    I recently bought the Innovate Motorsport OT-2, because a friend of mine found it really useful for his Saab when troubleshooting and logging to measure performance gains. But I have had no luck connecting to my late APY ECU - even with just one channel - and according to the Innovate Motorsport support they have no plans of updating the firmware, despite what it says in the manual.

    They told me to return it, but before I do I'd just like to know if anyone in here are using it on a S3?

    For the money mate you would have been better off with VCDS...

    Generic ODB2 tools like this are a little limited tbh...

    Have you checked the diagnostics fuse? can you connect with anything else successfully?

    I guess so - a lesson learned there. I have used VCDS before, but wanted something that didn't involve a laptop on the drivers seat - and my VCDS cable stopped working.
    It actually connected for 3 secs with the ISO 9141 protocol, but then disconnected again, and it kept clicking from the instrument cluster every 2-3secs. I'll have a look at the diagnostics fuse...

    I use a bluetooth obd adaptor with the 'Torque' app for general stuff...

    I use the OT-2 on my S3 AMK/BAM ecu. I mostly use it to log data from other innovate products. It was a bit of a pain to set up in the beginning,I think I had to setup a profile first if I remember correctly.
    VCDS is much better at logging ecu data and determining fault codes.
