FlashPro Bluetooth upgrade

Post by CivicRSA » Sat Apr 12, 2014 4:15 pm

Hondata announces the FlashPro Bluetooth upgrade program. Beginning April 28th older FlashPros without Bluetooth can now be upgraded for minimal cost. Check your FlashPro compatibility.

http://www.hondata.com/flashpro.html

How do I tell if my FlashPro supports Bluetooth?

From July 2013 some FlashPros shipped from Hondata including Bluetooth.

From Jan 1 2014, all FlashPros shipped from Hondata include Bluetooth.

FlashPros sold before the dates in the table below do not support Bluetooth. To confirm if your FlashPro supports Bluetooth follow this procedure:

Launch FlashPro Manager 1.8.1 or later
Plug in the FlashPro to your USB port.
Press the FlashPro button, tab, then hardware.
If Bluetooth is present, Yes will be indicated.
If you do not see 'Bluetooth present' at all, then you are using an older version of FlashProManager and need to update. This does not mean that you don't have a FlashPro with a Bluetooth radio.

FlashPro Model Sold after Date
06-11 Civic Si /Type R International 9/27/2013

Can I upgrade my older FlashPro for a Bluetooth enabled model?
Yes. For $150 + shipping (around 20% the cost of a new FlashPro), Hondata will upgrade your old FlashPro and give it a 1 year warranty. Download the upgrade form


Now guys we can do this in groups and save about R800 each on shipping.

Lets start a list to see who wants to do this

$150 converts into easily R1500. Is it really worth it to spend that amplount of money purely on bluetooth? Buyband obd2 blutooth controller for r300 and dl torque pro. R1200 saved. Done.

. Lol. Those bluetooth devices suck. This deal is so worth it. Hondata have just released their mobile app. We all know hondata and how they develop their software. Great things will come from this. Think changing maps and settings from your phone. Live e-tuning from any location. So much still to come.

Try not to think with a small mind.

Well as anything that Hondata does do is a bit pricey and not everybody can or wants to send that kind money, but I think that you are getting a lot of quality. Yes there might be other units or things to buy that could work too, but In the long run I think they are moving in the right direction with this...

Bottom line is that If an individual prefers or likes a certain unit or product its their call as to what they want to use...
Think of any performance parts...
Tegiwa Vs Viper
Injen Vs Skunk
The list can go on and on, but its what you decide to do to your car...

I've been a hondata dealer for 6 years. I was the first person in SA to have hondata Flashpro on my vehicle. I've followed the product and the company and i am constantly in communication with the decision makers at hondata. I recommend changes that we need and sometimes test betas before you even see them on their website.

Just imagine what is possible with the addition. Picture this.
You take your car to any dyno I sit in my office on my pc. You do a dyno run and your mobile sends me the data. You take a pic of the pc screen so I see the graph. I do adjustments send changes to your mobile and then they are transfered by the bluetooth Flashpro instantly. All in under a minute.

I'm not saying this will happen or when. I'm just say watch Hondata and see what's going to happen.

And R1500 is nothing. See how much a plx kiwi is.
