How it Works
The X9 has a clever PCB module which updates the points of reference for a vehicles throttle mapping. Throttle Lag is added by manufacturers for a number of reasons including fuel economy. The HIKEit X9 maintains the standard parameters of your vehicle; however, introduces a sharper throttle curve (or smoother when in 5×4 Eco mode) and reduces the “dead zone” in your cars accelerator pedal.
HIKEit’s Auto IQ Control Mode lets the driver set and forget while the X9 learns the driver’s behaviour and selects the mode from the best of 36 mode settings based on the current driving situation. Generally, fly-by-wire pedal accelerator systems have two sensors that measure both how hard and far the pedal; the X9 tweaks these for a more enjoyable, safer and fuel saving drive.
HIKEit’s Performance mode (with 9 level settings) is not for the ‘Sunday driver’. HIKEit setting 1 is classified as intense while setting 7-9 is like ‘launch mode’. Touching the mode button while in any mode will activate ‘Over-Take mode’ that will instantly put the X9 into HIKEit Mode setting 9.
HIKEit’s Cruise mode (with 9 level settings) is a tuned down version of the popular sport/tow mode which will give you more of a boost than your cars original setting. It’s perfect for everyday driving that won’t blow out your fuel bill and knock your socks off.
HIKEit’s Sport/Tow mode (with 9 level settings) is a fun way to get around without the adrenalin boost of HIKEIT mode. It’s perfect when towing anything and will adjust perfectly to the application at hand. After Auto IQ Mode, Sport/Tow mode is the most favoured.
Economy Mode (E) Economy mode has 9 settings that reduce the response from the pedal – it generally only results in a slight reduction in fuel economy, but with a dampened response it can be particularly handy in situations such as 4wding, towing, beach driving etc.
Auto Brightness Adjustment
Built into the face of the HIKEIT X9 is a clever Ambient Light Sensor which will adjust the brightness of the blue display light so you can see the settings perfectly in day light and you won’t be blinded at night time.
Undetectable by your Dealership
We understand the last thing you want to do is void your new car warranty. With the HIKEIT you don’t need to wait for your warranty to finish before you can start customising it and improving it’s driving performance.
Once removed, the HIKEIT won’t leave a trace when removed while some other aftermarket tuners or programmers will add “red flags” on the ECU after installed. Rest assured that the HIKEIT is 100% UNTRACEABLE by dealerships. Before visiting your dealer for a service just unplug the HIKEIT and hide it out of sight. For repair work we recommend removing it just to be safe.
