Layout Structure / Global Settings / Home View

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.

Tutorial #2 – Top Status bar, Global Settings and the Home Screen.

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.

Battery

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.

Advanced Setup Example

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.
