With the flight recorder function, you can record parameters in real time while you are driving a vehicle. During recording, you can, with a press of a button, highlight the specific error so that you can investigate the detected error at a later time. CDP+ is equipped with built-in memory thus removing the need to bring a computer.
To create a Flight Recorder session, you will first need to select the parameters/real time data that you want to record. You start by opening the customised data list in the real time data menu in the diagnosticprogram. You can choose to create a session for all system types (Engine, ABS, AC etc.), but only for one system at a time, as the vehicle can´t communicate with multiple systems at the same time. When you have selected the parameters, they will be tested on the vehicle to verify that they are valid data. Your parameter selections are then transferred to CDP+ and a Flight Recorder session is created. Previously recorded data and templates are deleted upon creation of the new session. You can then disconnect CDP+ from the computer and vehicle, and start the Flight Recorder when you are test driving the vehicle. Multiple sessions/recordings can be saved on CDP+ and you can select the sessions you want to upload and save on your computer.
DURING TEST DRIVEStart a new session by pressing and holding the button on CDP+ until the indicator turns yellow and CDP+ makes a short audible tone. The yellow light then starts to rotate to indicate that data is being recorded. To easily find the part of the data where the symptom occurred you can earmark symptoms in the session. To do this, briefly press the Flight Recorder button.
