Question How to manually adjust fuel ratio? power commander?

im very new to the whole fuel injected thing as my last motor was carbed. anyways im a bit confused here. Lets say i buy a power commander, that is simply unit that i can load custom fuel maps onto....right? now i see the power commander USB, does that mean i can hook it to my laptop and manually control the A/F ratio or does that just mean i can load maps onto it(which if i had map editing software i COULD adjust my A/F ratio then.....:dontknow: )

The reason i ask is because last time i went to colorado my bike ran like poo. this was still the carbed motor so i know it was the altitude/thin air. Lets say i had a FI bike and i went to high altitude +10,000'. would the bikes computers automatically compensate for the thinned out air or would i need to load a custom map/adjust A/F for the higher altitude? This could be done with a power commander?

You can adjust the map with a Power Commander.
However you do not have to adjust for altitude, change in temp, etc., your bikes sensors and ECU will do that on their own.
