The unit is called a JB4 which is the name of our most advanced circuit board with CANbus connection (vehicle data network). It has been tried and tested over many BMW models and it is time for the evolution to start for the VW market.



Sales link to the JB4: http://www.burgertuning.com/vw_volks...Jb4_tuner.html

The JB4 is a true plug and play tune offering safe and adjustable gains.

The unit ships with a base setting in map 1 that increases the boost by +4.0psi over stock that is safe to be used with 91US octane and 95 Euro.



Install instructions:
Install instructions can be found here: http://www.burgertuning.com/images/s...tall_guide.jpg


Connectivity:
To connect to the unit to make changes or do logs you have two options:
1. Laptop connection using our BMS Data Cable via free Windows software. (conventional serial cables will not work and possibly damage the board).

2. Via Bluetooth using our JB4 Connect kit that is IOS and Android compatible. The Bluetooth device replaces the need for our BMS Data Cable. On some Android devices users have has success connecting using our Data Cable. The App for the handset has a separate charge and can be found in the Google play store or App store as JB4 Connect.
The App can also be used for a gauge displaying showing true values, has shift light capability and acceleration times are being worked on.

JB4 connect link here: http://www.burgertuning.com/bluetoot...nnect_kit.html



User interface software:
For users that have opted to purchase the optional but recommended for JB4 BMS Data Cable you will need to download and install the Windows user interface at this link http://www.n54tech.com/flash_files/jb4_interface.zip
There is a 3rd Party Developed Mac interface that can also be used, download link can be found here at bottom of post 1 http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21742

Tutorial of how to install User interface software, connect to unit and make changes.

Video of user interface install and connection: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjQjMWBVve4

Directions on installing the interface and connecting to your JB can be found here http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showpo...21&postcount=1
Firmware is what runs the JB4 unit. As we release new firmware it will be added to post 3 here.

Map selection:
In order to change the map in the picture below under the logging tab you can pick the required map. Under status the unit must show connected. This is done by clicking file and selecting connect.



Upon shipping the following maps are active:


Map 0: This is a stock map with JB4 logging ability. It is also the starter map for cars that are running flash tunes and are stacking the JB4.


Map 1: Tuned map with a average of 4.0psi peak over stock. This is the shipped map and is compatible for both 91 and 93 and can be used with cars on hardware.

Map 4: Stock Safety map

Map 6: Contact George@burgertuning.com to for logging information for customized mapping

FIRMWARE UPDATES

Firmware updates will be posted at the bottom of this thread.. To upload it connect to your JB4 unit (Key on but engine not idling). Go to File then Upload firmware and select the saved file from your laptop. If the upload fails try again without disconnected.

For phone apps follow the instructions at this link: http://jb4connectkit.com/store/index...ormation_id=10 Make sure you browse back to this thread to select the correct firmware.


FAQ:

Can I run the JB4 with another device connected to the CANbus?
No, any other device connected to the OBD port creates latency on the CANbus. The CANbus was designed to allow one device at a time and further data being pulled may create safety issues on the network as well as bad signal to the JB4

Will BMS release cluster display and steering wheel map switching?
At this stage cluster hijack has proven to be cost prohibitive due to the Gateway system used by VW. We are looking at getting cheaper solutions that may be affordable. Steering wheel map switching or in car map switching is something being worked on and will come in a future firmware update.

What future features will the JB4 have?
Currently we working on the code reading ability which will come as the first firmware update. Next in line is an Autotune map. Once we have gathered enough data we will be able to create a dynamic map that will self adjust on the fly maximizing performance regardless of conditions, mods and octane used.
Why is the JB4 released as Beta?
When we release units they stay in Beta for quite a while. Any updates done to the unit are firmware related so they get uploaded using the BMS Data Cable.
The JB1 stayed in Beta for a year with only one update when we opened map 6 use.
The JB4 will be ever evolving as we keep adding features to it relative to customer requests.


Will the JB4 remove my speed limiter?
At this point in time, no. The speed limiter affects many safety parameters and until we are certain there are no ill effects on this we will not have speed limiter removal available. The speed limit exceeded is also a trigger point logged in the ECU which may cause issues down the line for any form of claim.


Can launch control be added for a manual car?
No, at this stage this requires changes in the ECU structure which the JB4 does not access or tamper with. We have had success with this on other brands with add on hardware so its something we to intend down the line.


Can the JB4 support larger turbos?
At this stage on the 1.8T we can support the IS20 and on the GTI the IS38. On the R any larger frame turbo will require a flash of some sort.


How do I know if I can stack the JB4 over my flash tune and what is the process?
This varies on what the flash tune is requesting from the car and if there is room for improvement. If more hardware is used, higher octane or ethanol or meth has been added chances are there is a gain to be had. On stack tuned cars we work one on one with clients so we can understand the trend and get a better idea for the community where gains can be had.


Do I need a professional to custom tune my car if I want more power than the preset maps?
BMS is renowned for its customer service and we can assist any customer with setting his car up to optimize performance. A large online community exists as well where users share their findings. The device works in such a way that it is easy for first time enthusiasts to get a taste of self tuning.


Why does the JB4 read my Vin number and is it Vin locked?
The Vin is read for certain mapping purposes. The unit is not locked to the car which would be unethical and can be resold.


Why is the JB4 cheaper than other options yet more advanced?
The circuit board used in the VW product has been used over many other brands and developed over a period of time so the development cost is spread over many models.

Why were gain numbers pulled from the description on here and on the main site?

Also, I have a unit that has a map 2 option but I haven't used it yet (and I'm tempted to), is it unsafe and should I ignore it? the reason that I ask is that I got a hybrid turbo and was wondering how much more I can push the unit and remain in a safe threshold
