    Got the cobb accessport port v3 with Intake. Now that I flashed the map, do I need to load the map each time I start the car? Do I keep it connected at all time? How can I use as a digital turbo psi gauge? Thanks

    Did you read the manual at all?

    I have my own questions for you.

    1) what car/year
    2) what intake do you have
    3) what map did you flash and how did you flash it?

    Now for your questions:
    - Do I need to load the map each time I start the car?
    Nope, once a basemap is flashed, it's there till you change it. If you flash a realtime map, it'll be present in memory until you disconnect the car's battery.

    - Do I keep it connected at all time?
    You can with an apv3, the old v2s never shut off the display and would get screen burn. The V3 will shut itself off a few mins after you turn the car off, or if you hit the power button.

    - How can I use as a digital turbo psi gauge?
    Go to the Monitor or Gauges section and you can pick which data points you have displayed (You can display up to 6 simultaneously on the v3).
    Use the up/down buttons to pick the location you want the gauge to be at and hit the center button to select/change that gauge

    I have a 2013 WRX with k&n typhoon intake. Had it pro-tunes based on Cobb map right on the access port. Flashed it on the device itself too, everything installed without any errors or check engine afterwards. Test drive not done yet. Thank you for everything

    So you had the car pro-tuned with the K&N Typhoon installed then?

    You have the AP married to your ECU then, and I'm assuming flashed the map from the accessport to the ECU (likely done during the tune anyways).

    Did your tuner copy your MAF table into the economy and other built-in maps as well?

    Actually made I typo I have the v2 accesport but I'm still unable to have it display the boost readings in psi. All I can see is minus numbers going up and down in a unit I've never seen before?

    Did you look at the boost gauge with the car idling? If so, the gauge is simply reading manifold vacuum. You will never show boost or zero gauge pressure at idle. Since you're in Canada, I would imagine the AP is set to Metric units, in which case boost would typically read in Bar, and vacuum in mmHg.
