JB3 Technical Help

Hello

I have a JB3 Pinout version with a flash burner and an extra chip. I have the USB cable for the flash burner but not for the JB.

I'm looking for someone in the SoCaL area to help me update my JB3 with the latest firmware, maps, etc

I apologize for my ignorance but I am new to the Euro/BMW scene and I really dont want to mess anything up.

Any help will be greatly appreciate

You can upgrade the JB3 using the USB cable. You don't need the flash burner.

You should upgrade to the JB4, it is just all around better.

does the control box on your jb3 have a male serial port on it?

The older JB3 doesn't have it, and I think that kind needs a chip burner, but the kind with a serial port can be updated with a serial-to-USB cord.
