FlashPro - PC datalogging vs FP Standalone

Post by GameOver69 » Tue Dec 16, 2014 7:13 am

All,

First off, some quick details have a 2012 TSX MT with the proper FlashPro that i purchased less then a month ago.

I am currently working with Vit on an eTune, and we noticed some inconsistencies detailed below:

There is a difference in datalogging between datalogging from the PC (via the FP), and just the FP itself. Has anyone ever seen this?

When datalogging via just the FP (which i have been doing until today), my CAM sensor (actual VTC cam angle) is always showing a negative value, lets say around -20, that changes throughout my drive a few degrees.... and thats without hitting VTEC or WOT. Also, in my sensors window CAM, doesn't even show up, only Commanded Cam Angle does.

Now, when i datalog via PC (wanted to see the sensor reading in real time today)... my CAM sensor shows 0 the whole time, until i hit VTEC or WOT. Via PC, it also shows the CAM Angle in the Sensor Window, and not just my Display Window like when it is FP only. (i BELIEVE this is what it should show, correct me if i am wrong in my assumption)

Any reason for this inconsistency? Should i be worried about my FP, and that there may be something wrong with it? Let me know as i bought it brand new, and if i have to return it to exchange i would like to do so sooner then later.

I was originally concerned that i had an issue with the VTC actuator, or even engine timing. Hopefully that is not the case now that i have seen what datalogging via PC displays, plus i haven't heard any odd sounds at startup or had any CEL regarding the VTC actuator.

Thanks for your comments in advance. Hopefully this isn't a big issue.

Regards,

VitViper

Yes I think we have a datalog recording issue -- I can send the pertinent logs/map to Derek if this helps.

This firmware update did not fix the issue. I am having the same exact problem when logging from the FP by itself. Works fine in conjunction with PC.
If you need to send you the datalog file, let me know where i can send it to.

Did you create new datalogs, or are you downloading existing datalogs?

It tests out ok here. We're going to have to get an 2012 TSX here for testing.

Just wanted to mention that the latest firmware update from the other day seems to have resolved the issue.

Thanks
