not an expert on them but i have one in my 07.5 and i like it but i would recommend getting it dyno tuned if you want the best results in a tune. anyway back to your problem, have you tried updating it via USB on your computer?

I have tried doing that and it didn't recognize it when I hook it up to USB and couldnt get much to work. Do I need the cd that it comes with because I didn't get that when I bought it.

i could remember really but the only thing he could have done was select uninstall GT and that sets it back to as if its never been installed... when you plug it in your computer after it reads the SD card it should tell you that your in USB mode and you can key 2 for abort USB mode then it will bring you to the gauge display and then you can select key 1 for menu

install download
gauge setup
set user options
performance testing
driving coach setup
vehicle settings
special functions
diagnostics
show settings
uninstall GT
update GT software

i need to know exactly in detail what it say and does when you hook it up to USB and what it does on the truck too

this tuner doesn't have an sd card, are we talking about the same one or does it matter?

well hell thats the problem my friend. it has no programming on it. everything is stored and downloaded to an external memory that being an SD card micro 2GB is what mine come with out of the package.

after you get a SD card for it you will need to open the update agent. plug up to USB a window will pop up and it will ask you what tuner you have select what tuner you have and then it will download and update the tuner programming, not the programming for your specific truck!! you will need then hook it back to your truck install in on your truck so it can read what truck you have and link all the info off your truck to it...do not select download yet!!! you will probably have to get the latest update for your truck unplug bring it back to your computer open the update agent and hook it up to USB. the update agent will then show your truck and tell you if there is an update for it. once updated you can then hook it back up to your truck and then select download GT
