Tech Article: How to Setup and Datalog with CROME PRO
 
First, make sure you have the PRO or DEALER version of Crome…you have to purchase this from the TuneWithCrome.com website or from my website.  Receive your Registration String and enable the datalogging features in your version.  Once this step is complete your “About Crome” screen will look like mine.

Next, install the USB Device Drivers for the datalogging cable you are using.  Hondalog, Hulog and my Data Cable all use the same FTDI Drivers, you can find them at the FTDI website here:

User the NEWER, Auto Installing Drivers FIRST, before you plug in your USB cable, find that auto installing driver here:
http://www.moates.net/zips/CDM_2_04_16.exe

Use the OLDER, Auto Installing Drivers if you have problems with the above:
http://www.moates.net/zips/CDM_Setup.exe

Install the drivers and make sure they INSTALL CORRECTLY before going any further.

Plug in your USB Cable, and watch as Windows automatically installs the Drivers.




Verify they are correctly installed by going into your device manager and seeing the driver setup as a COM PORT


Note this COM PORT #, Write it Down for LATER.

Next, go into that COM Port within your Device Manager and check all settings, go into the ADVANCED Properties.
Make sure the Latency Timer is set to “1” as it normally defaults to 16.  This should be the only change you have to make.  Click ok and close out of all of those open windows.


This will then show you what COM PORT # your Burner has been Assigned.  You can see on my computer it is COM5


Right Click on the COM, and choose PROPERTIES.  Click on the PORT SETTINGS Tab and choose ADVANCED which opens this screen.


Make sure the LATENCY TIMER is set to “1” instead of 16 which is the default value.

Now, ok or close all of those windows and unplug the device and then plug it back in.  This resets everything and as long as you plug it back into the same USB spot, it will always assign the same COM Port #

Now go back into Crome.  Upload your ready to go file to the Ostrich, make sure datalogging is added.  If you are using a chip, make sure to burn the chip with datalogging added.  Also make sure checksum is removed, and “J12” is removed in the ECU if you are using a USDM ECU, and if you are using a JDM ECU make sure J4 is removed.
