: Tuning: On the fly map changes - is it possible?

Wondering if any tuners off the ability to change maps instantly, for instance, while driving?

I happen to have a Nissan tuned via UpRev and this capability is offered. Through a combination of using cruise control keys I can switch between up to 5 maps on the fly (91 octane, 93 octane, security mode, stock, etc). Feels like you're putting a cheat code into the car every time.

So do any tuners, custom or otherwise offer this capability?

Not a huge deal, but it is nice to have. (Rather than say changing an ECU or having to plug a hand held in each time.)

Unfortunately not. It would be nice though. Kind of like the JB4 bmw tune

Closest I've seen are the handhelds that some tuners offer for our cars. You can switch between different tunes but not on the fly.
