Pages of wiring diagrams are plain, black and white. Although many people compliment the wiring diagram of MItchell1PRO, I found it useless. If they create pages for each component or system, a high-lightning feature is not necessary in the first place. Combining all circuits in one page doesn’t have any benefits, and as time goes on, it will be much harder because of advancing and more complicating technology. Let’s make things clear, wiring diagrams of Mitchell1diy are like Alldatadiy’s, which I found it more useful and easier to see than PRO’s.
