Which tuner

Hand held or the one for the iPad? Pros and cons.

I like a handheld with a direct connection. If you use one that uses WiFi, and you lose a signal, you could have problems.

Good call on the Bluetooth connection... never thought of it that way... I personally like the handheld myself as well

Overwhelming win for hand held. Didn't realize the iPad connected via WiFi. I live in the country so connection may be an issue. Thanks folks.

They meant to say Bluetooth, haha. I got the iTSX wireless one and I think it's great. If you don't have a premium GT with the little screen in the middle you can monitor all kinds of things on the device you program with, like A/F, Temperatures, etc.

How reliable is the Bluetooth? I have a base gt with brembos so I don't have the screen thing.

It's very reliable. I've never had it crash, or get interfered by anything. I have no complaints whatsoever about the wireless one. I think it'd be a good decision for you since you don't have the digital screen to see sensor readings.

On the other hand...

You could go with the handheld and pick up one of these; AeroForce Mustang Single Interceptor Gauge (96-04 All) FD101 if you wanted to be able to read all your sensors off of a gauge instead of with the iPad.

The handheld + the aeroforce gauge would cost a little more than the iTSX by itself, but it'll be more user friendly on a day to day basis when trying to read sensor readings.
