New functions and bikes are continually being added to the GS-911. See the GS-911 Function Chart for the latest information.
The functions available with the GS-911 will vary depending on the model of bike (or, more correctly, the type of controllers/ECUs fitted to that bike). For up-to-date details about the functionality available, search for your bike in the GS-911 Function Chart.
The functions of the GS-911 are classed into two types: "Emergency" and "Service".
The use of these "Emergency" functions is unlimited in both the "Enthusiast" and "ProUnlimited" versions: you can check any number of bikes.
Always check the GS-911 Function Chart for detailed information about the functions available for your bike, but these are the most common tasks:
The GS-911 Enthusiast versions are limited to use of the Service functions for up to 10 bikes. The ProUnlimited versions have no limitation.
"Enthusiast" / "ProUnlimited" versions
The "Enthusiast" licence allows unlimited use of the "Emergency" functions and a 10-bike limit for the "Service" functions. Ideal for the home user and their fellow riders.
A new GS-911wifi has an "Enthusiast" licence.
The "ProUnlimited" license allows unlimited use of the "Emergency" functions and unlimited use of the "Service" functions. Ideal for workshops and bike clubs. It allows allows priority access to the latest functions before release to the Enthusisat versions.
"ProUnlimited" requires an annual subscription of only 99USD. It can be activated at any time from within the GS-911 software/wifi application and does NOT need to be renewed every year: the GS-911 will revert to an Enthusiast licence/10-bike service limit.
Note there is no difference in functionality between the versions. The only difference is the software license.

Please note that the GS-911usb G2 Enthusiast cannot be upgraded to a ProUnlimited version.>
"GS-911 DIAGNOSTICS APPLICATION DOWNLOADS FOR WINDOWS PC"
The software (Windows PC only) can be obtained from the manufacturers website after the purchase of a GS-911.
The "GS-911 Diagnostics Installer" checks if your GS-911 is genuine and subsequently downloads and installs the GS-911 Diagnostics program.
The GS-911 interfaces (PC program/wifi access) are in english by default. There are translations available for various languages which may be purchased from within the GS-911 interface. These translations are manually done by each GS-911 country distributor as the automatic translations of the technical texts by a browser-based translator are often unintelligible.
A GS-911 purchased from Motorvista includes free access to the Spanish version of the software. A GS-911 bought from any other GS-911 distributor does not include free access to the Spanish version of the software.
The software contains all the diagnostic and service functionality available. Updates are automatically notified and installed. Note that in addition to the program updates, there are also regular updates to the actual GS-911 device.
The software is very easy to use since it has always been developed with the bike-owner in mind and although there is a user manual available, the use of the service functions is explained in the program itself.

"GS-911WIFI UTILITIES FOR MAC AND WINDOWS"
These programs are tools to facilitate and manage the WiFi connection of your GS-911. They also enable registration and firmware updates.
"GS-911WIFI LAUNCHER FOR IOS AND ANDROID"
These mobile apps will "find" a GS-911 on your local network if you do not know their IP address.
In the case of the GS-911wifi tools:
In the case of "Service" functions, the GS-911 cannot store all the functionality for every bike internally: it is downloaded on demand from the Hexcode server. Hence for "Service" use, the GS-911wifi must have internet access/must be connected to a local network ("Infrastructure" mode).
The GS-911wifi provides two modes of wifi operation.
1) Device-to-Device (D2D) Mode
The D2D mode is intended for use by the bike-owner in any location, however remote, allowing connection and use of the GS-911 with any wifi-capable mobile.
The GS-911wifi functions as an open Wi-fi Access Point and you can connect to it like any public wifi network. Using your mobile device to scan for a wifi network, the GS911 will identify itself as "GS-911xxxx" (the last four digits will be the device serial number). Connect to the GS911 (there is no password).
2) Infrastructure Mode
The Infrastructure mode allows the GS-911wifi to connect to your wifi network (just like a wifi printer for example). In this mode, any device (pc, tablet/mobile) that has access to your network can browse to the GS-911wifi's own webpage, so avoiding the need to move a laptop with the device, ideal for workshops.
How to "find" the GS-911wifi on your network?
If you don't know the assigned IP address of the GS-911wifi, there are two utilities provided (iOS/Android) which will identify the IP address of any GS-911wifi on the network.

Beware of online shops or OBD "specialists" offering much cheaper versions of the GS-911: these are most likely Chinese clones (see here for more information). If the GS-911 includes a CD of software, it is a clone. The clones are not updateable and generally stop working after a few months.
