yes they do, heh.. have done a ton of them.. not sure what the issue is you're having, which is why I suggested you contact tech support...

either you don't have it in the correct ignition mode and it's timing out on you when you try to do an install, or you haven't run the updater to get the ecm unlock key to be able to install the tune in the car, etc.. but contact support as I mentioned in the email I sent you, and they'll getch'a going no problem...

Laptop, Tablet etc

Not the same as having a small phone sized thing that has multiple tunes loaded in it that allows one to switch on the fly like Cobb has.
I hate to have a laptop in the car on a daily basis just to change a tune when going to a tire shop or restaurant. I don't have a Surface or HP tuner thing and won't buy anything until I know I can change a tune on the fly. Why is the GM world so dated in this?

Default Question for 06MonteSS

Does the I2 now support the 2019 Z06 with canned tunes and turning off V8/V4 mode, etc.

I guess not, I now have made about 12 attempts. Much more difficult than the old Edge or Mustang tuner. Maybe its my Laptop?

David are you talking about running the updater ? You can download the latest version on line at the Diablo site . When I updates my older I1000 it ran all night but it did finally update

My new I3 updated in a few minutes tops

I don't think I am that crazy that I have to put a different tune in my car because I am going to a restaurant or valet parking lol lol . If I am that worried I hand the valet 10 bucks and tell him I am parking it tell me where u want it . 😁😁😁

Remember writing to the PCM is just like updating the BIOS on your computer .. you should only do it when you have to as there is always the chance that you will BRICK it .... and that would just be bad .....

Yep, normal.. 2017/2018/2019 vehicles require a special unlock sequence... so what will happen is, when you go to install a tune the first time, the tool will give you a message that "one or more controllers can not be tuned - Contacting powertech for vehicle unlock... you will be notified within 1-2 days" - or something similar to that effect.. so then in 1-2 days (usually within an hour though) you should receive an email (if you registered your tool on diablo's site) that your update is ready.. or just run the updater again to update your tool in an hour or so - so then you'd run the Ignition Updater on the tool again, and it will update the tool with the unlock code for your ECM, and then you'd be able to tune the vehicle.
