If it doesn't do bi-directional why would I want it?

I guess I'll give those dudes a shout. If they give me a crap product they're close to where I'm from so I can have somebody get face to face.

I went to there web site you posted and downloaded there free consel. How is it these guys are different than the other scanners. I couldent find much info about this company! I did find a post about how a fellow could not time his vortec with the software, he was offered his money back! There seems to be a garantee if you dont like it return it in 30 days!

My intrest is to tune cam offset! In Vortec'*! Around here its 75 bucks to have it done.

Has anyone used this software?
If so is it user friendly?

Yes! Thats it!

I got these directions from them!: In software in Data page, press Enhance in menu. In the new window select Possible then Send button.

Then just fill in where your needs are! Its about 6 screens deep in the broswer!
