Is there anything an AP can do that I can't do with a tactrix and a laptop?

About to pull the trigger on this used tactrix.

As far as basic tuning and logging, they are identical. The differences surface once you get into complete custom tuning and really put each to use. Also when you start tuning the newer models.

Logging is one of the main reasons I want one and I can't justify the price of an AP just to log. And I already have a laptop anyway. I'll need to tune eventually but I may end up just having a shop or someone else do it depending on what my free time looks like. I'm more after maximum safety than power.

My 13 is tuned with both Opensource and APv3. I did it specifically to compare/contrast both as well as stay up to date with Cobb tuning. I am surprised at how rarely I use the Cobb. I really thought I'd use it more than this, but I don't.

To tune it, you gotta be connected to a laptop anyway. And to log wideband you gotta be connected to a laptop as well, and run yet another cable for the wideband. So you're driving around with a spiderweb of cables all over the car. So basically, the only thing it's really good for is on the fly map switching, which most people do very rarely, and "watching the vitals" which is stupid too cause it's way inaccurate and inefficient, even if you do spot a hint of knock you can't really tell where it was, and if you can't replicate it, it's useless.

I'm not knocking the accessport. But 90% of the people out there don't even know why they get them, or if they even need one in the 1st place. At least with the pre-08 Subaru's.

I saw jalopnik post that on facebook. As usual, the "i've never gone 5 mph over the speed limit" crew came in to talk a bunch of ****.

Pretty poor judgment to go that fast on an unfamiliar road though.
