Subaru Accesstuner

It’s back!  After a brief hiatus, we are excited to announce that Subaru Accesstuner is now available.  Accesstuner is our software package that allows enthusiasts to create custom calibrations for their Accessport-supported vehicle.  New for Accesstuner are features such as COBB Custom Features, Map Compare and Table Filtering!  Previously, features like these were limited to our Accesstuner Pro software used by approved COBB Protuners.  For a complete list of features, please visit the Subaru Accesstuner product page or the following Accesstuner Support Pages.

Why such a delay on the other platforms? I kinda get what you’re going for here, but seriously?

Three more months before those of us with Fords get to use the advanced features again without having to go through some pointless middleman…

How about splitting the difference and releasing a free “Accesstuner Lite” that can only enable things like multiple maps, launch control, etc. and can’t actually change the maps themselves? I don’t care about actually tweaking my map, I just want to do stage 1 + LC + FFS without having to pay some other person to literally click a few buttons in software.

    Hey Sean,

    I definitely understand your frustrations with the timeline. Unfortunately, the initial implementation of the basic architecture for this program took a bit longer than expected. Now that it is ironed out, we are hoping to create the content for other platforms and get them up and going as soon as possible. The timeline presented is a very conservative estimate so we should have no issues meeting or beating those dates. Creating an additional “Lite” version of the software would push the actual project out even further.

I miss Porsche and VW on the tentative schedule. Are there no plans to release the new Accesstuner training and software for those platforms or is it simply to early to provide a date yet?

    Hey Marc, we do not currently plan to offer Accesstuner for the Porsche platform. If we see the demand for that product change, we can certainly re-consider. Volkswagen Accesstuner will likely come early 2017 after BMW and Mitsubishi are released.

      Oh no…Accesstuner was the main driver why I decided to go ‘the Cobb way’ with my 997tt. I guess I should have done better research when I bought in August, and realize ATR got removed already.
      Anyway, thanks for your answer and I still hope you come up with any solution for Porsche as well.

Looks like the Nissan Accesstuner is a little delayed. Is the Ford software still on track for Dec. 5? I was encouraged that the Mazda software came out on time, but now it seems we’re back to missing promised dates again.

    Hey Daniel, we did indeed see a bit of a delay with the GT-R Accesstuner release but it should be out next week (after Thanksgiving). The Ford Accesstuner release will likely be pushed to late December or very early January.

      I guess they weren’t conservative enough! You guys continue to over-promise and under-deliver, over and over and over and it’s truly baffling.

Hi,
when will ATR be available for the 2015 STI ADM ?
The reason I went COBB was for the ability to make changes to my car/map with the ATR but to have it pulled from under my/our noses like that hurts. I don’t mind paying for the training, I just need the software to make it happen PLEASE !!!
thanks

    Hi Craig! We actually don’t currently have a plan to offer Accesstuner for non-USDM vehicles. This is something we plan to scope moving forward so I hope we’ll have some good news for you guys soon!

    Hey Dustin, if you are having the car tuned by an Approved Protuner you do not need to download the Accesstuner software.

          Hey Dustin, sorry to hear you don’t have any good options closer to you. In that situation, E-Tuning becomes an option. Many of the more prominent Subaru Protuners offer E-Tuning services for most vehicle configurations. To find Protuners that offer E-Tuning you can simply filter by that requirement on our Dealer Locator linked below.
