Turning the spartin display on/off

Is there a way to set up the spartan so it will turn on and off with the truck. Mine does not come on automaticly with the truck, I have to push the on off button every time.(Talking about the display)

I have to do the same thing on my Spartan, I would like to know that as well, I also want to know if you can unplug the Spartan after programming the truck? I think I read somewhere that you can unplug the Tuner until you are ready to change tunes again.

In the instructiom book it did say that you could unhook the tuner and the tunes would still be loaded in the truck. The instructions advised not to do so but only because they recomended haveing the gauges to monitor with. It does not effect the tune. It did not say anything about turning the tuner on/off with the truck.

You have to turn the monitor on every time you start the truck, but you can go into your settings and have it turn its self off after the truck is turned off.

I copied this from here a long time ago, so you can set-up the DD to auto power off by following these instructions. Now I don't have a DD or ever tried this, just saying one of the guys wrote this up for people to use. I'm just quoting him.

Quote:
You can also set up auto power off if you wish. Try this:

Auto Power Off
First, you will need to make some changes before you can proceed.
From Gauges, select "Exit".
Now select "Setup", then select "Devices". Now select "Parameters", and scroll right/left till you get to Generic OBDII.
Select "Use 6x CAN (if possible)", then select "Change". Using the keypad, type on 0 (zero), then select "Save".
From Gauges, select "Exit", then select "Setup". Now select "Power". Select the Auto Power Off time that you want to use,
and select "Ok".
The auto-off watches for a lack of OBD2 communication (indicating the the vehicle must have turned off).
So it wouldn't turn off while the engine is running, only when the vehicle is off.
