Programming GM esc with GM Commander

Has anybody done this? I am looking at getting a GM Commander so I can. Is it easy to do? My main question is can the older esc's be programmed? I assume they cannot.

I have a gm commander and it does program your esc. It works kinda like your old novak pit wizard. The Charger on the other hand is top notch and I would not get rid of it. I got mine used on Ebay then sent it in to Horizon Hobbies for a tune up, It looks and operates like new and I love it. I would highly recommend the Commander just for the charging features and if you have a gm esc it becomes that much better.
Hope this helps

Hi Shookie,

Which charge mode you are using? e.g. Peakchg, Tempchg or GMVIS charge mode?
