Yo I just bought one of these and I am getting a default reading of 0.L

Is this the general rule of thumb?

Check the unit that you are testing the 0.2 difference with, maybe the cables have the 0.2 difference.
My one is measuring fine, 1:1 with the Vamo and 1:1 with my industrial ohm-meter that is showing 0.2 resistance if I measure the probes with the cables.

Only if you don't account for the unit's internal resistance of .2

It's very simple.. Short the connector, record the value it shows (.2). Now you're fine as long as you remember to subtract .2 from everything you measure.
