TigerTool V3.0 Almost Ready - Beta Testers Wanted
« on: May 30, 2020, 03:26:48 PM »
I've finished TigerTool V3.0 as far as I can for now and so it's ready for beta testers. It's already been tested on a Tiger Sport to check the new TPMS sensor programming and instrument menu options, all of which worked perfectly.

More details on the features of V3 can be found here.
https://www.tiger-explorer.com/index.php/topic,18075.0.html

Ideally you should already be familiar with TigerTool and have the necessary ELM327 OBD cable / interface for your PC. I'm looking for any issues or error messages when using the software as I now only have my virtual Tiger800 and Tiger 1200XRT to use for code development & testing. The beta version includes debug code that would might be of interest to me if you have any problems while testing. Also just some general usage feedback would be very useful.

I need to spend some time re-writing the manual but I can do that while others are trying to find any bugs.

PM me if interested & able to help, then I'll reply with a download link.

I'm guessing that it doesn't run on a Mac? We have 5 laptops 4 running OSX and one running Linux and unfortunately can't use the tool so far. I did have a small notepad running Windows but it just didn't seem to ever want to work.
It's a shame because it sounds like a great piece of work

I know some people run TigerTool on a Mac using Boot Camp, Wine or VirtualMachine.

Might be worth searching here and the 800 forum for other opinions and info.

I repurposed an old Netbook running Windows XP. Netbooks were super cheap 8" screen sub-notebooks that were popular for a short time before phones got bigger.

Back in the Tiger 1050 days, I was using a windows virtual machine on my Mac to tweak the ECU. VirtualBox comes for free, easy to install and all you need is a Windows image or DVD.

I don't think I have a proper cable (ELM327?) though so I'll pass the testing program, sorry!

Anyone with a mk2 Explorer able to run a quick test with the latest Beta version of TigerTool?

This should be the model with the updated (elongated) LCD and from VIN 740277 onwards.

Thanks.

I'd happy to test it out.  I've been using TigerTool V2.5 successfully but I don't have a mk2.  I have a 2015 Explorer.  Will this version have the ability to read sensor values?

Hi there.  I've been using 2.5 on my 2014 TEX and it has worked very well, thanks for building that!  A buddy came over yesterday with his 2017 Xrx and asked if I could turn off the wrench (service light).  Turns out he has a 2018!  It seemed to connect easy enough and using the "SIA Reset" tab, I received reset OK indication however only the mileage was reset, not the date and the wrench didn't turn off.  2.5 only supports thru 2017, correct?  Looking forward to 3.0 in that case.

Again, thanks for doing all of this.

V2.5 supports all 3 generations of Explorer / 1200, hence it resetting the mileage on your mate's bike. The process only resets the mileage count until the next service, then the bike's own system decides if the service light (wrench symbol) is on or off.

On newer models that have a calendar function you have to reset the date manually from the menu, after which the service light should go out. On some bikes you may need to power-cycle the ignition for the new settings to take affect. I've got access to the date reset command so will try to add it at a later date but as this function is easily accessible to the rider it's not a high priority.
