Free to Use Nex IQ 2 USB

I have a knockoff Nex IQ 2 USB that I used to modify some of my buses computer settings ... enabled cruise control, increased top speed, etc. This community has been very good to me and I'd like to let others use the device for free. If you're an experienced or well established member on the Skoolie forums and you're okay with paying shipping both ways, leave a response below. I'd be happy to lend it out. This is on the honor system. They go for like $700 with the knock offs going for $300, and while I know most of us can't afford this level of luxury we should still be able to modify the computers without driving into a dealership. Thanks ...

For me, removing the speed limiter was a big one. My bus wouldn't budge past 55mph and that sucked in the mountains or hilly terrain when I was going downhill and want to build momentum for the next hill. The engine would just cut out after I got to the top. I also was able to enable cruise control, which the school district had disabled by default. You can't increase HP or doing anything too drastic.

Very cool, Let me ask a newby question if that device could also work with changing the speed limit and enabling cruise control on a mercedes mbe906 engine?
Coming onto cruise controls. our bus would need to have the wiring for switches installed . Is that hardwired to the ECM/?

Thank you J

Christopher turned on my cruise control and raised my speed limiter last time I saw him, he's such a pal!

The device is the interface that allows the laptop to interpret the incoming data-stream.

To make changes to a specific brand, you need the software for that engine.

If Mercedes have made that available, or if it has been cracked, then yes.

Do you all have any idea what may be out there as far as software for the Cummins ISB/ISC?

twigg has it right.. the NexiQ is just the hardware device.. Most all Medium / Heavy duty software programs support the NexiQ as a valid RP1210 device for talking to the vehicle.. Navistar is nice and gives away the old version of their software used to change parameters on most of our old busses.. exverything up through 2006..

I dont know about cummins or freightliner / Cat / Mbe if they have free versions of their software or not..

Yes but the nexiq2 usb knockoff like on ebay for $216 free ship has the dddl software , and about all others included.
So I guess the question to warewolff is what software he has with the hardware.


later J
