ScanningWhenever you wish to collect data from the vehicle you will need to scan it. You can use the space bar to start and stop scanning or you can use the play and stop buttons on the tool bar.
|Space Bar||Start and stop scanning|
Log FilesLog files, or .hpl files, are files that have saved frame data as well as comments and markers from a previous scan session. You can save your log files for future reference, or to share with others.
Comments and MarkersDuring the scanning process you can use the 'C' and 'M' keys to insert Comments and Markers.
|C||Insert a comment at the current frame|
|M||Insert a marker at the current frame|
Export DataAfter you have finished scanning or after you have opened up an existing .hpl VCM Scanner log file, you have the option to export it as a comma delimited .csv file. You can open a .csv file with notepad, WordPad, or Microsoft Excel. Exporting to a .csv file is convenient if you wish to share your log file with those that do not have HP Tuners. To share your log file with those that do have HP Tuners, all you need to send them is the .hpl file and they will be able to open up the log file in their own version of HP Tuners VCM Scanner.
