Thread: How to backup tune with the 3.5" touchscreen?

    Default How to backup tune with the 3.5" touchscreen?

    I'm trying to find instructions on how I can backup my tune/settings. I've driven my car long enough and have made a few minor tweaks that I would like to backup my tune and learn how to reload it if necessary. I only have the 3.5" touchscreen and not using a laptop. I've searched online and looked over some Sniper EFI documents, but haven't found anything that makes any sense. I'm assuming that if I had to disconnect my battery to do some work on my car that it wouldn't take long before the Sniper would loose it's information, and I would have to start the learning process over again. Anyone know where there are some step by step instructions on how to do this?

    Your "known to be good" Config File is stored in a folder on the SD card ("File", "ECU Globals"). I'll let a Sniper EFI user explain it in more detail.

    Page 73 of the main Sniper EFI Manual will show you how to download the Global Configuration to the SD card. This will create a backup of the calibration and store it on the SD card. Then it can be uploaded back into the throttle body whenever needed.

    Thanks, I looked up a manual online. I'd have to dig out the manual mine came with, but I'm pretty sure that was not included in my manual. I'm sure there have been some updates since I bought mine.

    Hi Caver, did you ever get it figured out? I can post up the sequence if that helps.
