SPS - Serial Port Switch History

The original SPS switches were launched in 2003, with new vehicles being launched and Revo catering for a growing number of ECU types there have been numerous alterations to the switches over the years. Functionality on the SPS's vary, you can always find older switches for sale however a switch from 2004 will not work on a vehicle from 2013 running Revo software.
