    It enables faster communications on certain engine controllers. Best used when reading live data from the measuring blocks to increase sample rate. Not all controllers support it.

    Am I right in saying Bruce, best used on single MB's as using 2-3 slows it down, not really noticeable but I did read that correctly somewhere didnt I?

    Hi Nigel,

    Correct. Sort of -

    If the all the measuring blocks are in the same group, then there should not be much difference in speed of update.

    When you view multiple groups, speed of the reports of values will drop drastically.

    So, if you want fastest results, look for a group that has all the parameters you want to view in it. This will give you the fastest results.
