Edge CTS Help

Ok, I am traveling south tomorrow to pick up the new rig so after reading here I bought the CTS to check things over prior to handing over the cash.

Well, I wanted to familiarize myself on usage so I plugged it into my Ram truck and then started hitting the yes I agree and then freaked out as I wasn't sure if it would stick to the ram and not work tomorrow on the 350 so I unplugged the cable.

Did I mess anything up?

Also, I don't own a PC only Apple products so is that going to hinder me too?

Thanks,
Keith

You can use it on different vehicles, it will a ask you to enter the vin, and confirm. It is best to update it once you receive it, so all the available pid's will come up. You should probably go and hook it up and make sure you didn't hang it up by yanking the plug.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.
