Scanning Configuration

Modified on Fri, 08 Dec 2023 at 11:08 AM


Although you can do a quick scan with the default settings, you can tailor the information retrieved from the vehicle to suit the task at hand. A little configuration can give you much better troubleshooting information and can make the presentation of that information much more suited to your personal working style.

Follow these steps:

1.When preparing to scan a new vehicle, connect to the vehicle briefly before you begin configuration. This will allow VCM Scanner to create a profile for the vehicle and attempt to load vehicle-specific parameters. See Creating a Vehicle Profile for instructions.
2.Add channels to retrieve the data you want to view and/or log. Although there are a few standard channels set up by default, you will need to add a channel for any additional parameter that you wish to monitor and any external device connected to your HP Tuners interface or to your computer's serial port. See Channels for instructions.
3.Modify the displayed layouts (gauges, graphs, and charts) to include the parameters you need to see. Refer to Layouts for more information.
