I'm sure people use it. What do you mean is it worth it? I would hope that you're not buying AP just for an anti-theft feature. As for stealing the car with the anti-theft on, the thief would have to know that the AP is being used and would have to know how to clear the map. I doubt most thieves would be that knowledgeable.

all a thief would need to do is reset the ECU to by-pass. Why you ask? anti-thieft mode is a Real Time Map not a Base Map so resetting the ECU would clear the map.

That true, but how many theif's will reset the ECU before they jack your car?

Well. .if you think about it, the first thing most thieves do is disconnect the battery until they can disable your alarm. Then they reconnect it to start your car. This would mean that they have now reset your ECU.

Unless you reflash the anti-theft base map and run your realtime map. Anyone try that? Or flash the anit-theft base map if you store your vehicle during the winter.

I wouldn't flash an anti-theft map as a base map for a few reasons. First, if your battery dies and you don't have your AccesPort on you, you will not be able to start your car.

Secondly, some functions are determined by your base map, such as CEL removal and OL/CL transistion fix for MY04+. The Anti-theft does not contain these functions and by using it as your base map, you will not have these features.

I suppose it's OK for storing your vehicle for the winter. But the reason I bought a WRX is so I could drive it in the winter

This topic is also being covered here in Audio, Video, and Security

While AP realtime map for anti-theft is a good thing, it is my understanding that it could be defeated by battery disconnect & system drain which would revert back to whatever basemap you're running.

The best defense against theft is layers....stock alarm + AP + fuel cut/autolok/other
