The first lesson here is not to listen to idiots on forums!!!!!!!!!!
I have read on forums its is illegal to have BUDS Diagnostics
all this started with the the MPI (Multi Protocol Interface) in 2000 that was LEASED to the dealers and NOT sold to them , , this whole "illegal' thing stems from individuals "obtaining” MPI units , they must have been stolen or purchased from a dealer who was not supposed to sell them , they are still the property of BRP as they were LEASED to the dealer!!!, even if you get hold of an MPI-1 it is useless unless you get our keys to unlock it!!
Our MPI-2 units are Commercially available units and ARE NOT the property if BRP in any way
How do we update the system
for purchasers of our systems we allow access to our FTP site containing a huge selection material!! , EVERY BUDS program released so far , almost every workshop manual and dozens of PDI & Bulliten files!!
BRP dealers have the luxury of connecting up to "
BOSSWEB' ,this is BRP's dealer only site where they can download instantly all the very latest "patches' and software updates they need. Unfortunatley we can not access this site!!!. this is no real problem for us!! , when BRP release a new copy of the BUDS program it also comes with all the latest updates included!! , seeing as BRP release a new program every 6-9 months we are only ever at maximum 6-9 months behind the dealers, so far evey update required for Brand new models we have been able to supply NO PROBLEM!!
What are these "Keys" or access codes that we need??
Keys/codes are required to "unlock' the BUDS program , BRP requires that dealers unlock their diagnostic system every year , this is done deliberatly by BRP to control the dealer and is supposedly to make the system obsolete should it fall into the "wrong hands”. BRP also control the dealer by only giving "Licence keys' wich unlock the part of the program that relates to the product they are allowed to sell/service , for example a Seadoo dealer cannot service a Can Am ATV, his system will not communicate with it!!
We can supply Keys for ALL BRP products!!! , we can supply individual dealer keys depending on what you need to work on or an "All Products” package , these keys give you Exactly the same diagnostic & fault finding ability as the dealer!!
we can also supply the Advanced 'megatech key' option!!!
Here is an example of keys:
4D12-F3F6-A08F-E1A0-7261 SeaDoo Key
9403-3ABF-A414-5432-865E Can Am Key
0F0E-38DE-5D5C-31D2-04F1 SkiDoo Key
3A14-83DD-F871-B3EE-18B1 Sport boat key
6053-159F-E334-48F1-354B Spyder Key
what is Megatech key
Megatech key is an advanced key wich opens up many features not available to the ordinary dealer!! , changing VIN numbers , disabling DESS theft systems and advanced diagnostics are just some of the things megatech opens that they don't want the ordinary dealer messing with!! megatech will also allow timing curve and rev limiter changes on some 2 stroke models
Megatech WILL NOT change fuel or timing maps on 4 tec applications nor will it change total run hours on any product.
Please see our webpage on the megatech licence key and its features , we also have some interesting screen shots on there and even some of you BRP dealers could learn something here!!!
