Back from the high country now. Vic is a great place for off-roading and camping
I'll try to answer all the questions in one hit.

Yes, unforunately they are different. And yes...very annoying.

There is as small charge as it's not a trivial exercise to modify it. The unit has extra components added to the PCB, and an extra electrical harness which has genuine MM connectors for plug n play installation. Then there's the effort to re-program and test it, and return postage costs.

Sure did And it did provide great new situation in which to test the software.
SPORT mode works exactly as I wanted on the very steep inclines - no changes needed.

No - I wasn't have to so this. The aim is for very fast to turn-around. Hence we delay shipping the upgrade kit so we don't get a flood of unit back at the same time and cause delay.

We headed to the north so missed the worst of it. Had some pretty mean hail though - which reminds me. I need to check if the roof got dented.

Default Lockup-mate lite upgrade?

Marshall, does this upgrade offer extend to lockup-mate lite as well? You mentioned a while ago this should be available but I didn't see any mention of this product on the upgrade page (or elsewhere on your site).

Cheers,
Stephen

I've have, what I'm told is the first Lockup Mate to be supplied with the 'quirk improvement' from new.

It's been installed for a bit over a week and I'm very happy to report that it completely resolves the quirk.

Great work Marshall!

Default installed Lockup Mate update to fix quirk

Just re-installed my Lockup Mate after Marshall updated it with the quirk fix. All works well, I can now drive it with Lockup Mate engaged around town, which was really not very enjoyable before the fix. So well done MM 4x4
As far as installation was concerned, it was all very easy EXCEPT inserting the new harness plugs into the existing transmission shift connector. Access is very limited and the male component of the OEM connector points forward and horizontal and is fixed on its underside, so can't be manoeuvered. The corresponding female plug (on the Lockup Mate harness) has to be manoeuvered down, forward, then come back on itself horizontally to meet the male plug. You do this pretty much blind, because your hand completely fills the access path, whose edges are unpleasant. Skin, blood and curses were left on the surrounding trim but I finally (after at least an hour) did it . You need hands that are thin, with long flexible fingers. None of my family or my neighbours is a concert pianist or has Marfan syndrome so I just had to persist. The female plug of the OEM connector and the male plug of the Lockup Mate harness are both mobile and not a problem to connect.

Yes, you do the same when installing Auto Mate and I mentioned in the other thread that it was tricky and a wife with small hands would be a bonus. Otherwise try it with a couple of pairs of needle nose pliers. After buggering around for a while, once I had it lined up it slips in very easily.

Yes, I won’t deny it is fiddley. I actually state this in the instructions.
The alternative is literally pulling half the dash apart.
I’ve done this step numerous times in my car. Sometimes I get it in 30 seconds, other times 5-10 minutes.
It’s such a good feeling when the connector slides in. Ahhh <<click>> Got it!

Reminder that the lockup-mate upgrade offer announced in last January ends on the 31st March, which is this Sunday.

see web-site for details https://www.mm4x4.com.au/lockup-mateupgradeprogram

The shift connectors for the PC challenger have finally arrived from Japan, so I'll be releasing auto-mate for the PC in April as promised, and also the lockup-mate upgrade program for the PC challenger.
