Yeah as stated you will need a "good" 9pin to USB adapter, the Haltech is know to be picky with it. I got a good one from Walmart and a 9pin extension from RadioShack.
There are Haltech manuals to connect the Innovate wideband up. Haltech has a wideband also which is the Innovate so all the instructions apply.....If you are using a Innovate WB.
I did notice that the 1-5V didn't work on my set-up, I needed to use the 0-1V setting.
You will basically hook one of the analog outputs on the back of the gauge to the o2wire that should be included with your wiring harness for the Haltech. Then you will have a afr by volts reading on the Haltech data screen and can log them in for datalogging.
Depending on what wideband you have the afr by volts can be very accurate and helpful for tuning.

i've noticed that most of you guys are using the innovative wideband. i have an autometer....would the innovative work better with the haltech?
hey herb, could you update your sig? i got excited about your brakes but they have been sold.
I don't see any reason to get the Innovate if you have another brand.
The Innovate will datalogg, you can recalibrate it and you can program the analog outputs to what ever you want. And it will let you know if there are any problems with the sensor it self, the LEDS on the gauge and the gague face are customizable.
Only think I don't like about it is it doesn't match the others gauges in size.

Very picky! But I did get from ebay that works well.
I had about five different high end ones that I use on other things and they all didn't work on the Haltech.
The 9pin to USB connection is the biggest complaint about the Haltech.
Even Haltech recommended a high dollar one to get. But the one at Walmart was about $25 and worked good.
Only other problem that is also very common is the port problem. I fixed it by disabling all but one port on the laptop and have not had a problem again.
There is a fix for the port issue, I can walk you thru it if anyone needs it just pm me. The port issue is one of the biggest things but it's an easy fix. And many times it will ask you for a password (which you haven't set) when the ports are wrong.
-+ Click on Ports (COM & LPT)
Click on Port 1 or 2 or 3...5 Whichever doesn't say "ïn use"
(Or click enable in some systems)
And apply and OK all the way out of there.
Open Halwin sofware:
-Com port set upWhich ever comport you selected at the control panel select now under the halwin safware COM PORT 1, 2...5
-Apply <----- IMPORTANT!!!
Hope this helps with all your COM PORT issues.
The Haltech will not show you AFR it will only show you Volts. You need to know what Volt equals what AFR. You can have it display on the Gauge page within the Haltech that shows most of the vital readings, but again it is in Volts. It is alot easier to read the Innovate gauge.
You could also have the Innovate LC-1 and Haltech both connected to the laptop and have both the AFR and fuel map displayed for tuning.
I have all of the formulas to figure out what Volt equals what AFR and will find them and post them soon.
You only need the w/b connected to the Haltech for closed loop control and/or for data logging.
The data logging is pretty cool and let you know where there are issues and rich/lean spots on the map once you figure out how to use it.
