Smile Vishnu Procede Command Center

How included in all our Procede tunes (both n54 and n55):

Please excuse the production quality of this video. First time using iMovie and I'm a terrible public speaker And also ignore the revving engine at 1:18. It's from a neighbor's Ducati. I could only wish the n54 sounded like that!



This reference guide will be updated as we add new features/functionality. But right off the bat, it's got some pretty useful stuff. Don't be surprised if we eventually have 8 modes with 20+ commands in each.


Summary:
We we did was re-vamp the way you control your Procede tune/tune options. And we did it with a simple intuitive (and very upgradeable) interface that doesn't require the use of a laptop computer. And instead of having random button pressing sequences that you need to remember, you will now only need to keep a reference guide handy and use the cruise control stalk/button and steering wheel volume buttons to navigate through the wealth of new features/options. These new features include include various useful adaption reset commands, in-dash gauge display calibration options, and new mapswitching functionality.

Details:
The Vishnu Command Center only works with the ignition ON but engine not running. To enable the Command Center, simply pull the cruise control stalk fully towards you (2 clicks) and hold for 1 second. Immediately, your tachometer will show 1000rpm or Mode 1. To go to different modes, simply push or pull the stalk (1 click). Mode 2, 3, etc,. will be represented by 2000, 3000, etc,. on the tach, respectively.

Within each mode, there are a number of commands as listed in the reference guide (see attached). To select the desired command, simply bump the cruise control stalk up or down. The active command is represented by KPH in the speedometer. Command 1, 2, 3, etc,. is represented by 10KPH, 20KPH, 30KPH, etc,. To execute the selected command, simply press the button on the cruise control stalk. When you do this, the in-dash turn signal indicators will light up for a moment. This indicates that the command was sent successfully.

Currently, most of the commands are simply "one shot" commands which require nothing more than pressing the button on the cruise control stalk to execute. The only current exception is the the 2-Stage Shift-Light RPM Adjust command which allows the user to adjust it to their liking. Upon executing the Shift-Light RPM adjust command (with cruise control stalk button), the tach will display 8000RPM which is the default Shift-Light RPM value (effectively OFF). To adjust the RPM value, simply use the volume up/down buttons on the steering wheel. The RPM value is adjustable between 5000RPM and 8000RPM in 100RPM increments. In future updates we, well add more settings. And more of them will be adjustable like this one.

To exit out of the Vishnu Command Center simple start the engine or push the cruise control stalk forward 2 clicks.

In summary, with this new update you can use the Vishnu Command Center do the following:
Adjust a 2-Stage Shift-Light RPM
Select in-dash Gauge Calibration
Select in-dash Gauge Display Options
DME Code Read
DME Code Clear
DME Reset
Throttle Adaption Reset
Lambda Adaption Reset
AFR Adaption Reset
Battery Adaption Reset
Knock Adaption Reset
Octane Adaption Reset
VANOS Adaption Reset
VVT Adaption Reset
6AT Trans Adaption Reset
Transport Mode On (4500RPM rev limit)
Transport Mode Off (7000RPM rev limit)
... with much more to come soon.


It's also worth mentioning that you can now switch between maps using the Cruise Control Stalk. All you need to do is bump and hold (for 1 second) the cruise control stalk up or down. Pushing it up will increase the map # selection. Dropping it down will lower it. The advantage of this mapswitching method (compared to the still-active DTC double-click method) is that it doesn't have the potential interfere with your current DCT setting.
