Smarty Touch Upgrade Question: Return to stock or not??

Recommended Posts

I am currently running firmware: 1.00.12 and Tuning database: DRST002A on my smarty touch. I noticed that the current version available for download is Firmware: 1.0.21 Tuning database: DRST003F. I would like to update my smarty touch and I'm pretty sure i have the upgrade process figured out from reading around. Seems pretty simple to do. My one question i have is do i need to return the truck to stock before updating the smarty touch especially since the tuning database will be updated?

 

I know with my old S-06 i needed to, just not sure if that still applies to the Smarty Touch

I have an 2006

 

Thanks

Dan

Hi Dan! No need to tune back to stock before updating the SD card on the Touch. No need to go back to stock before updating our handhelds either.

 

You are good to go.

 

Thank you!

Brian,

Thank you for the quick response. Curiosity question then, is there no difference in the tunes (as they apply to my 2006) between the DRST002A and DRST003F tuning databases? My thought process was if there is a difference in the written tunes then you would have to re program the truck for the new tunes to be written to the trucks ECM.

 

Thanks for the time in answering my questions,

Dan

Each sw upgrade for a specific model has improvements in the differences. The new software writes 'over' the old sw that is written into the ecm previously.

 

Thank you!
