    I am not voting because i don't think it is fair to vote for innovate because I have never tried the others. I have had a lc1 3 plus years of great service and a lm1 that just died on me although going through the manual lead me to a possible cause for the failure. (leaving it pluggrd to the lighter during startup.) Innovate products will get the job done. I have built a serial cable for a lm1 so I'll most likely go that route again.

    This poll is simply to indicate what WB controllers are in use, so there is no issue with direct comparisons. It's just to show people what is used and what is likely to have some sort of local support via this forum.

    I see the way the poll is worded now, so I voted. I use a lm1 with a homemade serial cable. worked great till I got a error 08 the other day, flow chart says the sensor is bad, but new sensors don't help any and the Innovate forum is down!

    IIRC someone here "fixed" an LM-1 by reflashing the Innovate firmware into it.

    LC-1s. But they don't last as long as I'd hoped. Just had a replacement sensor delivered.

    I've seen a lot of posts about reliability of the Innovate products. I have two LC-1's sitting here waiting to be installed and I'm sort of thinking twice about it. In my previous car I had a PLX M250 (now retired product) but that was rock solid!

    Per previous post I'd go the FJO w/ NTK sensor route if money was no object

    If you're willing to spend just a little bit more to get actual pro quality tools, the ECM products are all > * on the list here. ECM makes the widebands used by GM, Ford, Chrysler and the EPA for all their testing. I personally use an ECM LambdaPRO with analog output, but I think I'm going to pick up an ECM AFM1500 with the serial output (which is actually cheaper than the LPro) for use with the V2 cable. As an added bonus, they have specially discounted pricing for tuners, with even better discounts for people who have taken my classes. You will NOT find a better wideband than ECM on the planet.

    V2 does support serial Lambda from the AFM1500, it's been tested by Howard @ Redline Motorsports.
