Got the Tazer, now what?

I just received my Tazer today. I was curious for those that have it, what was the first thing you did/first things you recommend doing?

I have yet to plug it into my vehicle and want to do more research before I start messing with the system. I also dont have a windows computer so need to use a friends to access the ZPU.

Any and all advice/recommendations appreciated!

- SRT Performance Pages (EVIC pages; 0-60, 1/8 mile, 1/4 mile, g forces)
- Light Show
- Rear Cam while in Drive (double-click the 'mute' button to view video; only works at low speed)

I have not tried Line Lock and I haven't had to reset any codes. I haven't been able to figure out exactly how to reset adaptives, but will keep trying.

Works as advertised with no issues. In my mind, it's worth the price for the NAV in motion - the other stuff is just fun to play around with. (It would be nice if they could figure out to get the mirrors to auto fold with lock)

If enough people are interested, could look into getting a group buy together (or feel free to name drop for referrals)

Re: Got the Tazer, now what?

Will this work on 2017?

Also FYI on 2017 I just noticed they now allow the Backup Camera while in drive !!

But it resets after like after 10 seconds. But this is great to just take a peak at what's going on behind you (check a trailer etc.).

Re: Got the Tazer, now what?

You shouldn't need a computer - mine was shipped with the latest firmware and you just plug it in and change the settings on the EVIC display on the gauge cluster.

I think you only have to plug into a computer if you want to do things like set shift points and whatnot (more relevant to charger/challenger vs the Jeep)

Re: Got the Tazer, now what?

I want to take headlights and fogs off the light show because I have HID's and it probably isn't good for them to strobe. Which is the only reason I will be loading the PC software.

I think it's always been that way I don't think that is new.

I'd have to check the owner's manual, but I don't think my 2014 SRT allows that

You've always been able to drive forward with the reverse cam on but once you go over a certain speed it cuts off.


The tazer allows you to enable the screen without going into reverse though.

That is not the same thing as being able to push a button at speed and look behind you.
