V2.20 software now takes advantage of the latest Syvecs S6 firmware that allows full GPS information to be sent, alongside the existing “slave protocol”.
This allows the MEU to not only provide its 4 additional inputs, plus the EGT/Bosch lambda/barometric pressure data, and an H-bridge driver output, but also all the GPS data – latitude/longitude/course/speed/satellite info etc. And all at a 50Hz update rate.
The GPS protocol used also includes all motion sensor data (lateral/longitudinal/vertical G and yaw/pitch/roll).
The MEU also has GPS beacon functionality that sends a “blip” to the ECU when you drive through the configured beacon zone. Useful for lap timing.
The upgrade also, at long last, adds support for “VR” speed sensors (e.g. typical 2-wire ABS sensors) as well as Hall Effect types. No hardware mods needed – just a firmware update.
All in all, this makes for an extremely powerful combination of functionality, in a highly cost-effective package.
For a limited period, our 8-LED RGB high brightness shiftlight is on sale – £48 off (including VAT) the usual list price!!
We hope you like our newly designed website. If something isn’t working or doesn’t seem right to you, we’d appreciate you letting us know!
Please note that we are currently away, exhibiting at the 2017 Autosport Show.
If you’re attending the Engineering Show this Thursday or Friday, please do come and say hello.
Also, please be aware that any orders placed will not be shipped until week commencing January 16th.
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.
Our new Syvecs Mini Expansion Unit is now shipping.

We have plenty of stocks of this great device, ready to ship as soon as the final few software enhancements are added.
The formal release date will be announced here soon!
We’re currently away and any orders placed can’t be fulfilled until week commencing 4th July 2016. Sorry for any inconvenience.
We won’t be at Autosport this year, sorry if you were hoping to come and see us.
Our office will also be unmanned from 21st January to 1st February as we’re away doing a full Impreza race car wiring job (EG33, sequential box, S8, PDU, GPS etc.) – we will monitor emails and voicemail regularly but we won’t be able to deliver any orders during that time.
