    GIAC Bluetooth flashloader - Available now for use with Android phones.

    GIAC's Flashloader Wireless App (FWA) gives you smart phone access to cool car enthusiast calculators and tools. The Racer’s Toolbox is included with this free download.

    · Use info from your ¼ mile time slip, car weight, and track conditions to estimate HP.

    · Estimate your MPH at a specific RPM or RPM at a specific MPH using tire diameter and gear ratio.

    · Calculate your engine displacement using the bore, stroke, and number of cylinders.

    · Calculate compression ratio using the bore and stroke along with combustion chamber, head gasket and deck height volume.

    · Calculate the thickness of the head gasket spacer shim using starting compression, bore, stroke and desired lower compression.

    · Convert various units such as horsepower, kilowatt/hours, foot/lbs torque, PSI, bar, Celsius/ Fahrenheit and others.

    · View the FWA’s engine software switcher demo, if you haven’t already purchased GIAC switching software and a GIAC DME Transceiver Module (DTM).

    With the purchase of a GIAC DTM engine software switcher and compatible GIAC engine software, the FWA also gives you control of the GIAC-tuned software programs in your car's computer with a touch of a button. Potential software options include stock programming, performance programming for pump gas, performance programming for 100 octane gas, valet mode, and antitheft mode.

    GIAC DTM users can also download and install latest GIAC firmware updates, as they become available, to the GIAC DTM via button selection on the FWA.

    Additional accessories, such as the boost gauge feature, are in development.

    Australian RRP for DTM is $249inc GST. The DTM is compatible with all GIAC software for Seat/Skoda VAG/Audi, BMW and Porsche with the following exceptions: 2007 N54 BMW and 1997-1999 A4 applications. This product is not currently available for Bentley models.

    Its a handy way to switch between tunes for people optioning up stock, race, valet, etc modes. It isnt replacing the older cable style flash loader. Just another option
    This platform gives GIAC the ability to add extra functionality to the app as time goes by. I believe an iPhone version is currently in development too.

    As a side note I believe GIAC are the only company offering switching on the Golf R platform. All maps are stored in the ECU and switching between maps is performed within seconds.

    Can you switch while the car is running, or only before ignition like APR?

    Looks like a decent setup, although with that interface I'm concerned some might accidentally choose Performance instead of Pump.

    You can switch whilst the car is running although it is not recommended to use a hand held device whilst the car is in motion as this is illegal! The only mode you cannot switch to like this is kill. This is obviously so you dont die


    Im not sure what you mean by performance instead of pump? If you mean race mode. Not many people opt for this anyways as it is for use with race gas/water meth equipped cars. Even then the ECU still maintains all of the factory safety features so whilst not recommended there is no major concern.

    Yep, meant race. Mind likes playing tricks.

    Phone holder on dash solves that problem, no different to using the RNS510 touchscreen (although I'm sure some politician will have an argument there)

    Just a quick video showing the app in use. As you can see switching is virtually instant.
