adjusting launch- and traction-control characteristics… and much more.
Switching between maps and making adjustments ‘on the fly’ will be easier and more practical when done cable-free on your handheld Apple device.
Data can be shared on email or social media
ECM & TCM Tools
ECU Connect can also be used to control a car’s ‘factory tools’ if it has these. One example is the Nissan GT-R whose factory tools allow transmission control system adjustments, tyre pressure monitoring system calibration (which requires a TPMS reset tool) , clutch touch-points and pressure adjustments and idle learning, among other things.
Don’t confuse EcuTek ECU Connect with other Bluetooth diagnostic devices and apps already on the market as these are mainly intended for reading DTCs, and the few that can also provide data-logging do not have the capabilities or speed of Ecutek’s Bluetooth Vehicle Interface, which is the company’s own in-house development from the ground up.
ECU Connect can only be used in conjunction with the EcuTek Bluetooth interface, which is key to its high-speed operation; it will not work with any other.
EcuTek ProECU – and therefore ECU Connect – supports a number of different vehicles from Infiniti, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Scion, Subaru and Toyota, and most recently has also added support for Honda’s 2.0-litre VTEC-engined Civic, while ongoing development will be adding more makes and models in due course.
