Hi there. I have taken the plunge and will be downloading Forscan in the next day or so. I am very impressed with what I have seen on this site, but a lot of it goes over my head at the moment.
Is there such a things as a guide on how to use Forscan? Initially, all I will be using it for, is to set up the DAB retro fit that I will be doing. I am just waiting to pick up a DAB module, then I will be installing it all. My 2011 Mondeo has the MCA headunit so it can support DAB, it just needs the DAB hardware to be added.

I got a check engine light. Everything was good as far as fluids and gauges. I picked up a reader and downloaded the software. Identified the issue as an EVAP in the emissions system.

Now as far as configuring certain things, I'm at a loss. I don't have the Central Configuration tab showing up.

I've spent the better part of the morning poking around and can't seem to find it. I ponied up the $$ for the paid, 1 year license. It's just $10 and worth it so the developers can get paid.

Good luck.

I watched the video on module settings backups. The thing is, I don't see all the modules that are in the video. I only have maybe 6 or 8 modules.

It might be all the vehicle has.
