The following settings can be performed:
Memory module off:No data are saved.
Save vehicle with client data:After each exhaust emissions test, you are prompted to assign the test record to a client or to create a new client. The record is rejected if no details are given.
Save vehicle without client data:Only the record with the vehicle data is saved.

As already mentioned, during data recording you can set markings/highlightings in the form of trigger points in the data. In this way you create the “blue” vertical marking lines in the data display (1). These markings are set simultaneously in all the data lists so as to ensure that the event moment in all the data is comprehensible and retraceable.
Click once with the left mouse button to create a vertical “red” line in the graphical representation. The created “event horizon” can be moved and reflects the current measured values. The event horizon is simultaneously displayed in all the graphs, regardless of which form
of data representation has been selected. This ensures that the data are comparable.
Click once with the right mouse button in the graphical representation to make the line disappear again.
