GS-911 Diagnostic tool for BMW motorcycles

There has been a thread (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=189421) on this forum going for a while, about the Diagnostic tool we have just released for BMW motorcycles, and John asked me to move it here...

If you are interested, pls have a look at our pages on
http://www.hex.co.za/gs911

In summary, there are two models:
- one with USB only
- one with USB and Bluetooth
Besides the PC application that connects through the USB, there is a mobile version (Java), that runs on a mobile phone ...to make it as portable and compact as possible

The device reads the ECU information, reads Fault codes, and erases them.

For more information, have a look at the pdf brochure and the FAQs.

We recently got some reviews, you can have a look at:
http://www.r1200gs.info/misc/GS-911.html
and
http://www.f650.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=208128

cheers
Stephan

Being able to read and clear faults is kewl just by itself... But I figure these guys will add more features as time passes and these little units will probably become a 'must have item' for those of us who are gadget freaks. And being able to diagnose these complex systems, as they continue to age is quite reassuring as well.

Being self sufficient has always been a sought after goal of mine...

The online demo was aimed at the PC software - at least we can control the look and feel there... with the Jave midlets you are very much at the mercy of the specific Java VM, and it is greatly impacted by the screen size... my E70 has a 240x320 resolution, and I have some screen capturing software on it... will take some and create a quick demo... Will also do the same for a smaller sized phone... and would be cool if other people with other phones can do the same and send me some screenshots... will talk to the beta testers and see who has what phone...
Remeber your phone does not only need Bluetooth, but MUST be JSR-82 compliant... This means that the specific Java Virtual Machine runing on your phone, actually allows the app to access Bluetooth... have a read on our FAQ pages... I have a list of phone up there as well...

I also heard a rumor that some mobile operators have modified the Java VM which means you cannot run just any Java app.. it has to be signed by them... anyone know whether the rumor is true? and what Operators are doing this? .. sowe can get our app signed for the respective Operators...

Dunno - are there any of them that are JSR-82 compliant? If it is, it will work... I have 2 Beta testers that have Blackberries, and both dont work - are not JSR-82 compliant - the one chap has informed me that the development circles of the RIM devices are a-buzz and the rumor is that they will be releasing new Firmware to make the devices JSR-82 compliant... How true this is, or when... your guess is as good as mine...

However, why dont you check your device? We have a little midlet that you can download and install onto your moble device, and it will tell you whether it is JSR-82 comliant or not... you can either download it from or downloads page, or if your mobile device has connectivity, you can download it straight onto your device, by pointing your mobile device's browser to www.hex.co.za/gs911.wml

This is what we call our GS911Verifier... and all it does is test whether the JSRR-82 API exists in your Java VM... Once you press the [Test] buton, you will either get: "Your device is capable of running GS911!" or "Bluetooth API not available"... whichever one it is... please be sure to let me know so I can update the list on http://www.hex.co.za/gs911/jsr-82.html

cheers
Stephan

Fault code information

Ok where can I find more information on fault codes. The description on a couple of FC I have don't give me enough info to work on it.

One is an ABS fault saying that the front wheel is slipping?? And another on is a low positive voltage but the volts at the battery reads 13.8V

The service CD I have doesn't list any fault codes.

Stephan,
Received my GS911blu and it works great via USB connected to my PC. Is it possible to connect it via Bluetooth to my PC vs my Mobile device? I can see it via BT Device Discovery but don't think I am actually paired even though it goes through the process. Is there a specific PAIRing code for the GS911blu? Is there Serial Device support on the GS911blu?

Regards,
Dan
