    Maptuner as code reader?

    I have always run the old school 2 stroke skis but just picked up a 06 GTI SE. There are tons of posts on here about installing tunes. But, I was wondering if you could purchase a maptuner just to pull/clear codes or do you have too register and install a tune before you can get the codes out. Like most everyone else, I have a Spark on the way and thought a maptuner would be a great troubleshooting tool if I could use it without tunes.

    You can check and erase codes and reset service with the maptuner.

    U can do this without buying a full license but the Spark will be much nicer with the tune,...

    Can the maptuner also update the ECU to new firmware when BRP rolls them out.

    It would be a better value to buy a Candoopro system for codes and resetting maintenance, as it has a lot more troubleshooting capability than the maptuner. http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...ndex&cPath=166

    In looking at both the Maptuner and the Candoo Pro, I noticed the Candoo website says their device is good for Seadoo products up to 2013. I have read many posts about the Maptuner working on the Spark but has anyone actually used a Candoo Pro on one?

    Maptuner is for tuning but can also see and reset error codes, and reset service. You get that for free

    Vtech datalogger is for logging values while you drive.
    This is very good tool since it RECORDS data that you can later look at.
    It also measures AFR / lambda that is very useful.

    Depends what you want to do.
