• HP Tuners releases MPVI2 bluetooth OBDII device with internal logging support

      So what is this MPVI2 product and what does it do? Well, it is an OBD-II device that when plugged in is capable of scanning, storing, diagnostics, logging, and ECU calibrations. As it has internal memory it can store logs as well as multiple maps.

      In theory, it sounds pretty awesome:

      In practice, this will likely be relegated to mostly domestic applications as HP Tuners software and products usually are.

      It sounds like a dream product though with the ability to tell you everything about what your car is doing and allowing you to log without connecting a laptop and connect to bluetooth devices. It still also allows for a wired connection as well.

VCM Editor enables you to adjust a multitude of complex parameters such as torque strategies, spark tables, fueling, RPM limits, fan activations, transmission shift points and pressures, exhaust valve control, speedometer settings and many more. Finally, you can write these changes back to the various vehicle control modules via the MPVI2.
      HP Tuners plans to expand the functionality as well:

      This all sounds fantastic for $299 but to get the full impact of features you need the VCM suite.

      It remains to be seen what platforms are supported but if you do not have a domestic car do not get your hopes up.

        Damn, I have MPVI already and a bunch of credits already but actually $299 for just the device isn't bad and I can still use my license for VCM and credits.

        A lot of people here have probably never had the pleasure of using HP Tuners, but it is an awesome thing. The GM applications can adjust almost any engine or trans parameter you can imagine, (with more being added). The logging abilities are also top notch; so many different filters and mathematic formulas that can be added to present very specific data points. The VCM suite is worth every penny of it’s relatively cheap price.
