The tune file used by MTune.
The .MaxxECU-save file, which is a XML file. Here opened in a text editor to see the content.
The actual log file, which is basically a tab delimited file format, commonly used by many ECU systems and loggers.
The .MaxxECU-log file opened in an text editor.
MTune can export logfile in the .CSV file format for easy import into external aftermarket softwares.
Basically a compressed file (zip) with the logfile (.MaxxECU-log) you saved, AND the current tune (.MaxxECU-save) from the ECU when the log started.
Note: If using the ECU Logging settings, it saves the tune from the ECU right after the download is finished).
1. Make sure your windows operating system show file extensions, here is a video explaining how to do it.
2. Rename the ".MaxxECU-Zip.log" extension to ".zip" by right clicking and select "rename", a confirmation dialog will appear, please answer "yes" to that one...
3. Open the .zip file in winzip, winrar or use the built-in windows extraction tool (right click, extract..). The tune and the logfile is now extracted and can be used as you like.
Note: In MTune 1.122 and newer, you also have the ability to export the logfile to a CSV format.
