If you're referring to the one sold by Shipyard Marine, I have it. The software is from Yamaha, the cable is a knockoff built by someone else. I bought it for use with my HPDI motor, which (knock wood) I haven't had an opportunity to use it yet. I did install it though, and the software is the real deal.
Not sure if the cable will limit it in any way. Now, the real question - will anyone other than a trained Yamaha mechanic really have any idea what to do with that thing? I have my doubts; I bought the service manual as well, and I'm no stranger to engines or electronic controls, but these motors are pretty frikkin complicated and I don't think I'm going to be very useful if push came to shove. I got it so I could routinely monitor some of the error codes that come out of it, to see if I've got potential problems on the horizon. I don't have the software on this machine, but I attached a generic picture of the software's main menu. When you hook the diagnostic cable up to the motor you get a different menu that lets you select different diagnostic functions (these are all covered, with screenshots, in the service manual).
I watched the tech do this as he took a download from the engine, then ran through the compression test (which is facilitated by the diagnostic software). Mine is a 2003 250HP HPDI.

The engine doesn't have the greatest reputation, which is why I opted for both the service manual and the diagnostic kit. Wasn't cheap - ran me about $400 altogether, and I don't plan on servicing the engine myself. The problem I have is that I'm not near any certified Yamaha mechanics, so if I do have an issue I can resolve myself I will save myself that much (if not more) over having to pay someone to drive in, or to have the boat towed.
