SIMON 3 - The Ultimate BMW Software Tuning Programmer

by: Active Autowerke




INTRODUCING THE SIMON 3 BMW TUNING PROGRAMMER

Lower Price – Better Value – Zero Hassle

Before the SIMON 3, tuning your BMW required you to send your ECU to a BMW tuner - like Active Autowerke - to have the software modified/uploaded by expert engineers. The ECU would then be re-packaged and shipped back to you for re-installation. In short, it was AT MINIMUM a 3-day fiasco.

That didn't sit well with us. Fortunately, the days of helplessly waiting on your ECU to return are long gone - thanks to the newly released, all-new SIMON 3. The SIMON 3 gives control back to the user; to upload, update, and upgrade your BMW's software tuning. All you need is the SIMON 3, a laptop running Windows, and access to the internet for e-mail correspondence!

SIMON 3 KEY FEATURES:

  • Downtime is eliminated
  • Married to initial vehicle VIN 
  • More efficient & affordable than previous generations
  • Provides complete control over engine and some gearbox functions
  • Multiple maps included at minimal cost
  • Diagnose & clear all engine and transmission error codes
  • Easily reset - eliminates loss of customized tune after BMW dealer re-flash
  • Erases current DME “adaptions” (DME will now read and adapt strictly from new tuning maps)

WHY THE SIMON 3?

Flexibility

With past tuning tools, resetting the device after being flashed back to OEM-specs by a BMW dealer became quite problematic. A manufacturer software issue locked the devices into “Write Mode” after the first tune was written to the vehicle. Getting the tool back into the proper "Read Mode" was a complicated endeavor; we knew our next programming tool would have to have the flexibility to ALWAYS READ AND WRITE AT ANY TIME.

Value

Compared to the G5, the SIMON 3 has a much more consumer-friendly price, making it much easier to “bundle” the tool with a file tune or two (or three!) for your BMW. This simply wasn’t possible with the G5 as it proved too costly for our consumers.

Advanced Technology

After flashing a tune, error codes are commonly generated in both Automatic transmissions and DCT gearboxes. Unlike the G5 and SIMON 1, the SIMON 3 Remote Tuning Cable provides the ability to erase these error codes.
