My bad... Ordered the lite which can be upgraded to the Mini later, I think... :fingerscrossed:
That’s good. I didn’t want you to be disappointed.

Yes the upgrade/update is just extra software.

Will the Tazer or Flashcal work on an export model? I live in Japan and purchased the RHD model they sell here and I need a programmer. Previously I had a Flashcal for my JK and it worked for the export model. I'm wondering if it would be the same with the JL.

Tazer works with all models, we ship them around the world, some in Japan already.

I just got 2020 Rubicon Diesel. What would be the most usefull programmer, tuner for me?
I would get the Tazer. This is from someone who has a TrailCal. I will never buy a Superchips product again.

After having use both of them in my Jeep JL , The flashcal for Jeep JL is better.
I found the taser mini cumbersome and difficult to use.
The flashcal has almost all the same features minus lightshow and works faster.
Also it's cheaper.
As of the latest update for flashcal for Jeep JL I can do everything like turn off my electric steering turn off my lockers delete my fad turn off the weather reports on my stereo.
Save your money and get the flashcal.

I also have the used both and currently run the flash cal. I agree the flash cal is more elegant, less cumbersome and feels like more hardware value per dollar spent. However, the ESS function on the tazer is a game changer.
I really wish Superchips would incorporate that feature.

Disconnecting the ESS is pretty easy, and reversible easily. If flashcal can disable the “auto stop/start error. Service now” warning at startup, you’re golden. I don’t own flashcal yet, so I don’t know if anyone has tried that.
