Bareyb -Odometer is something that's on the LCD Display. If your Display isn't retaining settings that's probably a different issue. But yes, the firmware update on the Motor was a piece of cake. Cameron over at Falco was able to control my PC remotely (actually my Mac Laptop running Parallels) with "Team Viewer" and he downloaded the necessary files and installed them from his end. All I had to do was hook up the cable to the motor.
I also upgraded my Battery to the 48V version today, and I can really feel the difference. It has more power and it seems to have a quite a bit more range. I went to the Gym and back and still had all four LEDs lit up and it was still showing 48V (out of 51V at full charge). Used to drain well over half of the 36V. Of course that could be because I was running on Level 4 part of the time today, whereas with the 36V I was always at Level 5.
The great news is, it runs great. It n0w bypasses the Torque Sensor and keeps the motor powered on when you're riding at high speeds. It used to just kind of power on and off if you didn't pedal hard enough. So much improved there. I averaged about 35 mph on the Flats and hit an all time high of 41 mph today for a brief period with the wind at my back. It's definitely got smoother power delivery and I'm very happy with the result. I will not be needing to upgrade to the 750 watt kit after all.
Side note: LOVE the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires I put on today. They feel really grippy and they are supposed to be bomb proof. I went with a wider tire in the back to give the motor a little more air under it, so now it's kind of set up like a dragster.
Q) So you have the 48V battery with the 500W hub? I am considering that. It will get more power. Do you have any thermal cutbacks during warm weather? If I run too hard on hills, I get that after 5 miles or so.
Wow, the 48V will spin it up on hills, yes?
About the firmware, do you have a throttle? I know what you mean by the motor staying on and not cutting out too soon. Mine use to do that until i got a new program and tweeked the setting. Now, it runs more like a cadence sensor and I have to brake to have it cut off! Settings need refined.
Does your console now read voltahe, Current and Ahrs? I have a beta version that did, but it scrolls and is small and inaccurate. The CA is 10x easier to see and use.
