COBB Tuning has added three new features to the COBB Tuning Nissan GT-R AccessPORT that will revolutionize how drivers will enjoy their cars. Introducing On the Fly Map Switching, Fast Map Flashing and in-dash Knock Indicator to monitor knock in real time!

On the Fly Map Switching!

COBB Tuning has engineered a brand new way of switching maps on the fly! GT-R owners can now switch maps while driving, simply by using the factory cruise control switches on the steering wheel and see which map has been selected via the in-dash display boost gauge. Our new v300 Off-The-Shelf maps have the performance map loaded in the default slot 0 and a low-boost economy map in slot 1*. ProTuners can create map files with up to 9 different On-the-Fly selectable maps! Follow this link to watch a video of how On-The-Fly Map Switching works.

Fast Flash is Here!

The flash time required for the COBB Tuning AccessPORT to flash a new map file to the ECU has been reduced from 10 minutes to 40 seconds or less for all GT-R AccessPORTs! This enhancement dramatically improves the dyno-tuning workflow for professional tuners, as well as makes end-user flashing for different fuel grades, boost levels and security features much more convenient**. Follow this link to watch a video describing Fast Flash.

Knock Indicator

COBB Tuningís new Knock Indicator displays knock events in real time, as they occur, on the GT-Rís in-dash display**. This is a very useful way to immediately see if a new modification is causing knock or if a local fuel quality is not as advertised. This is a critical monitor for drivers who push their GT-Rs to the limit! Follow this link to watch a video of the new Knock Indicator in action.

To use these new features, simply update the AccessPORT firmware following these Step-By-Step Instructions. In addition, all v300 OTS maps can be found in the Nissan AccessPORT Map Database. COBB Tuning is committed to bringing the GT-R enthusiast community new products and features that will enhance how they enjoy and drive their cars. Stay tuned for new AccessPORT enhancements in the coming months!

* Only Map switching enabled v300 Off-The-Shelf and AccessTUNER Pro v1.8.6.0-498 maps will support On-The-Fly map switching. This feature will not work on maps released prior to this release.

** Requires AccessPORT firmware 1.6.3.0-496 or later.

Can we switch to "valet mode" map this quickly? (I thought earlier the answer was no... but wanted to check).

Either way, this goes into my "bad ass" column for today.

Nice work!

We've gone back and forth on this one, and we've decided for now to leave the Valet out of the map switching maps. Just too many ways it could be a problem. If you were driving down the road and change your map and went too far, bam valet mode, or even worse anti-Theft.

The fast flashing feature will allow you to change the full map to a valet map in about 40 seconds. That should be fast enough for most of you.

Good deal. I can handle 40 seconds. Although, if you somehow made valet map only accessible "on the fly" while car was in Park, that would probably solve the concerns you note above. Of course, I have no idea what that entails in the way of programming so there's a pretty good chance this sounds like crazy talk.

I just installed the new firmware. Love the map switching of the off-the-shelf maps, and knock flash on the boost gauge.

However...when I try to switch maps, it still takes 8 and a half minutes or so. Each percentage point takes 4-6 seconds!

Any idea why that is?

It should be faster when you switch between v3 maps for each change after the first v3 map you put on. If this is not the case please pm Joe who has posted above with your model year and the name of the map you were on before you switched and the name of the map you were switching to.

Thanks thistle. That was indeed my first flash to v3 map. Will try another one later.

You're right. After the first flash, any subsequent flashes are very fast. Thanks for the help!

My tuner was telling me its a little bit of hassle to switch the parameters from V2 map he made custom to a V3 map if I want the new options. Is Cobb goign to offer this service or just the custom tuners?

If they were not standard the following need to be fixed converting v2 to v3:

1. Boost limit needs to have the intended values put back in (1 minute)
2. Injector scaler needs to be fixed (1 minute)
3. X-axes of the fuel, ignition and valve timing maps need to have the intended values put back in (2 minutes)
4. Set the number of extra maps to 0 (1 mnute)

Total 5 minutes for the most complex map I can think of. Maybe your tuner just needs a bit of time to get used to the new features, we've broken the minimum possible things to allow upgrade.

Then save the file and it can be flashed.

Cobb have converted all their base maps, but they can't offer a service to convert all your custom maps.

I running now 5 maps.
map0: old map, i little decreased injector scalar value(-5%), then idle af correction ~100%, and full throttle is too around af correction 100%.
map1: little higher boost at high rpm wgdc60% 1.1bar at redline( no knock)
map2: little lower boost wgdc 40%
map3: wgdc0% boost but these settings is 1bar at 7000rpm
map4: wgdc65% at high rpm little different than other map 1.13bar at redline(no knock)
Knock flashing i don't try, because i have rarely little knock.

First v3 map slow flashing, but the second map very fast 1 min flash to ecu this is fantastic.
TCM flash is slow, but need TCM flashing infrequently.

Any word on when new LC flashes are likely to be generally available? I gather that it's possible to flash from LC2 back to LC1 now, but I'm looking to go from LC2 to LC3 or something custom that is more aggressive than LC2 but not as aggressive as LC1.
