It's not anything we're looking to do but you can ask the 3rd party interface companies if they'd want to take it up. Show them there is a demand and they might be interested.

Is there an alternative link to information on the wheel controls for the pre-ISO G5 JB4 wheel controls? I just purchased a 335i that already has a JB4 in it, however it only has the 9 menus and I can't get to flashing the new firmware for a couple days.

We remove obsolete information to avoid confusion. Might be something floating around on the forum. But I'd cut those diodes and update the firmware.

My mistake I thought it was for more then just mapping ? Any changes in the newest interface. I see it went from 265 to 269? Anything major or just tweaks? Does the newer interface go together with the newest hex file 28.4 T4.hex ? One last question, does E85 raise the octane enough to run on map 7 without the back end flash ? Or is map 7 for race gas period ? Your replies are much appreciated ! And for always trying to improve the JB4 !

That functionality was removed about a year ago with the JB4 Windows/laptop software. Several people would like it back (including myself), but I think it created too many headaches for BMS support. I would figure having that feature would help and not hurt. But who knows, I don't work there

There has never been and still isn't a way to do that. It's pretty easy to set the menu options manually though.

Added 28.5 to the first post for testing. It's the same as the last 28.4 previously posted only there were so many versions of 28.4 floating around I incremented it to ensure everyone has the latest.

So previously there was a issue calculating the average ignition ?
It was driving me nuts and running out of ideas, I will load up new hex and report .

Well I already installed the new interface with the G5_ISO_28_4_T4.hex firmware. Then I installed your updated E85 back end flash. Figures my battery died during the flash. I re flashed the stock bin. then the E85 flash. Wow Terry, I just got back from a few test runs. Was running decent on map 5. I switched over to map 7 and look out. This is the best combo I have run yet. No codes, much much smoother, and it @#$@#@! moves out. Spun all four tires, fronts were scratching for traction. This is in my XI coupe. The gauge was steady near 19 pounds of boost. Bravo Terry. With the other flash combos it ran rough or cut out for a sec, popped a code etc. This ran perfect, I just hope it stays this way!

It's a calculated imaginary number so there is no inherent "wrong way" for it to calculate. I did change the logic though in the new version which I think will be more conducive to some of the back end flash map changes we've made.

In other words, map 5 was made "too safe" for most cars. It became a problem when all 6 cylinders were capable of logging and the lowest timing values were used for map 5 calculations.

Correct interpretation, Terry?

Not exactly but in any event it has changed and may continue to be changed in the future. So just take it for what it's worth. A relative number to evaluate knock. Not gospel.

Based on my logging, ISO 28 created much lower map 5 targets (for me). With ISO 28.5, my map 5 targets are higher, but still not as high as pre-ISO 28.

I usually run map 6, 7, or 3. But it is nice to be able to run map 5 again for added "safety"

Feel any difference in Map 7? I haven't loaded a new firmware since 28.0 because it seemed like the newer firmwares were for guys running the 3.5bar TMAP but after seeing a new Avg_Ign calculation I'll update tonight.

Haven't had much of a chance to play around yet after the holidays. My E85 mix is all screwed up after driving to AZ for the weekend so I'm running a pump flash right now. I'm probably around E35 right now, and have been targeting around 15.5 PSI on map 5. Pre-ISO 28 I would be targeting 17 PSI all day because the JB4 only saw Cyl 1 and that's my happiest cylinder

And I'm pretty sure map 7 shouldn't be affected with the new JB4 firmware. Maybe the flashes are making map 7 better, but my understanding is that map 5 is the only thing touched in 28.5.

There are some minor changes in there to the PID logic, but the new flashes should be making everything a little better.

You're right about the new flashes. I didn't know I was running the new flash at NFZ AZ but damn am I glad I was
