Dongle Rental (second one)

I am no longer renting the dongle. It has been sold.

Good price, good process, well worth it if you haven't programmed your Helix yet.

Cheers and thanks for offering the service to the forum!

Thanks. It's definitely worth doing the programming. I don't think there has been one person who didn't think so.

I plan on going to EuEx if anyone needs to get programmed.

Stupid question, if the amp loses power (unplugged amp, unplugged battery ect), does it lose its programmed setting or does it still retain it?

I assume it would use flash memory and retain it, but has anyone tried it to confirm?

Thanks

Not a stupid question, but if I'm not mistaken the dongle loads the program and it sticks even if power is disconnected. YMMV, some odd circumstances like the cars battery being dead for 2 months COULD drain any charge the circuits hold if it stays connected.

I do know someone who has unplugged and moved a helix from one car to the other with no issues, if that's some real life experience to answer that question as well.

I've unplugged my battery on multiple occasions with no issues.

Shout out to crxgator

Really quick and easy. Instructions in the box. Only took about a week to go from being added to list to receiving dongle. Received $80 deposit back promptly.

Overall 5 star experience!

I second what CoopDelux said

Was psyched to get the programmer so quickly; was more than happy to get it out asap to the next guy. The list is moving a lot quicker than expected and crxgator was quick with instructions, refund, etc.
