Easimap 5 mapping software
 
This software is suitable for the older serial based ECUs, if you have a newer CAN based ECU you will need Easimap 6.
We would recommend that you only use a laptop/computer with a serial port which is fitted as standard when using our mapping leads or professional mapping kits, since you are likely to experience problems when using a USB to serial convertor. The main reason for this is that serial port technology is now very old & not supported by computer manufacturers, in addition every Window update appears to make the computers less compatible with such adaptors.

If you do have connection problems of this type, we would recommend you contact a computer expert for assistance as we cannot offer support for this issue because of the large variety of computer set-ups & operating systems that are available.

Unfortunately we had to stop producing the MBE967 a couple of years ago, although it was a very nice ECU, the components that were used to build it were becoming harder to find. Also serial technology has become obsolete as far as computer manufacturers were concerned quite sometime before this so now all our current ECUs use USB to CAN technology. We have one engineer at MBE whose main task is to try to keep up with the updates that Windows carry out on virtually a daily basis to make sure our current technology remains exactly that. Therefore it is impossible to make discontinued ECUs compatible with Window7/USB combination.

You can download & install the Easimap 5 software free of charge. When you connect to your ECU via the appropriate hardware (see below), once you have powered the ECU up, Easimap will then identify the ECU & software version you have & automatically select matching files. Before progressing any further, we advise you to read the comprehensive help file within Easimap. We recommend you make a copy of all the data within your ECU, before attempting any modifications.
 
Easimap 5 requires Windows 98, 2000, XP or Vista to run.

Serial type: MBE941 & 967 software version 460 onwards & MBE970 ECUs
 
IMPORTANT NOTE:
All serial type ECUs must only be linked to your computer using either a SBD mapping lead or a lead manufactured exactly to the details shown below.
DO NOT USE A STANDARD SERIAL LEAD AS THIS COULD CORRUPT YOUR MAPS/PROGRAM, DAMAGE THE ECU OR EVEN THE LAPTOP.

The Baud rate on Easimap 5 automatically varies according to what it is able to communicate at. If you are having a real problem with your USB to serial convertor, it is possible within the software to slow the Baud rate right down manually, however the problem may be that your USB to serial convertor is not compatible with your computer. We normally use a Targus or Belkin for our Dell computers, but this doesn't mean to say that either of these will be suitable for yours. It appears to be that each computer seems to be fussy & you will need to find a converter that suits your own brand.
