My car has the most recent round of ECM updates. It's not that I keep taking my car into the dealer, it was s single time/application of updates... which in turn took away compatibility (at least *full* compatibility) with my Predator. I know it's not the guy I purchased the unit from fault, this is all on Diablo to sport out.

asfor tearing the trunk liner out, the book that came with this POS said to pull the RADIO ,AMP and somthing else The radio and amp fuses are in the trunk passenger side................Yep..................still frustrated
Right, AFM is my biggy too. Before I did anything though I read (scoured?) the DiabloSports forums for anything 2010 Camaro related. This is where I learned that the only real fuse to pull is the OnStar, this is also where I learned everything else I know about the Predator. It's a great unit, when *full* compatibility is in play... right now, we're in kind of a no man's land though, until DiabloSports gets there act together.

Post on the DiabloSports forums, let's effect change!!

UPDATE: Just read another thread on the DiabloSports forum, apparently "GM just changed to an entire different diagnostic system called Global Diagnostics and ALL the programming companies are working to make the right corrections with their tuners."

We need to be vocal with DiabloSports guys.... this is the only way we are going to see things get back to where they are supposed to be.

WHO KNOWS HOW?????

It is under the modify tune menu, select DOD, then select off, and then reinstall the tune.

Unfortunately this doesnt leave a good feeling with me.......I know its not their fault that Gm Keeps changing stuff but.......mine doesnt work yet and it doesnt have all of the features i bought it for yet...........Frustrating
Is this Predator giving you the option to install a performance tune?

I recall your calibration as not being supported currently, so I cant see why it would let you modify parameters...

See my many posts on your board and the lengthy ones above here, Mike. No option to install performance tunes, only to modify the existing (which it doesn't let you do, instead information that parameters are not supported) or install the original tune, which is pointless unless you are wanting to 'divorce' the unit to go with an HP Tune (because your Predator isn't working like it's supposed to.)

Word on your forums is that this is "being worked on" - I heard that too, a few weeks back when r11 bricked my car. You guys were great about getting me going again, thanks again to Vass btw, but how about taking the next step and getting us a product that works?

I am at the track every weekend, Mike. It'd be great if I had good things to say about my Predator again.

This thread has been very informative for a newb looking to purchase a Trinity system. I have heard rumors that the Trinity system was the best dollars money could buy for the new Camaro and this info has helped greatly

Diablo needs to step up and get it corrected, fast. Your tech help line should be open on SAT and Sunday 7am to 7pm. That is when most of us have time to work on our cars. For some reason the world expects us to work during your available hours. If you really want our business, you would respect our needs over your own convenient hrs....just my 2 cents

At least some level of support during the weekend for sure. I spoke with them today to confirm that the 2010 Camaro is not *fully* supported by the r11 release... and they said they are working toward having a r12 out that addresses our issues sometime next week (I wonder though, given what next week is!)

r12 is at issue too.. hoping for something good out of r13 though. In fact, you'll notice r12 is no longer available for download.

We're all just gonna have to be patient... that, and persistent with positing our dissatisfaction and expectations on the Diablo Forums as frequently as possible.
