Or is it even safe to tow when running these tunes? Lastly, I was on the diablo site today and it looks like the trinity is now avail for us, which is better? Thanks
With the WK2, I don't believe there is a way to use the "real" key with the push button start. There are, however, a very specific set of steps you must follow when loading and unloading tunes from the vehicle. I would caution you to follow these steps exactly. There are people who have rendered their vehicles lifeless and towed to the dealer, perhaps because they didn't RTFM.
Diablosport says to avoid doing anything during the programming process that would cause a change in voltage as that will interrupt the writing process. This includes opening any door during the process. Because it takes about 15 minutes to write a tune and I don't feel like sitting in the vehicle waiting for the process to complete, what I do is to connect the inTune to the Jeep and roll down the driver's side window so I can control the inTune and still have the ability to cycle the start switch periodically as necessary during programming.
As for your towing question, I have no experience with towing while using the inTune, but you may want to post the question on Diablosport's support forum. Their engineers should be able to provide you with an answer.
Finally, I have not had any experience with the Trinity. It does have some nice features that the inTune does not have, like a larger screen, more robust user interface, and the ability to clock a 0-60 and 1/4 mile times.
