You have to wait for the forum page to load then find the required fw select and it will download and be available to update.

Anyone have this issue? Text for map selection, and menus to set gauge types are all behind the gauges and unreadable.





Nexus 7 running 5.1.1 I believe.

I'm not familiar with the VW cars at all. If you're having specific issues that are JB4 related, I'd post a request in the support section.

  • Small spacing issue on DME code tab
The release versions of the updates will have selectable gauge colors.

Which spacing are you referring to?

I'm just worried that it's something with the JB1, if the rpm readings are faulty for the jb then the maps won't work as supposed = less power.
I don't have a windows machine (my work laptop wouldn't recognise the USB drivers for the jb program at all) so right now I can't verify my suspicions. Will maybe get hold of a win laptop during the weekend.

A few people have mentioned RPM issues so test it with the USB Windows interface and let us know.

What can I do to get my dash to function back to normal via steering wheel control, I thought the app is suppose to work in conjunction with steering wheel control. I'll post a video of this also....please help btw I'm running firmware G5 ISO 32-0-2
That's very abnormal. I use the steering wheel controls with the app connected all the time. Did you recently update your firmware? Does it still do it with the kit disconnected?

iOS or Android? Does it show that the hex file actually downloaded?

Sounds like you need to update your JB4 firmware. What version are you currently on?

When I connect none of my gauges work and can't check codes? Seems to have all my user settings though and tells me correct map. I updated my JB4 through the app as well. Any idea?

That's usually a problem with the CAN wires or OBD hookup. Log?

Ahh I still have to hook up my OBD cord, I never did that. I was unaware it was needed for the Bluetooth setup.

The JB4 has to get access to the CAN bus to get a large chunk of the logging info.

That would be a question for the general support section.

The connection loop issue reappeared for me today. 6 connects each time.

Also, when can we get the red gauges back? This is a serious issue for me.

A084 should have it fixed again. Should be live in the next few hours. I'll try to look at adding in the color options this week. After that, if everything is good it should be time for the next public release.

You'll need to make a post in the general support section for JB4 firmware related questions.

It's still disabled as I haven't had time to mess with the new external GPS modules.

Question to users: As far as 0-60/quarter mile do you want a precision tool or a fun toy? If you just want a fun toy we can use the built in GPS modules which have a terrible 1hz refresh.
