The car does, but your phone needs to as well. Here's a partial list of phones with support, but you'll need to check with your phone manufacturer:

Let us know how it goes. I saw something about coding needed to keep it on once the car is moving.

I have my iPhone plugged in as my main phone use a nexus 5 for the JB4 app. The iPhone will not work with the otg cable. It has to use the Bluetooth. I may invest in the adapter down the road. As far as charging with the otg cable, som phones have the capability to do so. The nexus does not unless I root it and change the kernel. That will probably be my next step. I used this cable.

Ok Beta testers out there, my JB4 is going to be in tomorrow's (Saturday) mail and while I'm looking forward to the increase in power, I'm not looking forward to the multiple WOT runs where I live to fine tune the car. Can you guys provide some Map 6 (absolute) settings to give me a starting point? I know modifications and weather conditions will vary but I was hoping to get some input as to where to begin testing

It took me quite a while to get the JB1 to produce logs to my satisfaction. Does having more data to log and analyze make adjustments easier with the JB4?

My upgrade kit comes today. I'll probably leave it at map 2 since I don't think the roads will be in any condition for me to do data logging

Wasn't MAP 2 for additives added on top only? Or am I mistaken?

Well, for one you have timing and fuel trimming data. Those are important.

From George "Its additive based. 5.4 peak at the top."

That means needs to be combined wth ethanol blend no?

I don't believe so. Check his first dyno:

http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26382

"Map 2 yields 48whp and 60ft lbs on 91 on a stock car."

It's just an aggressive map.

Is map 2 adjustable at all like map 1 for JB1?

Getting quite a mixed message with map 2. But if someone used it with only 91 and stock....damn...

By that he meant if the value shown in the software under map 2 was an additive pressure to the base map settings or if it was an absolute value. Nothing to do with fuel additives/ethanol.

No, JB1 is one thing and JB4 another. With that being said, the only map which allows adjustability is map6 on the JB4. George already explain all of this on a JB4 dedicated thread.
