Select Switch Question & Backup Of Stock Map.
I am booked into Aldon Automotive next Monday for a Revo stage 1 remap, firstly I asked about the select switch option and they said that they could either supply one for Ł149 or give me a voucher to send to Revo and they will send it to me for Ł49, has anyone heard of this offer at all?
also, will they backup my Audi stock map before installing the Revo code?
The reason for me asking is because I can`t see how I can use the select switch if my stock map has been overwritten before I even have the switch in my possession (if you get my drift) or do Revo keep a copy of all the latest Audi maps and pre-load the switch before posting it out. I have to say that if the Revo dealer just overwrites the stock map I will be a little nervous if any problems with the car arise, has anyone ever encountered any issues with the Revo code or an Audi dealer being funny about the presence of Revo code?
Apologies for the long winded questions I just want to be 100% before I take the plunge and thanks for any info received.
Can't answer any other question apart from I have heard of the Ł49 select switch from Revo HQ. So yes, that offer does exist.
the slect switch changes the format of the revo map thats all it doesnt remap in any way

I could be wrong about this and if so then please feel free to correct me. it`s just that I am curious to know how Revo are able to revert the car back to stock if there is no actual backup of each individuals ECU software.
