Tuner for Mac?
 
Is there an ECU Tuner out there that is compatible with the Mac OS?
I have a Macbook pro and want to be able to use it to tune my vehicle

I also have a Mac, and just ordered a tuner.
I have Windows XP through VMWare Fusion, which is how I'm planning on running their software. I may also try Wine. Currently I've been using WineBottler http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/
It works for some software, and I've been using it for my company's software. It normally works for very simple programs. I'll try it out when I get my tuner and post my results.

Most of the time, for every pc app, there's a better Mac app. :D
Now, I think there is an app for tuning, but I'd have to look into it better.

Son of a bitch.

I read engadget, how did I not see that?
Anyway, if they're making something for iOS, they can probably port it to Macs with ease. iOS and Mac OS make use of many of the same technologies (that's why the Mac app store has so many ported iOS apps).

Initially the plan for the iTSX is iOS only. This may change but it is still going to be a while before the device is even available to the public.

What is the ETA onto the market? and will it do everything an xcal3 will do? Thanks

No eta at the moment and there will not be one until it goes through our test department.

Initially no, it will not do everything the X3 does. Because it is new I really can't say too much about it.

What I tell most MAC guys is to find a 50-80.00 pawned XP or Vista and use that just for tuning
