Brand new V-Tech problems
I hook it up to the ski and gives me 3 options and from what I see it doesn't read anything from the vehicle.
1) Program Vehicle
2) Error Codes
3) Request tuning.
I hook it up to my computer and it says the unit is registered to someone else? WTF is going on here? I emailed V-Tech but I was wondering if anyone else had these issues.

I have to use my gmail. My normal email address is from work and our largest client basically forces PCI compliance on me so I have my filters so aggressive nothing gets through unless it's whitelisted ahead of time. Annoying as all hell.
Also annoying I had to come into work to pick up the maptuner that was supposed to be delivered Wednesday and I find out it doesn't work. Looks like My weekend is F'd if I don't get this sorted out. He gave me his cell but when I text it says user not subscribed to SMS. $1K for something that doesn't work out of the box The interwebs are broke all over

when you hook it up to your ski you need to select request tuning. then hook up to your computer and it will send the info from your ski to their server. at that point i you receive and automated email with username/password. hth

Ive heard to many stories about the vtech support to even think about purchasing one. The whole email for support, buy a tuning credit, connect to the ski and register your ski on their site. Seems a little excessive to me. IMO the unit should cost ~1200 and you should get FULL access to maptuner, all tunes online, and the handheld. Not $500 for the maptuner, then $600 for the tunes online, and another $400 for the handheld.
I appreciate tuners like this providing products for our community, but when they dont work right it just causes issues. Sorry to hear that you dropped $1000 for a new product and cant even get it working, much less a response from the manufacturer.
I will throw this out there since this is an ECU thread. Would anyone be interested in another standalone engine management, similar to Motec? I have been talking with some people about coming up with a way to integrate ProEFI to work with the Seadoos. If your not familiar with the modified car world, ProEFI is one of the big name aftermarket engine management systems. Seems like there are very limited numbers of ways to remove the GPS AND raise RPM limits. Just food for through.

Im sorry to hear about your problem!! I dont want to get too involve on this because what i have to say is not good!!! What i can say is that i bought my vtech last year and still trying to get my ski to run propertly!! I ended up buying the CMD to correct the fuel problems on my Vtech tuned! I hope that Jonatan can fix you up soon.... JONATAN IF YOU READ THIS PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAILS I SENT YOU THE LOG THAT YOU WANTED TO SEE!!!

I totally agree that there should be a state side representative. Registration should be instant. Hope you get it sorted!
