I never had a problem with the tech mate. They made one for mercruiser, all the data is available in it.

While I admit I have no idea with a lot of Rinda stuff, where I click on the button to see codes and there is nothing, Rinda is worthless. Don't waste your $. There is a test to see the coils, so I did it. 1-4 is testable, 5-8 Rinda says "not existing". Supper pissed and frustrated. Then I broke the plastic housing on the ECM connecting wires ( 12 -16 pins, left side, ) and I can put them back. It was stuck, used screw driver to get it off and I broke it. OK that's on me, but no clue how to get the pins back to the right spot.
So, when I install the Rinda thing, there is not even an option for merc. Crusader volve etc. nothing for Merc. I called before I paid, they told me it's ALL good. I will have one hellava conversation in the AM.
Troll, you better pay someone to work on your boat!

I didn't get the Tachmate, got the stuff for the laptop. Should be better with more features. I guess NOT.

I asked the OP, Paradox, and made that quite clear. This is why people should start their own threads. Ugghh.

WHAT?
What does the OP has to do with my headaches? I am the OP, just on a different computer. Why not start a thread about a problem? This is why we pay for this to get input. Yours make no f' ing sense.
