    innovative is a better tuning device to use while tuning only.
    aem is a better 'gauge' to leave in the car for reference while driving

    I have/use an innovative for tuning, and then pull it out. wideband o2's don't last forever

    Innovative is much more flexible; can output both analog and digital at the same time so can effectively be a "permanent" narrowband O2 replacement while still using it for tuning.

    Go with the Innovative LC-1, it is much more flexible tuning wise and I've had mine since around 2006 and it is still working like new. I use it with Crome Pro and it works great.

    AEM has a non-gauge wideband out now.

    "Widebands don't last forever" is a funny comment. People repeat some old info w/out fully understanding it and pretty soon it's common albeit false knowledge. The truth is that widebands now have a longer service life than standard O2 sensors.
