"What do the temperature offsets mean?"

-20C offset
-30C offset

IICE Air is factory set to -20C offset.

Important note: Without the -10C adjustment, the device will not work with the future products.

At the -20C setting it performs identical to these devices:

Good question. The four settings are offsets of the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor input to the ECU.

For example, if the outside air temperature is 30C/86F, and the IICE Air is set to a -10C offset, then the ECU thinks the air temperature is 20C/68F.

30C air temp - 10C negative offset = 20C ECU input.

The ECU gets a 'negative offset' air temperature input, and thinks the air is a little denser than it actually is.

It responds by richening the mixture during 'leading throttle acceleration'.

And if you ask me what all that means I'm gonna smack you and point you to the first post in this thread, to the list of links to informative posts.
