Unless you get it cheap and with the married Access Tuner Race software .... There are better solutions now.

IMO the Cobb AP is worthless without the matching ATR software.

Just don't pay too much and not have it do what you expect.

I'm mainly looking for one so I can get Mazda maniacs tuning service. I need a tune and the downstream sensor shut off.

I've looked briefly into Mazda edit, but I have zero idea if it can do that, or how to tune it myself. Or if it can be tuned remotely like Mazda maniacs service, or what I'd even need to buy. So I figured the Cobb would be easiest to go with.

Depends on what you want to do.
If you just want to monitor vitals there are plenty of great bluetooth solutions that will plug into the ODBII slot and link to your phone/tablet.

If you want to do tuning:
- MazdaEdit
- Versatuner
- Adaptronics
- Haltech
Just off the top of my head.

Oh ya I forgot about the MM Service. I'm surprised he is still doing it.
Well that makes sense then. Good luck with purchase.

It's really not that hard to get the AT software nowadays. Their course took me maybe 45 minutes, and surprisingly, I actually learned something. Just factor the cost into the AP you're buying. My only real complaint about the whole process is that the videos are geared towards Mazda 3's and 6's.

The problem is the $150 pill to swallow if you want it. I sent you a PM Reoze about a question I had regarding the process.

Wow cool, you're the first that I've seen that has taken the course.

Thanks for the post
