I had a hell of a time with the cable. I bought a Lonelelc cable and everything but it wouldn't be detected in a 3 year old high-end gaming laptop I even reinstalled windows for fresh drivers just to be sure it wasn't a driver issue. Then I installed linux on the laptop, still no dice. The cable was detected fine in my desktop computer but it's big, heavy, and watercooled; too much of a PITA to move to the garage. On my wife's 13 year old macbook the cable was detected, but guzzidiag wouldn't run on such an old mac. Even the cable was detected on a Raspberry Pi before I realized Guzzidiag wouldn't run on ARM processors. Finally I bought a new cheap laptop for $300 and the cable worked perfectly.  :violent1:

But being pissed and wondering what the hell was going on I finally figured it out. The original laptop only had USB 3.1 ports, once I bought a cheap usb 2.0 hub and used that in between the Lonelec cable and the original laptop the cable was detected perfectly and worked great. USB is supposed to be backwards compatible but I guess for some things it's not.

Can someone tell me what the meaning of these two terms are regarding stepper function ?
No intention of being a smarty pants here, but does he mean “brake” ?
I understand it has been translated from an acknowledged genius in another language but “brake” would make some sense to me conceptually.

Not precisely sure but the throttle and rpm designated points on the fuel and ignition maps are known as "break points". So example, throttle angle break points horizontal and RPM vertical. So I would assume the stepper motor points are the same.

Thank you very much Phil.
I will try to get that into my head, so “break” is the correct term...
Good... :thumb:

Edit to keep the thread clean:

I was struggling to get GuzziDiag working on my MacBook Air (2014) running High Sierra 10.13.4

UPDATE: I got it working!

- I reinstalled the cable drivers that Beetle posted on page 6 of this thread.
- I moved the GuzziDiag app to the Applications folder
- I used v46 (I couldn't get v47 working)
- I restarted my computer a bunch.
- the read & write apps seemed to work from a separate folder outside of Applications but GuzziDiag wan't having it.

After a 30 min test ride:

- the throttle seems less jerky / on-off in the low and mid range
- I think it rolls through the shifts a bit smoother with maybe a bit less engine brake (which I like)
- the mid-range feels just a bit more robust
- there was a bit of surging in 5th gear at highway speeds that seems to be gone.
- I'm pleased overall!

Oh, it's a 2017 V7 Stone, all stock. I may change out the exhaust but I wanted to see if I could get the fuelling a bit better first.

Glad Beetle developed this stuff!

 Not too sure , but Windows based laptops seem to have a much higher success with Guzzidiag . Peter

When you store/copy a map from your bike (Norge) for safe keeping, once it’s tucked away into your computer does your bike still have a “map” in there or does it need the new one loaded ?

  Question is a bit of a problem for me , are you asking if there's still a map after you copy the original to your safe keeping place ?
   I installed a "Beetle" map in my 2018 Eldorado , right after I saved the original to my laptop . I can't say that I bothered to see
  if there was anything there (In the Guzzi CPU) before installing the new map ( that was my only aim in the first place ) . The instructions
  at the very beginning ( in his tutorial) are good and I hope you've gone over them a few times to prep you for the install , and yes ,the
  Eldorado is a happier bike . Peter

The map is still there on the ECU, all
You have done is make a copy to your laptop.

This is true and when you open Guzzidiag in the "ecu information" at the bottom l/h corner of the page you can see the ecu details and the "name" of the map installed. When you create/modify a map you can rename the map in the .bin file with Tunerpro and that will appear in the ecu information screen so you can recognise and keep track of what map you have fitted. All my maps are designated LPC#01, 02 etc so I can keep track of mine and others I have and the details of the map changes and individual maps is kept on my computer.
