Default ECUDatascan

Anyone heard of this?:

There is a cable that works with our WRX's:

Sounds flipping brilliant, plus it won't be rendered useless if you go standalone.

Nvm, just read about Evoscan. Any ideas on which is more useful then?

I'm going to guess that after you purchase this, you will not feel like it was worth the cost. I've used the data cable, and the data flow was quite slow using Revscan, I'm thinking that this Datascan will perform similarly. Couple readings a second(ish)

So, all these cables allow something to connect to your car via usb port and the plugin under the dash somewhere. You could probably go with what ever cable has the best flow and decide if you want to go with ECUDatascan's monitor or a laptop with the datalogging software of your choice?

Yup that was my experience too. Logging was far too slow to be useful for anything. I did however pull the map that was on my old ECU off there using a Polaris snowmobile ECU program.

I have no experience with any of this. But the rate at which the displayed parameters update looks good enough.

Agent - I don't mean that the logging was slow because of the cable, that would be fairly strange - I think that it was possibly slow because of my laptop, or perhaps the ECU information doesn't pulse out super fast?

Whatever the reality, the information seems to be coming too slow to do much with it. Get the cable first, and try one of the free logging programs around - see if you think you'd pay 400.00 for a sweet monitor.

EDIT - the ViPec - yeah, that does look nice and fast, and likely due to the ~$2,000.00 ViPec ECU

Yes a ViPEC is very quick and can display and log a ton of info with fast refresh.

The stock ECU though is another animal. Communication runs at some ridiculously low baud rate (9660 I think), so it just literally can't send out data at a respectable rate.

Ahhh, that clears things up. I suppose I'll wait till I can afford that and a link ecu. Rocket rally has one for $1250.

Nothing can flash to our ECUs (afaik) but here's a good list of the available logging options:
