"Oh Yeah! THANK YOU!!!!!!
I'll post my settings when I get them off of my other pc. This is great!"
"I got the programming cable and software from Forklift Electronics and
today, I successfully changed several values. It was a blast. My speedo was a little off..got that fixed using the GPS to compare. "
I turned on the master switch and found the right port and it worked perfectly! Basically, I didn't change the acceleration because
I overheat in the summer and don't really care if I make it up to 35 on the flats. In fact, there are no flats up here.
I am either chugging along between 15 & 25 uphill, or wanting to coast downhill a little faster
than 25 without having to constantly feather the accelerator. So I changed my rolling radius to 83.
And since I was overheating so much last summer, I changed my pedal down regen decel rate to 130. It is perfect now!!
Thanks for all your help!
Just a quick report... I got in, saved original settings, then changed MPH overspeed to 35 and saved as a test variable.
Ran the GEM up and down our hill and immediately got to 30 mph down a hill, over the 28 setting prior so
I know all is working well. All and all, from install to setting change and test, it took about 35 minutes.
Thanks again for your advice and help.
The Interface cable connects to your Laptop or PC and to the 12 Pin Data Plug Port on your T2 Controller.

DB9 Serial Port Computer Connector

PLEASE NOTE: This cable is a 9 Pin DB9 Serial Port Cable. Make sure your computer you plan to use has a True Serial Port.
The Serial Port on your computer will have 9 Male Pins, do not confuse this with the monitor connector.
I have used USB to Serial Converters, some work some don't, I have had good success with the
Hawking UC232S Make sure any you try has over 230kbps Data Transfer Rate.
I have also used the Cables Unlimited Model USB-2920, purchased from Tiger Direct for about $15.00
The USB-2920 was little harder to install.
Some have also used the SYBA PCMCIA Model SD-PCB-1S, with success, but I could not get it to work.
Some of the reviews also mentioned it worked well but very difficult to get operational.
