    New MOTEC CDL3 Dash/Logger

    Just coming back from PRI, I'm pretty impressed with the MOTEC CDL3 Dash Logger. I wrote a short blog post about it here; something to consider for people looking at entry level data products:

    http://www.apexspeedtech.com/motec-c...-products-2012

    I think this is going to be a big hit with the track-day crowd. For a very reasonable price, you can buy a kit that plugs right into your OBD-II port and records data while providing a really high quality dash display at a great price. You really can't beat MOTEC dashes for features and ease of use and I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of these in club race cars.

    What is their compatibility? All OBD2 systems?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    The CDL3 communicates with CAN & RS232 protocols. So its not all OBDII, but most newer ones. For BMW that translates to roughly 2007 and later.

    For earlier cars, you can setup sensor inputs but you have to get the I/O option. If you have an aftermarket ECU, chances are the CDL3 can display data from it. What are you running right now?

    Sticky, its the first MOTEC product that really works well with street cars. Since its OBD-II compatible, powers through the port and uses GPS for speed, you can use it to supplement your main dash or even better, plug it in for track days, etc and have real MOTEC data, then take it out for your morning commute!
