Autologic is completely different.

Autologic can perform updates just like the ISIS system, BMW's software suite that includes a a terminal, mainframe computer, MOST bus adaptor, ODB etc etc. It can do updates to every part of hte BMW - the coding can only do updates through ODB, which isn't all modules.

Additionally, because the autologic has the fibre adaptor it can do things much faster.

It can now also do ECU tuning even for MSD80 and MSD81 DME's. Something the coding cable cannot do.

The autologic can also do SOME coding, just a few functions as determined by Autologic in the USA. Most of the coding options on the spreadsheet CANNOT be done.

Therefore, custom coding, hex editing, custom flashes and custom programming cannot be completed as it is a closed system.

In fact, the Autologic is very heavily dependent on being networked, as it does not store most of the files, updates and software on its system for very long.

This can mean updating a car can take a very long time as it has to download the correct files each time before an update.

It is a little bit like hte GT1, BMW's previous software for workshops.


Please correct me if I am wrong in any aspect Peter
