Saw this on another forum. The MPVI2 with pro feature set is now capable of datalogging independently of a laptop based on a trigger (be it button like the bluetooth or a certain parameter)

Pro Feature Set – HPTuners

Not dealing with a laptop bouncing around in the car would be nice.
I've been meaning to do the MPVI 1 to 2 upgrade for a while.

Anyone using the MPVI2 currently? Any reliability issues with it?

That's nothing new. The pro version of the older MVPI (which I have) has that ability.

I've been using it since this spring. No issues so far, although I don't use it very often.

10ish inch tablet with a cd mounted holder - works well, and you feel like hackerman when the guy next to you looks over

what kind of tablet are you using? i know windows 10 home or 10 pro is preferred. looking at the surface 3 since it has windows 10 pro, 9-10hrs battery life, 4gb ram, 64gb ssd, and 2.4ghz turbo clocked/1.6ghz otherwise

I use a cheap RCA tablet to just do logs and write. I do any actual work on my desktop. HP Tuners is extremely light software

Not at all. I don't like logging blind as I routinely make stops to check data and make adjustments while I'm along the side of the road.

Word of advice:
Get an inexpensive dedicated tuning laptop/tablet that you only use for tuning and have nothing else running on it. Using a laptop you use for other applications other than general internet surfing can be risky. The last thing you want is another application accidentally opening or to cause a hiccup that freezes your computer while writing a tune.

Ya - I wouldn't use this tablet for much more than logging/viewing data.

To get this right - I have to spend an additional $350CAD to unlock the data logging on top of the price already paid for the MPVI2?

Not sure what the CAD price is but $250us for us here in the states which is expensive imo. I dont need the extra pro inputs either so less of a benefit still
