Default Forscan applications

I thought a list of useful changes (with description) using Forscan would be handy.
Things like...
1. Eliminating the "double honk"
2. Disable or change to type 2 DRL setting

I am sure there are many more. Please add yours with a description of where to find and how to modify the values.

DRL normally means Day Time Running Lights
Type 2 I have no clue about.

per the manual there are 2 types of DRL configurations."Type-1 Conventional" (Non-Configurable, this is the type we have in Canada) "Type-2 Configurable" (this type may be found in USA trucks). Type-2 will enable the DRL check box in the Information Display which is currently not there in our Canadian trucks (Type-1)
