      I'm presuming there will be encrypted communications between the application and the receiver. It would be a pretty huge oversight to allow somebody to easily control another persons system... especially when that person could be driving and end up losing control of their vehicle and seriously injure themselves and/or others.

      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.

      iLevel may function that way... hopefully it functions that way. I'd still want to make sure I'm the only person that can control my car, though. Somebody could jack your **** up, put a ****ing spike or something under it, then lower it. Bam, now your car has a hole in the floor because some ******* decided to **** with it.

      Is that likely to happen? Probably not. Should the product be insecure enough for it to happen? Definitely not.

      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.

      There's a big oversight here that one could potentially force a disassociation between controller and the receiver, and sniff the resulting pairing traffic, and crack the PIN.

      Is anybody going to do that while you're walking by? Yeah, totally doubt it. I just like the idea of longgggg passwords and heavy encryption.... especially when it comes to something that might deal with my car.

      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.

      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.

      Haha. Honestly i like my blackberry, hasn't let me down so far and was only down for a few hours during that whole RIM outage.
      Also i have an ipod classic (gen VI i believe) that has 160GB which holds half of my music.
      Now i am going to have to "upgrade" to an ipod touch just for the wifi and touchscreen

      I know which is odd because the lack of OS updates and fragmentation makes the phones damn near inoperable at times. My father tried for two years before he threw in the towel and went iPhone. This is coming from a guy who was not an Apple fan boy.

      I dont like considering myself a fan boy but I am coming to the realization that I am an Android fan boy. The segmentation of the market does suck but rooting your phone really gets rid of most of that. I agree that also BB is on its way out, google is no longer going to support the devices at the end of the month (no new apps or updates for their apps).

      But thats all off topic. Looks like a cool product, I cant wait for some of my friends to get it so I can start messing with it. For me I am very happy with my E3 setup for the time, but I have always been impressed with AccuAirs quality and polish.

    33. 11-14-2011 11:39 AM #68
      I'm excited for this, I want to pre-order!

      With this I'd assume the driver would still have the ability to adjust the ride height with the controler rather that relying solely on their smart phones, correct?
