SERVER UPGRADE TONIGHT 9/9/2020

Just a note to advise of further server upgrades tonight. Site will be down for a couple of hours and you will know when it is back up due to it being open for business again.

Thanks.

You may receive short term connection dropouts at different times over the next few days while I perform server upgrades.

They will be short lived but some of the databases are huge so if something is down then give it 5.

Spent a good 3 days sorting this, have moved to a new VPS. Everything should be functioning and including email notifications hopefully.

Recovered database intact so happy days.

Re: Version 3 upgrade from 3.0 to 3.3

Some facts regarding Sync 3 to help understand fact from fiction. Most users need to not get confused with Sync 3, 3.0 with thinking or writing as Sync 3.3. Both are nothing alike and each only apply to a particular year of vehicle. Basically if you have version 3.0 you will not be upgrading to vers...

Re: Version 3 upgrade from 3.0 to 3.3

Correct information as per below. This is probably caused by the software not checking for the correct hardware on install. Pre My18.5 unit have different size partitions which makes sense. Realistically pre MY18.5 should not see a 3.3 update anyway. To clarify there are no viruses in any of these p...

99% of Sync 3 in Australia would not even be able to install version 3.3 due to smaller partition sizes.

125kw should replace the current 2.2l.

I have not posted anything about the twin turbo 2l 150kw+, post is more to do with the standard feature list on an XLT.

125kw is just general reference for the specific VIN I pulled.

Re: Manifold EGT PID teaser

I have found this to be the EGRT. EGR temperature sensor.

So the temperature probe in the exhaust manifold is the EGRT and not an EGT and will only read to 215 degrees. Although I have found the PID it is not of much use for what we are after.
