Can't for the life of me locate a changelog file on the downloaded file or the Promax site Llew, it does tell you whats new when you are actually going through the download .... said something like a few minor bug fixes and something else. I'll email support and ask them where the info might be found.

OK buddy. I'll update anyway and see if I notice any changes, if they're relevant to anything I use the tester for.

Not cheap..
Think that's a good price for what is a nigh on new meter, knocks the ones he says he has into a cocked hat (in my opinion), but I guess he's used to using the others.

At just over a grand, somebody got a bargain if in good order.
