Released this week is a new version of the shiftlight firmware and the companion PC program. This adds new templates for BMW E46, Emerald K6, and CANbus-equipped Imprezas allowing the shift light to be directly connected to the OEM CANbus (via OBD-II connector, for example).
To do this, support for “29 bit Extended CAN 2.0B” has been added, as well as the ability to “scale” the received CAN data. This means the unit can now be configured to work with pretty much any OEM CANbus system where the RPM data CAN ID’s are known, or can be found.
All units shipped from now on will have this version of firmware as standard.
Existing units can be upgraded but will need to be returned to the factory for this to be done.
