Cobb's New V3 Accessport Review

18 February 2014 - 01:57 PM

I’ve now had my Cobb V3 Accessport for about five weeks.

Throughout the time I’ve owned it, I’ve had the chance to use it in my daily driving operations and at the track.

The new V3 has a high end appearance. It feels solid in the hands and has a soft touch backing that won’t scratch when you set it down on a hard surface.

The screen itself is very high resolution and clear.  The screen alone is about the same size as the whole V2 Accessport. It’s a big improved over the old V2.

One of the drawbacks to owning the V2 was not having a mount. Most of the time I crammed the V2’s cord in between the dashboard gauge cluster so it would be at eye level. It worked but it wasn’t stable and could possibly damage the dash material if left overnight.

Cobb solved this with the V3. They include a thin bracket mount with a 3M sticky back so it can me mounted anywhere in the GT-R. Cobb integrated a magnet in the mount and one in the V3 so it just slides effortlessly into the mount with no snapping sound or pressure points. I love magnet mounts.

The gauge display on the V3 is a huge improvement over the old. You can now display a single parameter or up to 6 on the screen at the same time. It comes in handy big time.

They also put an on off switch on the V3 so you don’t have to unplug it like in the past. Great feature.

Flashing the car with the V3 is lighting fast. Much faster than the V2. Flashing the TCM takes no time at all and imo is at least twice as fast as my V2.  5 min max instead of 20 for the V2. Interestingly it takes longer to reset the ECU with the V3. They make you wait about 20 second’s vs 10 in the V2. I sent an email to Cobb asking why this is and they replied that it takes longer to reset all the parameters and people weren’t waiting long enough with the V2.  

The V3 also comes with a nice plush case to keep it in. No more scratches from storing it in the glove box with no case.

All in all I would say this thing is a hit. I use my Accessport much more now than when I had my V2.  It’s more functional and flashes faster. It would recommend an upgrade if you have an older unit. It’s definitely worth it.
