You have a *something* to read the TICC output it does not just do it all 
on it’s own.

The same something at the same time gets the same data on the same
pulse to correct it. That’s real time. That device does the math for the 
correction and presents it instantaneously. That is very much real time.

Not by default You go through the 390 pages of their manual and eventually
find the bits to turn this and that on. When you do, those magic bits will enable
the data on a T version and will not enable it on a non-T version. At least that’s
the way it’s worked since the LEA-4T …
