 System requirements: 

Smartphone or tablet Android version 4.4 minimum, dual Core 1.2 Ghz mini and OTG (for connection through USB).

Note:

The cheap phones or tablets with Android Go versions do not have enough memory to run TuneECU and no OTG support for using a USB cable.

You can test your phone or tablet for OTG connectivity with the app "USB Host Test" and / or the app "OTG Troubleshooter" from Google Play Store.

·      Cable USB OBD2 KKL FTDI (The cable is the same as the windows version)

·      Adapter USB/micro (cable OTG) if needed.

·      Optional: Interface Bluetooth ELM327, version 1.4 or 1.5.

Attention: For the Triumph models, which can be reprogrammed via Bluetooth, special Bluetooth adapters like the OBDLink LX or the OBDLink MX or OBDLink MX+ must be used, only these adapters allow the reprogramming of the compatible models (see Bikes list).

Remedy: Download the OBDLink app from the Google Play Store and update the firmware of the OBDLink adapter.

For the Walbro Benelli models, a special converter USB/RS232 cable and AMP Super-Seal connector (6 pin)  is required.

For Aprilia, KTM, Benelli, Husqvarna, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Gilera & Moto Morini ECUs, in addition to the OBD2 cable or Bluetooth an OBD2 adaptor is required and is available from Lonelec (see Adaptors list).

 Tablet recommended: 

Acer Iconia One 10 B3-A40 Tablet 10.1"

Samsung Galaxy TAB A 10.5" (2018 Android 9.0)
