Hi all.

I've just got my hands on a power scooter that I wish to clean up and give to my parents, the only problem is it has been programmed for the previous owner to travel at less then walking pace.

Thanks to this forum, I've been able to make the cable, which I have tested with the service version of the software and can read the S-Drive controller with no issues.

The question I have, and I hate doing this with my first post, but has anyone got a working link to a version of the software that will allow me to make changes?

Thanks in advance, Dave.

Have you looked in Windows Device manager.?

Has the FTDI driver installed correctly?.

Did you know that the COM Port number assigned by Windows to the lead MUST be between 1 & 8 inclusive as the programming software will ONLY work with those COM Port numbers.

Did YOU tell the software which COM Port number to use? ... the software will not find it for you.

Hi nSRaiden when u say u had to open your controller and solder a wire, what do I mean by this ?

I am having trouble with connecting to my s drive 200a as it does not seem to connect to the controller although the software recognises the cable and tries to send data.
would be good to know what you ment by soldering a wire in the controller.

thanks

Hi all, I’m new here (and to using a chair), but I’m looking to reprogram my golden compass sport, it uses a dynamic shark controller. From what I can tell Golden sold the Compass Sport and Compass TRO with the exact same motor but different top speeds, and I’m hoping to speed it up. Does anyone know where I can find a OEM dongle or emulator?

It is possible to reprogram and the board can help.
It may not however be possible to make it go faster it depends on whether it's programmed slower than it's MAX.

Any chance of a pic of the joystick or it's model number?

Also ..can you please add a general location to your profile.

Cheers Woody

Ah ..just had a look online at the Golden Compass SPORT ...it appears to have the newer LINX control system that I am not familiar with.

Welcome LadyJ,

Is this the chair you have?... http://www.1800wheelchair.com/product/g ... wer-chair/

Dynamic controllers can be re-programmed but I'll let others advise you on this. A MWD chair is ok for indoor use and shopping malls, you'd really need a RWD chair for outdoor use with bigger caster wheels. Enjoy your stay here and please fill in your location in your profile as this is an international forum. :thumbup: :wave:

LINX Software download.

https://dynamiccontrols.com/en/download ... setup-v301

You will however need a LiNX Access key / dongle....Note that these often come with the Access level built in.
DLX-HKEY01-A. (Distributor) & DLX-HKEY02-A. (Manufacturer) that the general public will not be able to buy over the counter ..but maybe obtainable under the counter.

If so, it may be easier. You will need a cable, and some software. See pm.

I was hoping that someone could kindly send me a link to where I might download the own version of the pc mobility programmer. I've been searching for awhile to avoid having to bother anyone. Any help in my search would be greatly appreciated. I already have a functioning cable and the dealer version.

Hello, I'm Jacopo and I've been trying to fix a powered wheelchair without success, for now. I've also been trying to find the software to diagnose the S Drive board of the wheelchair, also without success. Any help with that?

Which wheelchair/scooter ?

It may not be a programming issue.

This doesn't quite make sense - S-Drive is a scooter controller, as it only controls a single motor, not a chair controller which has to deal with dual motors.

Please post photos of the chair, so we can see what you are working on. In addition a photo of the joystick module will help us identify what control system you have.

Hi everyone, I've been given a Pilot+ 80amp unit which needs programming, does anyone have the correct OEM software for this model?

Thanks.
