Because it is not user programmable - web based programming only.

Also looks a little like kitchen ware. And a bit plasticky and cheap. Doesent compare to r-net quality wise. And only your "expert" clinician can program it...

It is user programmable with the correct dongle. Oem is very hard to get.

It's not Web based either, app for ios or Windows pc software.

OEM with extreme difficulty. I have a spare dealer level key if anyone could work out a hack.

Thats beyond me. Also may not be poss. Can you get the OEM software anywhere?

It should be possible to write OEM modded files to the DEALER dongle/system. As per R-Net.

Software is the same. Access key sets whatever parameters are visible.

Programmers like to add a layer of something on the top of existing code rather than write a whole brand new system. My feeling with the new dongles is all they have done is replace the wired connection with Bluetooth. Wouldn't surprise me if the way around that turned out to be super simple.

That's what I was saying. Wouldn't surprise me if the hack to program one of these chairs is to use the old wired connection instead.

Who cares about any of this?
Than there's this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7aGnzg4ki8
Some algorithm will constantly mess with your motor compensation settings? What could go wrong?

Not me. Also it looks like a nighmere of hidden screens and stuff. And non of the interesting drive stuff... Gimme my R-net/laptop anyday over that phone garbage. And OEM not dealer dumbed down basic settings.

Its not so much what could go wrong. In principle its a good idea.
But I have 3 profiles, and deleted all the rest...
1. EMPTY CHAIR. Has compensation lowered by 15% so its not jerky, and torque set low, and max speed is the MINIMUMS of the other profile so only 1 slow speed.
2. My normal profile. Has compensation set how I like it to feel. And all turn accelerations and decelerations set to 100 like every profile here.
3. My normal profile, but compensation increased because battery is flagging... This is set in profiled motor load compensation.

I want control.

Hi Everyone,

Its good to finally contribute to this great community. I have managed to take the Key apart and to snap some photos of the innards. I am hoping that between us all, we Can Create our own firmware version of the program with OEM access levels. Its possible if we are able to dump the firmware in the computer and find a way to read it and create an update for the key. I know that its never as simple as I am describing. Its worth a try I thing ;) Here are some of the photos that I have taken. I can Only add a max of 3 files.

I will add more if I can get some more directions of the kind of photos that is required. I used an endoscope camera to get these pictures. It was not easy for me. I know that the pictures are not the best. Looking forward to hearing from you all.

What is needed is in firmware/software somewhere to unlock the OEM version. Such as a leaked key.

Or some software or firmware hack.

And thats beyond my ability.
