GS-911 Tool... GROUP BUY - Who wants one.?

.
Well it seems there are plenty of you who already bought this tool.

But, for those of you ... who have NOT... We are checking to see if you want to do a Group Buy.?

If you look at it like this... just a few times having to bring it to your local dealer and PAY THEM to reset your Service Reminders and/or Read any fault codes, or Clear Any Fault Codes, etc...
Then you kinda already paid for the tool.

Ok, for you that do not know what it is....... Here is Details:


GS-911 is a Diagnostic Tool for BMW Motorcycles - a specialized tool consisting of an intelligent electronic interface in combination with Windows software. Also available is mobile software for most mobile phones, including Blackberry. This in particular makes the tool portable enough to take on any trip.

Read Diagnostic Fault Codes

This shows the Fault codes and text descriptions of the faults stored on the Electronic Control Unit.
Shows ECU information

See hardware and software versions, manufacturing dates, and other manufacturer related data.
Clears Diagnostic Fault Codes

Enables you to erase fault codes once the problem has been fixed.
Reset Service Reminders

Enables you to remove and set service reminders.
Recalibrate Idle Actuation

Reset the idle stepper actuators on R-series

The Windows PC software
works with both the GS-911usb and GS-911blu interfaces
This is the main software for the GS-911 product. It works with both the GS-911usb and GS-911blu hardware interfaces, and connects to the PC through USB. Advanced Windows users can us the Bluetooth connection (if they have one available on their PC/Laptop) to connect to the GS-911blu interface (instead of the USB), giving you the freedom of a wireless connection...

The Mobile software
works with only the GS-911blu interface There are several different versions of the Mobile software, intended to run on their respective different hardware platforms. These versions are:
Windows Mobile ( for all devices running Win Mobile OS, versions 5 & 6)
BlackBerry (for all BlackBerry devices)
Java Midlet ( for all JSR-82 compliant phones - these are your typical Nokia, Sony-Ericsson, Motorola, Samsung etc... (pretty much all that are not Win Mobile or Blackberry - and to test whether your mobile is JSR-82 compliant, there is a freely downloadable application to test your mobile phone/device)

Yes, the S1000RR is supported (for the PC) through their 2nd or 3rd latest beta version. I haven't been back on their website lately, but can tell you it works great for what it's designed to do. They do NOT have the Bluetooth version out yet (for the S1000RR), although the owner/designer tells me that they are testing it right now. So hopefully the Bluetooth version will be out soon in order to hook up to a Blackberry or similar phone. That way you can log diagnostic information (including lean angles) into your phone and view them later through their website or create your own table/graphic view.

I bought it primarily for checking codes, clearing codes, but more so to reset the "Service Indicator" light along with the "Next Service Date". I live far enough away from Dealers, that the logistics of getting down there for simple services isn't so feasible. I figured for the price of 2-3 oil changes, I've paid for the unit

Further information on what is supported for the S1000RR can be found here --> Function Chart &mdash; Hex code

If you have additional BMWs, many of them are supported by this tool.

So far I've used mine for:
  • Reseting the Service Light/Date A Few Times
  • Checking For Codes
  • Realized it throws an internal code when unhooking the exhaust valve on the outlet of the cat using this tool - nothing on the dash though and it's not resettable by this tool (or the dealer)
  • When I installed my PCV, I forgot to connect back the TPS (throttle postiion sensor) and starting the bike was a no-go... it didn't like that too much. Hooked the GS-911 up and it showed an error for the TPS.. looked and sure enough I forgot to plug it back in.

Bluetooth is just a wireless delivery media. It's not responsible for lack of support. It's the app that lives on the Blackberry that doesn't supportthe "S" yet. I've been using my Blackberry to support my "K" bike for a couple of years via Bluetooth with no problems.

If we can get 5-10 we can knock off extra 10%

If we can break 10+ we can knock off extra 20%

It just comes down to looking at the future.. just like D said above..

"how much money am I going to spend... over the course of the next 1-2 years by having to bring my bike into the dealership all the time "

Vs.

Having this product, and doing it yourself.

AND how much is your time worth. Something NOT mentioned above.

Cause you know every visit to the dealer is at least 2-3 hrs of sitting around. Not to mention drive time to and from.

I would also be interested in the Bluetooth version, if it was to be released fairly soon ( might be worth the wait). A month or two for the latest version is not an onerous wait.
One other question is whether or not you can synch it to an Iphone at this time?
