Default Brand New Predator Tuner Says I need to download an update???

I just purchased a brand new Diablosport Predator Tuner for my 2006 Ram 5.7 Hemi.
I plugged it in and started the process.
Early in the process it said I need to download an update.
Does anyone know how I go about doing this?
The dealer I bought it from didn't mention anything about needing to download updates.
Thanks for any helpful info.

I can't speak exactly to the Predator, but I have a Trinity and it came with a cd that loaded the necessary software for the pc interface as well as downloading updates. Also I have noticed that since they are universal tools to an extent, they will prompt you for updates that are not always applicable to your setup. If you don't have the pc interface setup or have more questions... here is the link to DS tech support they arent the fastest to respond but usually quite helpful when they do get back to you.

Do I need to purchase this cable from the store that sold me the Predator or is it a universal cable that I can purchase from any computer supply place?
Also can these downloads be made using a Mac computer or only a PC with Windows?

I don't believe it's universal. and i'm sure the place where you bought it from might have it, but then again you said he didnt know about the update...best bet is to go online n search around, they run around 34 to 40 that i've seen

It's not uncommon to have to update the predator when you first get it, I had to update the CROM and the tune just to upload it to the truck.

pay someone to do a simple update? what about the next update as they do updates frequently..what if you want to try and datalog, in which case you plug the programmer into truck, and plug the serial cabl to programmer and laptop to do some real time datalogging (important if you plan to do email custom tuning).... buy a cheap $10 serial cable and do it yourself...
