email fred...he's pretty fast response. I believe there's a USB cable needed.

Infact....i need to get off my butt and have him re-vin and re-tune my xcal2 for my truck.

You need to use a USB cable that can be bought at wal-mart or radio shack.
Then load the "live link" software onto your computer.

Hey Rich or anyone.......just curious.

Can everything be changed(vin and tunes) via my computer from somebody like Rogue or Bama? No sending the unit in, etc?

Thanks.

Its a tuner. Sort of what is said a couple posts up, did you even take half a second to try figuring it out without searching by chance?
