      I should have kept saving for e-level instead of buying auto pilot!

      Anyone interested in buying one of my arms and a leg?!

      Does this work with Switchspeed? Only reason I ask is that I have considered the eLevel upgrade but the recent talk about it having a mind of its own makes me nervous especially with a what $800 upgrade?

      I know the initial concept was intended to work only with the e-Level. But this system is still in its infancy so it is possible that AccuAir would make it work with both.

      so it could work based on air pressure you meant ?

      Highly unlikely. Currently Accuair has no provisions for pressure based height systems. From what I understand this will only work with the E-Level wireless receiver. This leads me to beleive that they only intend on using the I-Level system in conjunction with E-Level. "Analog" Switchspeed users, like myself, will probably have to upgrade to the E-Level system. Merely speculation, very excited to see the finished product.

      Definitely in for later as more info is released. Probably no way I'm not going to pick this up.

      Wow! Definitely subscribed to this! Also curious if this will be compatible with Switchspeed mgmt.

      I am just curious how it will work out... I mean you are spending almost $2k alone on management plus this? It is totally rad but I hope it's not a $500 addition. I also really hope it works with my SwitchSpeed.

      I see what you mean on that, I did not assume they would offer a pressure based system. The fact is that the output signals from the controller have to be either the same or very similar. However I am sure the method of sending said signal is only available to elevel users, just like the remote. Smart thing would be to offer a receiver that plugs inline with the current USB plug so you could still hook up the wired controller but had the ability to pick up signals from the iPhone. Pipe dreams...

      Who knows. To be honest I doubt it will be that well encrypted, in my experience comapnies tend to rush products to market with very little thought ofbsecurity. Take GM for instance it was found that most of the cars they made with BT ware easy to spoof into and u can enable the Mic in the car without the driver being aware. Lets hope security isn't an after thought on this product because as u said someone could bottom out ur suspension while in motion.

      Correct me if I am wrong, but I was under the impression that the key fob does not function when the ignition is on. This is in order to prevent inadvertent wireless airouts while in motion. I would imagine I-level would be the same way.

      Come on guys. Think about it. It's a bluetooth device.

      You have to enable discovery mode on it, pair the device to the phone, and input the pin to finalize the connection.

      To enable discovery mode would require physical access to to bluetooth module to enable said mode.

      Meaning no one is going to walk by your car and start measing with your ride height.

      I'm not worried about that. I'm just curious what they will use to control it. I am curious of aside from logos there is a difference between the switchspeed version and elevel. If not then they would be foolish to not allow integration for either systems. Who l know's.

      Only major issue i can foresee is the bluetooth sucking out the Iphone battery.

      I did some test month ago comparing battery life with and without Bluetooth, it was a major difference, battery was near 10% at the end of the day with regular usage VS around 40% when disabled.

      hoopty on air
      11-09-2011 05:54 PM #47
      If I ever do get switch speed (still undecided on switchspeed or avs 9 switch) I am just gonna do a simple 4 channel wireless remote to control it from the outside if I want. I don't own a iphone, nor a droid, just a phone that texts and talks, so no iphone air ride apps for me.

      BUT this is pretty sweet.

      Official announcement:

      Its finally official... AccuAir Announces: “i-Level” App to be released in 2012!!!

      AccuAir announced its “i-Level” app at last week's 2011 SEMA Show and yielded an overwhelming response. Scheduled for release in 2012, the "i-Level" app will give users full control over their Air Suspension System through a smart phone, iPad, or iPod touch. The app will be designed to look and operate very similar to the popular e-Level TouchPad interface, yet the iPhone and Android's vast capabilities will allow for expanded features limited only by YOUR imaginations. That's right, AccuAir has started their first-ever enthusiast-based Development Team to share thoughts, ideas, and suggestions for exactly how the “i-Level” app should look and perform.

      AccuAir expects the “i-Level” app to be used alongside one of the existing hard-wired interfaces like the TouchPad or Rocker Switch, but a full feature-set and more is scheduled for the exciting new e-Level accessory. Some key features currently scheduled for the “i-Level” app are listed below:
      - Down-loadable for FREE through the App Store.
      - Utilizes WIFI to communicate with a new wireless receiver that will plug-n-play to the e-Level ECU.
      - Primary app features will be compatible with all existing e-Level systems (some advanced app features may require a FREE ECU firmware update by AccuAir).

      Primary “i-Level” app features:
      - Select or save from the e-Level system's three automatic height settings.
      - Manually adjust the height of all four corners of the vehicle.
      - Select the e-Level's “All-Down” function for parking.
      - Menu driven selection of e-Level system features.
      - Menu driven system diagnostics with “push” notifications.

      Proposed Advanced “i-Level” app features:
      - Tank pressure display
      - Compressor status display.
      - Real-time vehicle height display (% of travel, or inches based on reference point)

      The “i-Level” Development Team:
      “We have had endless requests for this product which tells me that our user-base likely has many ideas for how they think the app should look and operate. Getting our users involved in the development process will guarantee that we create one app that meets everyone's needs.” Co-Owner, Reno Heon
      Becoming a part of the elite development team requires first signing up here http://eepurl.com/g0wYj. Applicants will then receive a questionnaire by email. Responses will be judged and the most valuable applicants will become part of the “i-Level” Development Team. Members will get to vote on design decisions throughout the process, add comments related to the development, and have the opportunity to become part of the BETA Test Team in mid-2012.
