Serial is the slowest form of communication known to the world of computers.

EFILive uses USB! :D

Although the V2 unit includes both serial and USB cables in the package. I haven't received an explanation of why.

These EFILive folks have a way of looking far into the future. I'm assuming it is for some yet to be mentioned future release, super widget thingy. :D

The instruction book that came the V2 said that the serial cable is for "external serial devices" connection to a Dyno. Still amase at the knowledge needed. But real cool just playing.
