Default tactrix question!

Thinking of buying tactrix an sorry if this is a repost. But anyway when I bought my car I it was already on a dyno tune from tactrix by a local tuner. Basically my question is, is if I buy the tactrix unit, I just want the availability to read what my temps, etc. are reading an I am worried that if I plug it in to the obd port it will delete my already perfect tune.

So if that was difficult to understand lol basically all I wanna know is if I plug in the tactrix unit an hook it up to my laptop JUST TO DATALOG will it delete my tune that I am currently on?

An if all I wanna do it data log whats the exact steps I need to take as far as everything

your tune won't be deleted unless you reflash it with another one.

the datalog process is usually

1. plug in tactrix cable (to the car and computer, of course)
2. open romraider logger on your laptop
3. select which parameters you wish to log
4. log until your hearts content.

You will need romraider logger on a lap top or netbook. You will also need ecuflash as it contains the driver necessary to make the connection between you lap top and the car's ecu. It takes a little to get it set up right. Don't worry about inadvertently losing your tune. "Flashing" or overwriting requires extra steps and not possible with romraider logger program. Since you just got tuned ask your tuner to help[ you get set up if you have any problems.

good luck
