Default Advance Timining With Android App

I was searching Maxima.org and came across this. It was in the 5th gen section but says it works for 6th gens. Has anybody tried this?

Advance timing with android phone? - Maxima Forums

Cool. I should be able to post an update tomorrow. I hope I can do it within the trial period. If it doesn't work not sure if the asp is better than torque pro.

Gonna try to do this tonight. Reading the instructions and it says the engine needs to be at normal operating temps. Wanna have all the steps ready to do this in case it doesn't work, I can refund the purchase.

Default Re: Advance Timining With Android App

Yup. That is why I want to know exactly what I am doing. I don't mind paying for an app that works but fifteen minutes simply isn't long enough in many cases. Torque does everything else this app appears to do so I don't see a need to own both without a significant benefit.

Default Re: Advance Timining With Android App

So if I follow the instructions I can't complete this and test within the refund time so I decided to email the developers and ask if it was possible to trial this another way. I explained this is a feature that many will want to have if possible and I can certainly help spread the word if it operates as described. Hopefully they send good news back.

Filled her up with shell 93 and advanced the timing. It held and I didn't have to do any re learns at all, it is steady at around 650-700 which was where it was at before adjustment. You can adjust it -2/+2. I didn't notice any difference in the driving of it though.

in his description it says up to 07 but I think the gen 6.5 has to use a different program at the dealer so it may not work. You can always try and get in contact with him and see if you can test it and if he will refund you if it doesn't work. Google has a 15 minute refund thing but this could take longer than 15 minutes if you have difficulty.
