I can't understand it either. Good luck with your cable. Freescan is a great program - you are gonna love it. It has a feature that will help you get the right comport and transfer (upload/download) speed selected.

This has been talked about many times before...Serial is still the largest type of connection used worldwide. :)

Also, the scanner requires a serial connection to properly interface with a GPS for the automatic system switching functions...
