anyone run a jb+ with the cobb accessport?

Ive been looking into the new accessport but found the jb+ was just wondering if anyone ran the two together or of its just a waste of money to get both. Found alot of comparisons but no one seems to be running them together from what ive searched through figured because no one has done it that it might not be worth it but any input on this idea would be nice. Thanks! Oh yeah right now im only running a dci and a synapse cp and bov

DO NOT STACK A JB+ ON TOP OF AN ACCESSPORT. You will be flying blind as far as boost is concerned, not only that but it is completely unnecessary. The AP by itself can handle anything you want to do.

Ok thanks for the info. Doing further research i cant seem t find many difference between the v2 and v3 other than features and price. Doesnt seem like there is much extra performance value. Also is the cobb accessport really worth the price when the open flash tablet is hundreds of dollars less but offers similar power gains?

There is no performance advantage to a V3 over the V2. The V3 offers multi-channel live display and other user interface advancements. Also, more than likely Cobb will eventually stop development in V2 firmware development but that is probably a long time from now.

The AP offers advanced DME logic and datalogging abilities that are unavailable on all other flash tuning platforms.

Ok, thank you once again for the info! Last question, if the only difference is in the data logging and dme would the open flash tablet be better than the ap v3 for the price? I mean 500 dollars for the same power output minus a few features and stylin it seems.

In my honest opinion: no.

A couple hundred dollars isn't worth the lack of features and support.
