So you're probably thinking, what else could there be for a professional tuner? Well, read on...
The VCM Suite has certain features that a professional tuner may find more useful. It includes some of the following extra capabilities.
VCM Editors Flash utility allows not just calibration reflashing and automated recovery, but entire VCM/PCM image reflashing. This means that you are free to make any operating system or calibration level modifications and flash those to the VCM/PCM. This has many uses for the advanced enthusiast, serious tuner or engine swap shop, allowing complete control over the VCM/PCM software environment.
The VCM Editor also allows for increased vehicle support for tuners, and also access to extra VCM/PCM operating system code modifcations. Tuners also have the option to modify VIN's, a useful feature for mail order VCM's.
Security. Protect your tunes with Tunerlock. Only you have the ability to read and write to VCM/PCM's that you have Tunerlocked. Prevent unwanted access to your hard work.
The VCM Scanner utility is a fully featured OBDII scanning and diagnostic tool.
It allows viewing, charting and logging of diagnostic data in real time via the vehicle OBDII diagnostic data port. It also allows viewing of vehicle Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) and other vehicle information. Built in VCM controls also supported. Command fans, closed loop, gear select, timing, air fuel ratio and more real time! No editor package can be considered complete without comprehensive scan tool capabilities.
VCM Suite is the complete package.
These components combine to make VCM Suite the most feature rich, powerful and comprehensive VCM/PCM reprogramming and diagnostics package available on the market today. In addition, our attractive make/model/year based licensing structure makes VCM Suite a clear leader in value for money.
