    Difference between PCE-1 module and Charger in Etube

    Is there any difference in programming or diagnostic capability between using the Shimano PCE1 Module and the BCR2 with E-tube sortware for diagnostics or customizing?

    You can plug directly in to individual components w/ the PC and use 'single component' mode. This can really help diagnosing certain problems.

    The PCE1 can only diagnose individual parts, the BCR2 can only talk to an entire Di2 network at once. Different tools for different circumstances....generally it takes a magnificent $hit the pants f#ckup to need the PCE1. TBH my LBS doesn't even own one.

    The PCE can definitely connect to/diagnose the whole bike. The big advantage of it is that can do individual components and the BC can't.
