    ***IMPORTANT UPDATE 7/14/14***

    We have resolved a bug that resulted in the incorrect display of the "HDFX Table Weight" monitors. This has been resovled in Alpha FW 8725. Please update again to obtain this fix!

    ***IMPORTANT UPDATE 7/14/14***

    We've put together an Alpha firmware for those of you who have experienced excessively high or low values when live monitoring or datalogging. This also addresses the issue of flickering shift lights. If you have had any of the mentioned behaviors with your Accesport V3 please perform the following steps to install Alpha firmware on your Accessport.

    [​IMG]

    1. Within Accessport Manager 2.0 navigate to the "Options" tab.
    2. Click on the Advanced>> button.
    3. Place a check in the "Use alternate update location:" box.
    4. In the new text box enter the following URL: http://www.accessecu.com/support/accessport/alpha
    5. Navigate to the "Updates" tab
    6. Click the "Check for firmware update" or "Begin firmware update" button.

    Once this update is complete please put the live monitoring and datalogging tasks through their paces and report your feedback in this thread.

    Thank you for your participation.

    Braden, just to be clear, I won't need to reflash the car to test this right? I just need to update the AP and plug it back into the car?

    That is correct, just load the firmware and use as normal. No flashing required.

    Initial indications are good :) Drove home and pushed it to max boost many times and no more bogus max reading :)

    Same here, drove around about an hour on and off highways, no bogus readings either!

    FYI Cobb, when I switched from 5 gauge to 6 gauge all my false reading disappeared. This is on the older firmware that's nonalpha

    I've been using the 6 gauge display all along.

    So far so good. Boost readings were never an issue, and that trend continues! The Estimated torque no longer reads 377+ while driving like a regular schmo. YAY!
    I was running 6 as well, I tried everything from 1 all the way to 6.

    Thanks for the efforts guys!
