OK, so you shelled out 800 bones for EFILive and you loaded the tunes. Now your ready to put the V2 on the shelf, sit back and enjoy. WRONG! You can do all kinds of cool stuff with it. You wanna learn to tune yourself? No better way than data logging, but who wants to have the laptop sitting on the front seat? Need to flash a tune but forgot the computer at home? That's where the Black Box functions come in handy. Run down to Wally Martinez and grab yourself a 2gb SD card(dont get anything larger than 2gb). When you get home follow the directions in this link.
Updating and setting up the Flashscan V2 to make full use of it. - Diesel Place : Chevrolet and GMC Diesel Truck Forums

Tanc crusher should be thanked many times over for compiling this info.

Within an hour or so I was able to customize my V2. Its really simple if you follow those directions. I did a cal flash and data logged without the laptop. The only problem I ran into was I didn't format the SD card and it wouldnt let me write to the V2. When you are setting it up make sure you press f4>f1>f1 on the V2 and change the file sys to SD after you format it the first time on Internal.

Now go get some use out of your tuning suite!

you could just get a netbook and do the logging from that. It's small and you could probably fit it in the glovebox. not to mention you can get one real cheap

eh just get a power inverter and you'll be golden :rockin
I have a 12v charger for my laptop for that very reason ;)
until you pop a fuse and dont have a spare then you can't charge it!!!!!

but then again if you pop the cig fuse you are Le Screwed anyway...

I just like it cause I don't need to drag around my 3k laptop that the battery lasts an hour lol.

I can plug my V2 in and be logging before you can turn your laptop on. :D Besides, when you dragrace its a pain in the ass to have the computer there. Half the time I forget to hit record.
