Like the system so far...I hear the newest versions will be user programmable.

Challenge for me is finding grounding points...

James:

You have our PDM60 Wiring Kit, right? The ground bus cable will accommodate 8 ring lugs for ground connections, without having a mess on the negative battery terminal. We started including the ring lugs after you purchased the kit, I think.

Is there something we can help with?

I do have that, thanks...waiting on that part of the install and thinking about where to locate that...toward the front or back...I find myself wishing I had two convenient frame grounding points; one up in the beak area, one mid-bike or further back.

Perhaps something for RocketMoto to consider for future R+D continuing to make the PDM60 a turn key setup would be to locate a couple of frame-based ground locations and include two shorter grounding posts to connect to those frame points...perhaps even replacement bolts for those grounding points, if needed. That would take the battery out of the equation, reducing clutter there.

Just thinking out of the box...what helps you helps us ;>

Is the ground cable available separately without the whole wiring kit?

We don't offer them separately. We have these longer cables custom made for us by Powerlet and dedicate them to complete kits.

I don't have a fraction of the wiring experience that others do here, but it might be a useful option to have separately as well? I could envision someone with a lot of electronics wanting two ground units; one toward the beak, the other under the seat somewhere...?

This looks like a great unit, but I have a few questions regarding the programmability.

Is the software available in a Mac version? If it's PC only, what version of windows does it support?

I have old PC laptops (boat anchor) that I use for testing, but my primary machine - the one I carry with me on the bike - is MacBook Air with the latest version of the OS (10.8.5).

If a Mac version is not available, are you willing to share the API hooks and ducumentation so I can write my own iPhone/iPad app (I'm a professional developer)? I'd be interested in building both a Apple and Android version of the app. A bluetooth module would be a great addition to your unit.

Certainly works with XP thru Win7. No Mac version . We program these with Macs running Windoze under Parallels Desktop, no problem.

Contact Rowe Electronics, directly, to see about offering up an API.

Thanks,

Good to know it works on Parallels, it's not uncommon to run into driver issues when running on a VM.

Its 2014 and i wanted to enquire if we can program the PDM60 personally?

I remember seeing a video where the person installs some software and uses a "custom" usb cable to access the parameters and change them.

So,
Is it possible now?


*edit*
I found the below URL explaining how to program the PDM60 using your personal computer
http://pdm60.com/wp-content/uploads/...ual-091613.pdf

Can anybody confirm if this works?

Yes - it works. The programming cable is included with the PDM60, and the dashboard software is downloadable.
