Just plugging it in to program to a new tune. Once that is uploaded to the PCM, what we call "flashed", that is the only tune that the pcm is running on. You unplug the programmer and store it. The truck will run that tune until you plug back in and change to something else. However, if you go to a dealer and they use their full diagnostic computer, it may "re-flash" back to the stock program. Plug it into your OBDII and program it how you want and then run the truck like normal.

The new modern "chips" actually mount directly to the back of the pcm and come with a knob or switch that you just tap while rolling down the road and it will switch your tune in about half a second.

NO.

That is unless you unprogram the first truck and then use it on the second truck.

With this programmer you plug it into one truck. Then you download the PCM programming onto the 1705, you then upload the performance program onto the trucks PCM. The 1705 is now what we call "Vin Locked" and can not be used on any other vehicle.

Then if you want to use it on a second truck you need to connect it back to the first truck, download the performance program from the PCM onto the 1705. Then upload the factory programming from the 1705 back onto the first truck. Now the 1705 is not "Vin Locked" to the first vehicle.

You can then go to the second truck and do the same with it

You’d have to call Superchips and pay for the unlock. They get the serial number from you and when you do the computer update on the device , it will unlock.

Actually with the 1705 you download the factory or the program that is on the PCM at the time to the 1705. Then you upload the new program from the 1705 onto the PCM. The 1705 is now vin locked to that vehicle and can not be used on another vehicle until the stock program is reinstalled and the performance program erased.

This is where you can find 1705's at discounted prices, they are vin locked to the vehicle that they were used on and can not be used on a second vehicle. They can be used as a code reader or a boat anchor.
So the 1705 can be used to check codes on other vehicles even if it's vin locked ?

I believe so, but it's very basic...
