FC Datalogit vs FC PRO software kit

just wanted to know what you guys input on both parts. are these two parts thesame? i've read thru the forum about members using datalogit. i called apexi yesterday and talked to Jun (tech), and he told me about the FC pro software kit. has anyone use the fc pro software kit? i've called some apexi PE dealers and some of them told me that the FC PRO isn't available for public unless you are a PE dealer. but Jun and some other PE dealer said i can purchase it for $250-$295 shipped. thanks guys.

There's actually a few versions of PowerFC software (and cable).

Software:

Apexi FC Pro - Power Excel Tuners only - Not For sale

Apexi PowerFC Excel Software - Retail version - $460 AUD - Its a cut down version of FC Pro, has limited features. Basically read/write maps and change the same **** the hand controller can do.

FC Datalogit - The 3rd party product by the NZ guys. $500 AUD with cable/dongle and software. Access to all the hidden stuff from the hand controller. One unit does mutliple versions of PowerFC (ie: Skyline, WRX, S15, Silvia, GTR) etc.

FC Tune - Free 3rd party product being developed by a guy in Germany. It's nearing completion and is an alternative to datalogit, offering a better interface, more bug fixes, better features and overall better usage. if you wish to check it out have a look on the rx7 forums http://www.rx7club.com/showthread.ph...5&page=3&pp=15 and look for "FC Tune" thats the program. You can download and use the beta but you'll need a datalogit of apexi cable.

FC Watch - A virtual guage program again by someone else on the rx7 forums. Have a look (use the link above) and check it out. Very cool.

Cables:

Apexi FC Pro Cable - Power Excel Dealers only

Apexi PowerFC Excel - Comes with the retail software you can buy

FC Datalogit Cable/Dongle Box - Comes with Datalogit

FC Tune Cable - The guy is making one up

Kashima's / Yahoo auctions Dodgy one - Theres a few types floating around, yahoo.jp auctions

very informative post paul thanks. Im purchasing FC datalogit here shortly, and I spoke to one of their dealers recently, and the newest version of their software allows interface with every pfc ever made. I dont know why anyone would consider apexis watered down version especially this late after launching the PFC initally.

The last option that you speak of is the map tracer, right?

yeah datalogit lets you do map tracer, but plot values on the highlighted cells
so you can do advanced watch for knocking - map tracer and it will highlight cells like a traditional map tracer but plot max/avg/min knockin values for each filled in cell, so you can easily work out which cells are knocking, or certain INJ, IGN, water temp etc etc...

yeah the recent datalogits do any powerfc, except supra

theres a special model for toyota supra still i am pretty sure
