DMD2 Layout Structure

DMD2 is compromised by 3 main areas, the static information top status bar, the central active view and the bottom menu.
Learning these three terms will be important as you progress in the manual.

Top Status Bar

The top status bar shows simple indicators about the overall devices status. From the left to the right you have the battery indicator, the GPS precision, the online status and the date and time. They include icons and text and while the text shows the actual values the icons change color to help you quickly identify undesirable states.


Shows you your current battery percentage and if it is charging (plugged to a power source) or not. Works just like the stock Android battery indicator.

GPS Precision

Shows the GPS precision in meters (lower the value the better), example: a 2 meter precision means that your current location can have an error of around 2m.

Online Status

Displays if you are currently connected to the internet (either by wifi, carrier data or hotspot). It monitors your connection status and updates accordingly.

Date and time

Current system date and time. You can change to 24h format in the global settings. Displays the values formatted with the device localisation settings.

Bottom Menu / Main View

To change the current active view you use the bottom menu, the current active view can be identified in the bottom menu by the icon color (accent color for the active one).
You can view the currently available app sections (views) bellow. You should notice some are free and others are paid.


A highly configurable dashboard, where you can setup each section with different widgets, either DMD2 widgets or external widgets. Here you can concentrate all the relevant information you need.

Free App Section


A map screen optimised for adventure and off-road, includes topographic maps and many map options. Focused on managing, displaying, recording GPX files and providing many useful tools.

Paid App Section


Still a very common practice among adventure and off-road riders. Our digital roadbook allows you to load pdf files, setup 3 instrument panels with any value and control it all from the handlebar

Paid App Section

OBD2 Sensors

Connect your device to your vehicle with a Bluetooth dongle (Elm327 – we recommend the OBDLink LX) and get real-time data from your ECU.

Paid App Section

App Drawer

See all your installed apps, launch them or add them to favourites. Includes app filter where you can hide apps that you do not want to be displayed and sorting options.

Free App Section

Global Settings

These settings are the main app settings, they usually have an impact on the whole app. Themes and colors, screen options, localisation settings, notifications and more are all here.

Free App Section

If you do not use any of the sections you can disable them and they will be gone from the bottom menu. You can also change the bottom menu order (more on this later).

Start setting it up

We recommend that you start by setting the basic options like localisation, accent color and screen lock.
If you are sure about which views you will use and which views you wont use, go to the bottom menu editor and edit it as you like.

In the video:

  • We head over to the Global Settings view
  • We set our preferred accent color (green in the example)
  • We then set our desired localisation settings like 24h format, imperial units and Fahrenheit instead of the default celsius units.
  • Then we move to the “Edit Bottom Menu” option and sort the menu and disable a view (in the example we disable the Roadbook view)

Notice: To sort the menu just long press any of the entries and then drag them to the new position just like in the video.

Full Advanced Setup

If you are already confortable with DMD2 you can also check the next video which is a complete first run and setup done and narrated by our lead developer.

The purpose of this video is to show you the different available settings and how you can setup DMD2.

In this case you will see it from the point of view of the person who actually developed it, how does John (our lead dev) usually sets up his DMD2 instance for his type of riding.

If you have some free time you should watch this, you will probably discover new ways of using DMD2 and new settings that you never noticed before.
