FORScan – Modifications via configuration


I’m trying to collect all the information that has to do with the MK4 and the module programming via the configuration menu. With each new FORScan version, more and more points can be easily programmed using the so-called configuration. Not every point that is available actually works with our focus or several points have to be changed, sometimes in different modules.

If you have any remarks or comments, I would be happy to hear from you.

 As always, everything is at your own risk!
