Ap v3

Just wanted to let the ones that don't know the Cobb aaccess port v3 is now released and available for subarus. Better sell your v2 to get a v3 while you can still get decent money for it. Wonder how long before the v2 will be outdated like the v1 and nobody will tune with it? Ive only had mine less than a year does anyone know what features this new one has the old one don't? Open to any thoughts, comments, input, or gripes on this topic. Im thinking about going open source before these start coming out with new versions every couple months like cell phones do :banghead:

Looks like its available for Mazda and subaru right now. Cost 650. Comes with mount, blue interchangable bezel, and case. Looks to be a larger and better resolution screen.

They aren't available until August 1st. It's pre-ordering right now.

Still not a good investment IMHO over the older ones. I would never have it in the car to begin with. Now it looks even more like a smart phone that would cause someone to want to break in to steal it.

Shouldn't be keeping it in the open. I don't.

I wouldn't get one right away just from personal experience w getting stuff as soon as it comes out. My luck something always goes wrong with a newer product/version.

From what I've heard it's got a larger Color screen and a few more features.

I'll be doing a full product announcement as soon as I have time.

Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about the NEW features, but agree with the concerns about a new release; limited application (vehicles) at first, incomplete development, limited availability.

Hopefully it will bring the cost of a V2 AccessPort down, because I'm in the market for one.

Bahh, I'll stick with my v2.... If they stop tuning with the v2.... I'll be done with COBB altogether.

Can they load your same custom maps from the old one back to the new one if you do this?

Yes. You save your maps to your CPU. Unmarry the v2. Load maps onto your new v3 then reinstall to your car.

Any additional tuning parameters?

I'm guessing no for Subies.

If you buy the v3 from Cobb, you can trade your v2 back to Cobb for 325.
