Does anyone have the new Worldwide ? we just got one installed .Would not calibrate , had to call the techs back .The drove from the Orange county to here , luckily they were able to get it to calibrate so that the BAR would pass us and get us in the system . Thankfully the rep 1 was understanding and kind . Tried to do a smog , more problems . Tech coming tomorrow again .
My buddy got the new WW installed running version v1707. This version has a network card installed in lieu of a modem. This software is not ready for prime time. There is no option on the screen to select obd2. Only direct, contact and non-contact! He called WW and is waiting for a return call. My software version is v1401 and is fine. V1707 requires a 30 minute warmup on a reboot. V1401 does not require a warmup on a reboot! At the present time he can smog 1995 and older. WW called and tech forget to turn on obd2 module!
I have accumalated about 5 aborts and 2 restarts within this first week of having the WW up and running .Be careful with the prompts .For instance there are two screens that ask you if the vehicle is a 4 wd . Do NOt hit yes on the 2nd prompt for that , it will abort you ! The margin to get the car stabilized is considerably lower , feels like 10 seconds instead of the 20 I used to get with the ESP . Good luck and happy smogging ! PS it is considerably faster though , 8 mins for 96 and newer .
Iha, it is a network card. It is wireless . Very fast speed . NO modem . But i have not figured out YET how to shut it down without that PESKY 30 minute warm up ! I am still looking in to it .Please tell me if you figure it out .
WW users, IHA try control alt delete . bypass 30 min warm up (?) I can't yet , still calibrating and waiting for the initial warm up . Try it in training mode . I know i am will get back to you on my findings .
Well thanks for NOT sharing ! you could send us the info to our emails if your heart feels so inclined ?
I just tried a training mode test , went to control-alt-delete ,went to main screen and entered cancel .When i got back to the smog screen , 30 MINUTE WARM UP ! wtH?I am going to have become the master at guessing who's throttle cable linkage is lose , who's tranny is acting up , who's radiator is going to blow , etc , to prevent the amount of aborts and 30 minute warm up this 20k machine is giving me . insert a turd here .
If you are not familiar with the machine or if there is any problem beyond your capacity to continue the test ,don't abort it just push the Computer/ Reset button on the back so you don't get dinged by the BAR.
BAR don't care about the abort reason,protect yourself,and merry Christmas to you too.
