Programmer Question

I originally posted this in the build forum... Should have been here...

When I first started my build, I had planned on an AEV ProCal for when tire sizes started to increase. I also wanted a backup cam. At that time, I purchased a MyGig Lockpick Air for the backup cam and other goodies....

I am now starting to look at programmers and starting to dig deeper into them... Just looking for some thoughts.

1.) Should I sell the lockpick and go with an all in 1 (Superchips TrailDash2)
.... This would also allow me to replace the A Pillar pod for switches ....

2.) Stick with the original plan of the ProCal and keep everything separate

3.) Other thoughts???

I know that this would be the best place to see what y'all think...

Thanks!!!

Traildash2 is amazing. I would recommend that and a Procal. The Procal has a few neat tricks in it as well.

What can you do with the ProCal that the Traildash2 can't?

What year is your Jeep? The traildash 2 is awesome. You can hook up your backup camera right to it and your switches. And it is a lot more user friendly then the procal. If you have any questions feel free to contact us.

It is a 2016 JKU Rubicon Hard Rock.

I am curious as to what the ProCal can do that the Traildash2 can't..

I am also a little scared to put all my eggs in one basket... If the TD2 goes out, my backup cam wouldn't work.... neither would my lightbar/cubes.

Not sure what would be best

The My Gig lock pick lets you have three cameras, don't know about the Traildash2 camera options. Along with a back up camera I have a camera that I can mount on the brush guard when off road to see below the hood. It comes in real handy when approaching a ravine or going up a very steep grade that you only see sky through the windshield. Most security cameras work on 12 volts dc so there are a lot of options.

I currently have the lockpick air and according to the paperwork.. 5 cameras can be hooked up to it. I am only using the backup camera for now.

nwbronco suggested getting the TD2 and the ProCal. Just wondering why I would need the ProCal in addition to the TD2..

You wouldnt need both. The TD2 will do a lot more then the procal.

What more functionality does the TD2 for 09' rubicon have that the flashpaq doesn't ? I just bought the flashpaq, but thinking I should have gotten TD2. Do have to buy a separate harness to monitor engine vitals?

In my case. I had enough of the Rubicon electronic swaybar idiot light and the reliability of it working. I went to stock swaybar and JKS quick disco links. The Procal allows for disabling the warning when the electrics are disconnected.
Also, I wanted to disable the TPMS. Both of these functions are not possible in the TD2. Plus, I can use the procal and then throw it in the console box. The TD2 has the displays and good info. But, it need to stay connected to te OBD-II port.

I hit the wall a few times with the TD2 on these functions. Too easy to grab the procal and make the changes. Then plug the TD2 back in. This worked out well for me. While it may not be necessary for most.

You can add some things to TD2, a back up cam, thermometer, you can add switch relays so you can turn on/off your off road lights, or compressor.... etc.

Programmer Question

@Bob Sanders are you happy with yours, knowing I have the flashpaq? I really was curious about vital readings. Would be nice to use lockers from the screen , but just as easy to use the utilitarian factory switch. I don't do any hardcore off-roading, I'm just nosy and would like to monitor engine vitals on the fly. I also worry about the constant OBD connection. I'm not a big guy, but if their is something that's NOT supposed to be bumped, I'll somehow do just that, or is that not a problem with the TD2? As the flashpaq all but tells you to not look at it wrong while doing file transfers.

Yes.
I actually started with flashcal. Bought it mainly to control the lockers in 4hi. But you have to keep it plugged in when controlling lockers which I didn't know at the time. I figured if I have to keep it plugged in the I may as well make it permanent with the TD2.

I haven't been bold enough to try any of the tunes as of yet but maybe when I get board...

No issues with the permanent obd connections so far. In fact I now have 2 permanent connections... one from the TD2 and one from my Kenwood head unit. I had to cut the plug on the kenwood obd connect and wire it directly to the back of the obd connect so I could get the td2 plug on.... but it's all good.

@Bob Sanders I installed the 87 tune and i have to say,I'm quite Impressed with the throttle response. Going to try a peddle commander next and see if that makes a difference.
