Even of the android-based phones, only a few of them support this feature, and of those that do, only 1 or 2 support it out of the box from the carrier and/or vendor.

I have an android phone that can be a usb host, but it's not supported by the vendor/carrier. It requires hacking (i.e. rooting) the OS and, at this point, custom soldering your own connector. Obviously this wouldn't be very viable for everyone as it would void your phone's warranty.

So, while I also would like the ability to program my Tekin from my phone, everyone needs to understand the limitations are most likely within the phones themselves and not necessarily with Tekin's ability or desire to support this functionality.

My advise is to spend a few dollars and purchase yourself a netbook, even a used one will do. Netbooks tend to be just as cheap, if not cheaper, than your standard smart phone and can run the Hotwire software. I know some would say that they don't want to buy something new, but at the same time, if I told you phone XYZ supported this functionality, you would probably go buy one right now... so think about it a bit.
I agree with what you are saying about limitations, but according to Speed Passion they are almost finished with an iPhone app for programming their GT line of speed controls.

FYI it is all based on Ohm's law.

And shouldn't your post be on a thread related to Novak equipment?

I think apple only recently (in the last month) opened up what developers were allowed to do with the iPhone. Probably a reaction to the impending release of windows based smart phones.

I think there are still restrictions with what developers are allowed to do (unless you want to jail break your phone). Just because an iPhone might be able to do something, doesnt mean apple will let you write an app to do it (yeah its pretty dumb a##).

That iRig thing looks like it has nothing to do with USB functionality.

RS is fine for 17.5T. You only need RS Pro if you want to run mod.

Hi All, i am new to elettic ( been racing nitro for ages ) and trying to get my head arround all the tuning options of these ESC. I have done a lot of reading but i still dont know where to start! On the tekin web site there are not many set ups with the 208 software.

Anyway I have a T3, Tekin Rs and tekin 10.5 ( 208 software).

I started with a FDR 7.5 no motor timing.
ESC timing advance 10 ( started form 70 but the bottom was really poor and went down to 10 ) - Why most of the set ups have N/A on this?
Boost 40 - 5000-20000rpm
Turbo 14 - .2delay.

I understand that all this depends form the track layout but I am wondering if i am copletly out or this is a decent starting point.
Thanks!
