As many of you know there is only two ways to program the CIU when it looses it presets . The first is using the Fisker laptop either by a Fisker dealer or the few of us that have our own laptop and the capability to do it.
The second way is called a PUMA tool this tool is a stand alone tool which plugs into the OBD port and a thumb drive with software is inserted into the USB port . Basically itís plug and play I believe at this point Iím the only person who owns one of these tools I donít think Karma Automotive has one either and if they do they donít loan it out.
Iíve had this tool for a few years and on a regular basis I send it out to either upgrade the CIU or recover it. I do charge a fee for the use of the tool and for the most part itís usually a lot less then having to bring the car to the dealer.
I also have the BETA software which wasnít released by Fisker many of you have probably seen this software . The main screen is different and the colors are also different. Plus it has a bunch of other features I was thinking about offering this software with the use of my PUMA tool for a fee.
If anyone is interested in doing this you can email me direct at [email protected]
Also if you have lost your presets and the USB port still works in the console your CIU can be programmed. Make sure your CIU will play music using a thumb drive .
There are plenty of cars running this software for a couple of years without problems .Some of these customers live around the New Jersey/ PA area
