Is this what you mean?

"Make and store up to 10 rewritable special codes
to send to the vehicle computer"
I guess that is a way to set up certain perameters and save them? IDK.

That seems like an ok product to me, I would only ever use it for a scan tool though to clear codes. I don't ever trust all in one digital gauges like that. Not sure that would even work on our trucks?
Anyone use one?

i have one....i use it for the trip computer and gas millage mainly. it tells you how many gallons you are going to need on the next fill up and it has never been more then .5 gallons off after an entire tank. it is also nice that it records your speed and millage with bigger tires, just makes life eaier.

Really?
How much did you pay for yours? I thought you had to go the AE route to do those tests accurately. Wouldn't be the first time I was wrong...I just didn't think you could do it that cheap...

Since it does more than a scan tool can and it is a multi-function gauge, I think is is worth it. I have been thinking about one but I already have AE.
