..::PSI::.. ActiveAutowerke SIMON Hand Held Programmer!

The Ultimate Hand Held Software Programmer

Conventional software tuning requires the BMW ECU to be shipped to the BMW tuner like Active Autowerke where its modified/uploaded at their facility by their software engineers. Once upgraded, your ECU is then reshipped back to you via Fedex with a minimum downtime. The ECU is then re-installed back into your BMW and then made ready for your driving pleasure. Total down time is minimum three days.

With the SIMON hand held programmer, you become the one uploading the performance software into your own BMW. All that is required is the ownership of the SIMON hand held programmer, a laptop and access to the internet for use of e-mail correspondence.

The SIMON tool will communicate and read the ECU data within your BMW. You then upload this stock data file from thte SIMON tool to your laptop and later submit via e-mail to Active Autowerke your stock ECU data. Once received by Active Autowerke, the performance reflash/upload is created and resent back to you via e-mail. All of this can be accomplished within the same day.

Best of all, there is no down time with your BMW. By reading the stock ECU data through the OBD11 diagnostic port, you are only making a copy of the existing ECU data so your BMW remains intact and can still be driven normally. The benefits are great considering your reside on another continent with a different time zone. Add the possibility of having the package become lost or damage while in transit and the down time of three days or more versus a one day upload when done by yourself.

The SIMON stores both stock and performance files on your personal laptop. This is extremely beneficial if the need arises to revert back to a stock, factory setting. If you are a racer, the SIMON has the capability to store multiple software files like a ** race gas tune ** as well.
