Hi John, |
I have a 2 channel Pico which I have had for a number of years. This is used on a mobile basis and sits in the back of the van permanently connected to a lap top with the leads attached. So if it is required, it is quick and easy to use. I won't go into detail how good it is because that has been covered in previous posts except to say that I concur with the comments made. Also, I find the customer is quite impressed (who normally sits on my shoulder) when I show him what the trace should be, and what the trace actually is. This gives him the confidence on the diagnostic work carried out.
Incidently, I also use a "quick look" tool first which graphs MAF, CTS, ATS, TPS, HO2 etc which is the Creader V. This is an inexpensive piece of kit which I find handy and very quick to use. If I see something which needs detailed analyis, then PICO comes into operation.
However, when I first mentioned Creader V a few weeks ago, it caused howls of derision from certain quarters!
So, I can only concur with the previous inputs that PICO is a very good option.
