Re: PicoScope Basic???

Cheers Steve. I have upgraded my pc on the scope trolley and its now fast loading, just my toughbook cf18 which I use in the field is now lagging so a basic would be ideal. Also I know a few semi scopers panic as soon as they open up the Pico software due to too many functions comparing to a handhel...

PicoScope Basic???

Hi all, just had a quick thought today. As silly as it may sound is there a possibility of looking into having a 'Basic' software level with all the preset probes ie volts, amps conversion, trigger but no functions like maths channel, serial encoding ect... as i sometimes feel there is too many func...

Re: Considering buying the Pico kit.

I wish you all the best but for true automotive diagnosis success a mechanical UPK is a must. Maybe partner up with a good mechanic whose electrical UPK is not that strong. A good scantool is a must, this depends on whether you want to work on one or a few brands then dealer level is the way to go (...
