The TCD Compare Tool is a handy software feature that allows you to compare, import and examine the differences between two TCDs. This makes it quick and easy to spot the changes to the major tables and gives the user the ability to import the compared TCD's table into their current TCD's table.

You also have the ability to toggle the compare ON/OFF right on the ITEM you are viewing. Simply right click on any ITEM and select the “Compare” box in the list OR you can select the “Show Comp” check box on the Compare TCD window for the ITEM you would like to compare.
All of the items that are different between the Compare and Current TCDs will show up RED.
The show difference option allows the user to display the difference between the Current and Compare TCDs right on the ITEM table.
The “Injetor Battery Offset” table (below) is showing the difference between the Current and Compare TCDs.
The “Injector Close Timing” table (below) is showing the comparison BUT you can also see the cells that are different between your Compare and Current TCDs which are shown in RED.
The Import Item button allows you to directly import the selected ITEM from the Compare TCD into the Current TCD. So, if there is a tale or parameter you would like to pull in from the Compare TCD, simply use the “Import Item” button to speed up the process!
