ATR is long gone. Cobb replaced it with Accesstuner Trust me the $150 is worth it for the class, you can never learn too much.

If you have a protune, there is a decent chance your tuner locked the map. Very commonplace in the industry to prevent tuners copying, if it's locked you won't be able to see anything.

Like Basco said, the great ATR has been replaced with a slimmer version called AccessTuner. They require you to pay $150 for an online class to learn some of tuning basics but that doesn't mean it is going to teach you everything you need to know on how to safely/reliably tune your own car with their software. Cobb did this to help Protuners and others who actually know what they're doing from being blamed/sued due to someone else chaning the map and screwing things up before flashing the old map back on.

Not only did this make it harder to access the software but each ECU model requires it's own version, so even if you find someone with ATR they may not have the correct version for your year ECU (they change almost every 2-3 years). Datalogs can be read regardless of your tuning software, and unless you MUST have Cobb's AP I would recommend you look into Tactrix and gauges as you will spend about the same for nearly all the same features (minus the need to keep a laptop on hand).

To download your logs from your AP you just need AP Manager, which is still free.

Don't get me wrong, I love my APv3. But I do plan on getting a Tactrix cable and gauges down the road as I know my plans will NOT work with Cobb's APv3 on my year with Flex Fuel (at least not officially or by design).

What exactly about the AP do you like over the Tactrix setup?
