Default SD card logging, alternative start/stop switch

If you're using SD card fast logging and you don't like using the defogger switch to trigger and stop the logging, there is an alternative. Personally, I don't like using the defogger as it pumps unnecessary current through the back window and if I really want to use it on the back window, I have to disconnect Tactrix so that I don't get extraneous logs on the SD card. For those of you with 08+ WRXs and STIs, there's a better way. Instead of the defogger, I decided to use the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel instead. The set button can act as a start and cancel button as stop. To pull this off, you have to change the logger configuration file and define a new way of starting and stopping the logger:

1. On the SD card, open LogCfg.txt text file with an editor of choice.

2. Add the following sections to the file which define cruise control buttons and how to use their signals to start and stop the logger.

Code:
; cruise set signal
paramname = cruise_set_coast
paramid = 0x000121
databits = 1
offsetbits = 5
isvisible = 0

; cruise cancel signal
paramname = cruise_cancel
paramid = 0x0000D7
databits = 1
offsetbits = 0
isvisible = 0

; start action, 
conditionrpn = cruise_set_coast,1,==
action = start

; stop action
conditionrpn = cruise_cancel,1,==
action = stop
3. Comment out your current start and stop actions by placing semicolon in front of the section that defines your current start and stop actions. The logger will ignore them and if you ever decide to go back to using the defogger switch, you'll have an easy way to reference it.

Note, I tested this with latest EcuFlash version 1.44.3719.

How did I find these addresses? They come from RomRaider's logger definition file. I'm not sure if these switches vary between ROMs. Based on the definition file, they seem to be universal for all the ROMs.

Thanks that's really useful to learn, and agree this is a neater way of triggering the logging.
