G4+ (Fury) Tuning Cable Extension

Recommended Posts

The ECU is in the boot... the mapping needs to be done in the car. The provided cable isn’t long enough. 

What is the recommended approach? To get a USB extension cable, or to get a longer Link tuning cable?

If its working for you - then great, but in my experience they can be pretty flaky with extensions, so keep an eye on it and dont rule out the extension if you ever have trouble doing a store or downlolading a log etc.  I've had a few calls from MR2 owners in the past having comms problems due to needing an extension cable to reach the cabin.

If you ever have drama, a USB hub or active USB extension should work better in theory.  Or Richards USB server is a nice option too.

Thanks Adam. Just for other people’s future reference who happen across this topic...

The cable I purchased is an ADVENT (AUEX48M15) USB 2.0 Extension. 3 metres (plugged into 1.5 metre Link tuning cable). Bought from Curry’s / PC World in UK.

I’ve done ignition base timing and about 2 hours of settings and fuel table stuff so far with no issues... however heed Adam’s warning in case there are connectivity issues!

USB extension cables work fine.  I have also had success with USB over WiFi using virtual here. 

I’d like more info on this usb over wifi so i could just mount the module under the dash and never have to pull it out.

 

thanks!

USB over WiFi requires a compatible router.  They are about 30 pounds iirc. There is a topic on this forum about it. 

 

I would say though that it is not as reliable as a USB cable so I would only use it if I had to. 

HTH, 

Richard.
