using scan tool to help with tuning ?'s

I am still pretty new to EFILive and although I have made a few tunes I am still kinda in the dark about useing scan tool to help with tuning. I know how to select what PID's I want and how to record data but I am not sure how to correlate it and tuning. How do I know where to add fuel or timing or boost? Whats the easiest way to set things up? Do you look at the gauge panel the graph or just the data page? How do you run your logs ie: just driveing around or full throttle blast from stop to wherever? I also dont understand the maps at all can someone explain them to me?
I know I am missing a big part of this and I know this will help out emensly when i tune so any help is appreciated. THANKS

well i have been trying to get this to work all day and I cant so i emailed the efilive team my log and tune and theycouldnt get it to work either so they are now looking into it. I will let you all know how they fix it.
I know it sounds strange, but it makes me feel a little bit better that we were not missing something really stupid. The EFILive crew are top notch, I am sure they will figure it out. I will be curious to know what is happening.
I am having the same problem. :(
I'm still waiting on efi support to get back with me. I'll let ya know what happens. stay tuned
Update is that it's now a "known issue" for the LBZ Public BETA.

We haven't mapped the requirements for this function for LBZ - everyone who tries to perform will have the same issue.

Ross is hoping to have resolved this issue and have an update to download before the end of the weekend.

now thats top notch service thanks EFI team
O.K, the LBZ linking file is done.
I cannot put a zip file on DP, so click on THIS LINK to download the new file (9K).
You just need to unzip the file into the directory -
\Program Files\EFILive\V7\Configuration

Then take note of the PID listed next to each table (see screen shot).
Select that PID in the scantool to get the table linked to the logged data.
As shown in that shot below, you need to be logging SAE.RPM to track the RPM axis.

I added B1102 to the Cal_link.txt file. This was unlinked and should work in the tune file now.

GREAT I love this place, Ross and co. you guys are awsome
