can do quite a bit with it depending on what model you have and if you have the full version or just the basics. AU2/3 you limited to a degree, but i can't say how much. BA/BF i have just started on. have reset faults & done the two keys. there is more you can do but i'm limiting myself so i don't change a wrong setting lol.

the swith is for changing from one system level to another (not a really good explanation i know) altho i think i read somewhere that it needs to work seamesly (but that might have been for FG?) i did mod one awhile back & didn't seem to do anything ? but i'm still new at this.

hopefully someone with a lot more knowledge will chime in and fill in blanks.

also go to forscan web site & have a look around

Thanks mate, I installed Forscan but I haven't plugged it into the car yet - it said to make sure the switch is in the position for whichever canbus or another, but the switch isn't labelled so I guess I'll try it one way and then if it fails I'll click it the other way :lol:
