Im a very satisfied TigerTool V3.3 user who bought the bbfly-BF32301 interface as recommended by T800XC. Ive been following this topic just out of interest and can only express my admiration for T800XC in solving this issue. This software is provided completely free of charge and would appear to provide no reward for T800XC other than possibly the satisfaction of knowing that he is providing an extremely valuable resource for fellow Tiger owners.

So, T800XC, thank you so much for creating and maintaining TigerTool.  :047:

Works like a charm, service indicator reset and error codes checked, perfect.
Only thing is I thought I needed to reset both distance and date but you get an
Error once you reset distance. Maybe that is how it works on gen2 Tigers.

No doubt T800XC could confirm this but I think that Gen 1&2 Tigers only had the mileage reset and not a date reset. The reason that Gen 3 models now include the date reset is to alert owners to the need to have an annual service if they are covering less than 6000 miles per year. Presumably, lots of Gen 1&2 owners were neglecting to observe this service requirement.

I suspected as much.

Thx for all the help and attention in fixing our problem.
Cool that OBDLink now works with TigerTool as well.

Its time for the well deserved beer on the porch after
a good 9 hours in the saddle today.

You are a hero T800XC.

A massive THANK YOU to T800XC!  :037:
 
The link you sent me for TigerTool V3.3a worked perfectly on my Tiger 900 GT PRO using the OBDLink LX.

As posted by others previously I couldn't get past connecting the COM port with V3.3 but this version connected instantly.
The app is perfect for my needs, I updated the service kms and date clearing the service warning lights in about 30 secs.
I didn't need any of the other functions today but I had a quick flick through and everything appears to be working and logical to use.

So thankyou again for your generosity and smarts- very much appreciated. I can now perform all the servicing I care to do on my Tiger as I did for the past 13 years on my previous Yamaha FZ6s.

(The OBDLink LX is a cheaper version of the MX. As far as the Triumph is concerned they should work exactly the same. For memory you may need the MX if you use Apple rather than Android and the MX supports a few car manufacturer protocols that the LX doesn't. Their website can confirm this.)

New code (V3.3a) is done. I'll PM you a download link shortly.

V3.3 will remain on the forum as the default version for all users other than those with OBDLink or similar interfaces.


I am also using an OBDLink LX.
Would it be possible to have the correct version in Mp?
Thank you . . .

I'll send you a link in the morning. I'm a few sheets to the wind at the moment. Too much cider for a Sunday afternoon!

Having looked closely again at the responses posted above I've found the problem and it's not the speed of the response, it's the message itself.

When checking for initial comms from the interface TigerTool checks for the ELM327 ID string. I mistakenly assumed the string length was always the same, but it's not!

Cloned ELM327 chips tend to report V1.5 which is a nonexistent version of the ELM firmware, or sometimes V2.1 but the ScanTool STN chip used in the OBDLink interfaces mimics the earlier ELM327 V1.4b firmware. It's the extra length that the 'b' character adds to the ID string that's causing the problem. A bit of a rookie oversight on my part but one that's very easy to fix.

In the short term I'll compile a modified debug version of 3.3 to address this for those using the OBDLink interfaces.

Hi Forum.

I just discovered a way to use the OBDLink MX+ with the normal version of TigerTool.
Based on the information from T800XC,  I changed the ID string on my OBDLink MX+ from ELM327 v1.4b to ELM327 v1.4, and the normal version of TigerTool worked perfectly.
To change the ID version of your OBDLink MX+, you will need a windows computer, with a putty or OBDWiz software installed (I used OBDWiz to make it simple).

After you are connected to the OBD Dongle, go to Diagnostics -> Console.

When there, run the following command (case sensitive):
STSATI ELM327 v1.4

Then, run the commands (case sensitive):
AT Z
AT I
AT D
AT RV


And you should have something like this:
AT Z:
ELM327 v1.4
AT I:
ELM327 v1.4
AT D:
OK
AT RV:
12.4V


After that, just connect the Tigertool (normal one) and you will see it connected to your ECU.

I hope it helps, and again thanks to T800XC for this amazing tool.

 :460:  Great report Max.  :028:

I don't yet have an OBDLink adaptor so I wasn't aware you could do that with them. The next release of TigerTool will have the permanent fix but your method is an ideal interim.
