The APEX controller is all canbus. You can buy carrier's usb cable but there isn't much you can't do right through the display or usbstick. I passed on the $200 cable and went for the much more reasonable $75 usb stick.

thanks IRMechanik ,
so you can't configure your own USB stick like in Wintrac or Thermoserv

nope, carrier made sure of that. I've heard guys can rewrite blank pcmcia cards to be recognized and download or program cards but I haven't heard of anyone figuring out how to do it with the USB stick. Someone will figure it out eventually.
