Default MSLabs Can Module Settings for ScanGauge II

Couldn't find this information anywhere so posting this here so it gets documented.

Problem: After purchasing a ScanGauge II to replace my Ultragauge that would not connect to Rev's Can Module, I noticed that while the ScanGauge was able to connect, the refresh time for each gauge was inconsistent and in general very slow (~5-30 seconds).

Solution: I played around with CAN Broadcasting and CAN Realtime Broadcasting parameters and settled on the values shown below.
This resulted in a fairly consistent refresh time of around .5-1 second, with the refresh rate on the ScanGauge itself set to fast.
If anyone else has experience with better settings, I'm all ears.

FYI: This is on Rev's MS3 Basic, FW 1.4.0.

Thank you for sharing and its good to know that it works well with the ScanGauge for you.

Btw you don't need to enable "CAN Broadcasting", only the "CAN Realtime Data Broadcasting".

And I would increase everything to at least 10Hz. It doesn't hurt anything.
