    My best advice would be to carry out a full autoscan of the car and keep a copy of the original coding.

    It's just handy to know what the baseline was. If you start to get issues or you make a cock up at least you can go back.

    I normally print to PDF but not everyone has that facility, just use whatever suits you.

    or on a canbus car,

    on the main screen -> applications -> gateway installation list

    takes 3 seconds to do a quick scan

    Your method is ideal for a quick check Carl although I'm not 100% sure it works on MicroCAN.

    What I was suggesting is the OP made a backup of his current setup which does require a full auto scan.
