Maybe I have it wrong here but I thought when you buy the Axone, you buy it via the Aprilia distributor with everything setup for downloads and so on and you are "in". But, usually only dealers can buy from distributors and the only option left is to buy Axone from TEXA. But buying direct from TEXA does not include userid/passwords etc to get access to Aprilia stuff.

    Yes, maybe this is very wrong, but that's how I remember it.

    the Axone is just a basic OBDII computer terminal (think Commodore 64 computing power)....its no Pentium power

    on the back of the computer is a place for cartridges, these are what contain the vehicle specific programs. There are Aprilia, M-G, Ducati, Volvo, and probably Saab, M-B, BMW, etc cartridges too....these give the Axone computer function. We have an osciliscope cartridge too to make it into a an oscilliscope. Car shops all over Europe use the Texa Axone diagnostic computer with various catridges and cables setups. Car shops over here mainly use the Snap-On MT2000 computer in the same manner.

    To get the Aprilia cartridges, the complete Axone/cartridge/cable package must be ordered from an aprilia dealer. When you buy it, you can get all the software updates by a dial-up connection to Texa.

    cripe, this sounds stone-age ... why not a simple port of the software to a PC-based architecture and run everything through USB? I am sure they are thinking about this ... it seems so simple.

    The functionality on the AXONE, from what I saw, is not that deep and it really doesn't do much computing at all...
    What am I doing now ?

    This guy http://www.tuneboy.com.au/ was working on one for the RSV but i think he run into trouble decrypting the RSVs computer . I use his software on my Triumph. Its Brilliant. Check it out you can download http://www.tuneboy.com.au/Support/Download.html the software for free and have a play with all its functions.

    You can believe what you remember someone else telling you two years ago or you can believe what I'm telling you now, your choice.

    I purchased my AXONE two years ago when I got my first Factory, one year before I started working for an Aprilia dealer, Spectrum.
    Once I figured out how to use if, I've had no trouble downloading all the updates since, without any special authorization or passwords from Aprilia or anyone else.

    I bought an axone one year ago and same goes.

    Even if this was on a PC, I'll take the axone anytime. Who the hell wants to use a PC? Laptop or not, what a PITA. I've packed my laptop around for the PCIII and nothing but hassles seeing the screen. You need a shady day, or a cover to go under. And this is not a dull screen we're talking about.

    with the backlit LCD panel on the axone, I can always see it...and it's simple to use. If you can't use the axone, step away from anything electronic

    In an effort to minimize the number of things that I have to sherpa around with me or otherwise manage at the track I would rather it all be on one machine (laptop). Glad you like the AXONE the way it is but I would much rather have a PC version similar to the PC3 software. Just a difference in ideas ...

    So how much did the Axone set you back Doc? And how did you get it ... in case someone would want to get one.
    What am I doing now ?

    I would be nice if they could open up a litle so you could adjust cell values like with a PCIII. It could be simple as a text file with some known structure with comma seperated info or so.

    Maybe that would make the final result better than using a PCIII. I've read, from different sources who claim they loose power when using a Power Commander with zero mapp. If that's due to the delay which I measured to 20ms between in and outs, or if it's true at all - I don't know though.

    I got it from a dealer that dumped Aprilia when things got nasty last year. It was not 'cheap'.

    Did you get a chance to look at the Tuneboy/Tunedit software. Pity someone here couldn't lend a hand with breaking the code on the RSVs ecu
