123ignition of the Netherlands has become a reputable name in the world of electronic ignition-systems for classic cars. The units are carefully designed with respect for the originality of the classic car. All 123ignition distributors resemble their mechanical counterparts. The outside looks 'original', the inside is 'high-tech' and performs its task without any wear.
With this application, you can wirelessly enter ANY advance-curve and ANY vacuum-curve into the new "123\TUNE+" - range of products. These units work CW ánd CCW, work on 6 Volt ánd on 12 Volt, and they're all equipped with a vacuum- / boost- sensor. You can activate a luxury rev. - limiter (random spark stealing) and you can 'immobilise' the ignition with a PIN-code, to prevent theft.
Now, with the engine running, the iPod / iPad / iPhone can be used to 'TUNE'......one can see the engine-speed, the generated advance, the time, the temperature of the distributor, battery-voltage, spark-energy, vacuum/boost, and...(provided your iOS-device is equipped with a GPS-module) the speed of the car.
After activating the 'TUNE'-button, you can adjust the advance manually plus or minus 5 degrees in steps of a tenth of a degree (crankshaft that is). This result will not be stored in memory though, but can come in very handy finding the optimum advance-curve for your car !!
123\Tune+ distributors will be available to fit : Alfa, Austin, BMW, Citroen ( 2CV, DS and Traction ), Ford-Kent, Fiat, Jaguar, Lancia, Mercedes, MG, Midget, Mini, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Triumph, Volvo and Volkswagen. See our website for more details on the supported models.

Ratings and Reviews
I have a 1976 BMW 2002 with a mostly stock engine. This distributor and Bluetooth software work great. There are a few issues that I have overcame. The first one was a reset for the radio. The blue light kept blinking and would not connect. Guys in Germany who sold me the distributor said to short the black to the red, turn on the ignition, wait about 15 seconds, the light becomes solid and should connect. That worked great.
The other issue I had was going between my iPhone and iPad. It would not stay connected for longer than 15 seconds or so. It kept disconnect in and reconnecting. I turned off the iPhone and just used my iPad and all was good. No connection issues. I assume these are minor software bugs that will be fixed with an update. Car runs better than ever. I found an extra 10 horsepower..
Update.... New version crashes on both iPad Pro and iPhone 7. Crashes just after the splash screen. Please fix. I love my 123.
Update 2. Great work in the latest update. Love being able to save the curves. Makes it so much easier.
One thing to add, it would be great to be able to move the gauges around so the one of interest is in the middle and larger to see.
Great device, App needs an update
Firstly I love the capabilities this dizzy gives me on my Datsun 240z. I can tune the advance curve and see speed, rpm and advance accurately. My stock tach is almost perfect, but because of changes to wheel size my speedometer only reads accurately in the 40-50mph range.
A couple of problems:
1. A few times it shows ‘connected’ but doesn’t read the advance curve that was last loaded. So I’m not sure which curve it is using. There should be a ‘default’ you can save and it stores that it will use as a last resort. Pressing settings and then back to the dashboard usually fixes this.
2. Once in a while the mph has been wildly wrong I’m doing a flat 65 on the freeway and it jumps to 140mph. My car can’t even do 140! The speedo should have a range check based on the rpm and suppress an impossible speed.
3. Choice of large gauge to show speed or timing advance would be a nice feature.
Overall - a very useful app. Didn’t get 5 stars for the above faults.
I might have cried a little when I found this distributor
This app is great! I wouldn’t mind being able to store a few curves. I don’t know the difficulty’s in making something like this thing work but let’s say you have a really hot engine and you’ve tweaked your timing to the limit of detonation, things like hot weather and fuel quality can put it over the top, the tune feature is great but If something like a knock sensor and a auto tune feature could be incorporated I’d be super jazzed! I’ve installed one on my type 4 and one on a customers 911 and the results are great and worth the money but dyno tuning is needed for the insane results you’ll get.
