Drove the car with the device installed in a known condition where AFM always seems to kick in. Sport mode - steady speed of about 45 mph. AFM did not kick in. Reached down and unplugged the device fr the obdII port. AFM kicked in shortly after. Convinced this does not modify the stock ECM parameters for AFM.
Good job Range. Thanks for this product!
I will certainly recommend it to others!

Voltage spikes, etc., can do nasty things. Again, maybe it doesn't matter but that is one test I will NOT be doing. Thanks for the info though.
Great feedback... please keep it up, especially the early adopters.... mid to long term use for key data & results.
