All the custom tunes are pre-loaded on the SD card dependant upon your strategy!
So how does one get the strategy if they dont have a tuner yet? just curious, because i am really thinking about a 6.4 and want to research every aspect of this tuner set up.

You don't need your strategy until you get the tuner....

All the tunes are loaded on the tuner when the customer gets it, thus the work pre-loaded! No more waiting for tunes! :thumb:

I think he is trying to figure out how do you preload the tunes without having the strategy. Are they canned tunes like on the SCT? Without the tuner we can't get our strategy and without the straregy you can't preload the tunes. Right?:dunno:

Still confusing! You have to have the DashDaq in order to read your engine and trans strategies. You then relay that info on and they write tunes accordingly. If the tuner (DashDaq) is preloaded with tunes, how can they be right? :dunno: Maybe I'm just not understanding. I already have tunes, just chiming in! :thumb:

I think they are loading all of the tunes, with every strategy code onto your SD card if I am reading it right. Then you find your stategy out and pick your tunes accordingly?

All the tunes for all strategies are on the SD cards the DashDaq reads your strategies and matches it against whats in the database on the tuner/SD card and selects the tuning files available for your strategy.

Since we have basically unlimited memory with an external SD card, a full set of tune files for each strategy are stored in a protected format on the card.

The tuner scans the truck upon initially loading a tune file, identifies which files to match, and lists the available matching files for your strategy code based on what is read.

It has all the benefits of a pre-loaded tuner, but flashes a full strategy-matched file instead of a reading the existing file and modifying it on-board like most generic flash devices.

All users will have access to the Stock No Regen, 40HP, 75HP, 120HP, 150HP, 175HP, 210HP, and 250HP (the 250 is now included free of charge) right out of the box.

For existing users, there will be a new updater program coming out in a few weeks that will allow all existing tuners to be switched over to the new flash format for anyone who wants it. It will, however, only work on tuners with a single VIN license- it will not work with multiple vehicles (new tuners that need to be used for multiple trucks can be switched back to the old format)

If you're still confused, the tuner comes pre-loaded with all tunes for all possible strategies. When you get the tuner, the tuner determines your strategy, and then selects the appropriate tune.
