Default Who can program infokey?

Hi guys,

I have purchased an i2 that's in really great condition, 2013 model and still has the moulding knobbles on the tyres!

I'm stuck in the uk with questionable support from segway...

Can anyone help me program a key from my serial number?...I know it needs the mother ship to obtain the codes and they charge but I do have money!..and I can post an infokey where ever is required, if i find out my machine is on the stolen register then it's simply tough luck

I can buy one from ebay but the customs charge is a killer!...

thanks in advance..

As I recall, to program an infokey you need:

Special equipment
This equipment needs an annual licence to remain active.
Support from Segway.

The only folks who have ( had ) that in total, were official Segway dealers.
Some dealers invested in that equipment, others chose not to do so.

Good Luck

Michael

dorrington, I too am looking to have a spare key programmed. I am checking on a few places I found now and will let you know shortly. I'de be happy to send you something from here in California USA as a gift, there should be no customs duties applicable on gifts.

Vince at www.texassegway.com rebuilt and reprogrammed an Infokey for me a couple years ago. The total was $75 which included everything including return shipping, so I would *assume* it's less than that just for the programming. I have no idea if he's still in business, but if he is, he can do the programming for you

On Friday I sent a couple emails out on this waiting for answers.
One to a dealer a couple hours away, the other to this guy who used to re-program old ibutton Segway keys http://www.candlelighttechnology.com/ibutton/

I should be hearing back shorty, and I will be happy to combine and coordinate an order from here in CA if I come up with an economical solution.

I opened up a non functioning key of mine to see what was going on. Aside from being dirty it lost all its "spring" for the buttons to operate and function, which apparently is extremely common.

Long story short, those pins and c-clips are so small and delicate, they fly across the room with the tiniest of movements.. they're gone! So now it's beyond DYI for me.. Im going to program a spare I have from another i2.

Curious to know what the technology is behind programming these.
I dont see any ibuttons inside this key (see pic), perhaps its hidden in between the circuit board and the lcd display. I doubt it. I thought it was bluetooth?

Whatever it is, I can't believe it's been in the marketplace for over 10 years and hasn't been hacked. Found this awesome little ibutton cloner thou wwwDOTyoutubeDOTcom/watch?v=gkU5b4hSm94
