The Home view is usually the first entry in the bottom menu.
It is compromised of 5 different areas where you can load different DMD2 widgets and even external apps widgets.
This is an example Home Screen setup and on the next image you can see the different available sections that you can configure.
Our objective for the Home view was to create a view where you could concentrate all the information that is important to you. Things like notifications, OBD sensors, Trip Information, Media Controls and even Widgets from other apps.
Panel Types and Sizes
As you can see, different panels have different sizes, and this means that while some widgets can adapt to all sizes others are only available to certain panel sizes.
You should also notice that the LEFT and RIGHT panels are different from the others in a sense that each one of them can hold and cycle through 3 different loaded widgets.
Left And Right Panels
You can cycle through the 3 loaded widgets using the top arrows or using your controller.
You can view the current position by looking at the bottom indicator (the 3 dots in the bottom of each panel).
Left and Right in your controller will cycle the left panel.
Up and Down in your controller will cycle the right panel.
Notice: Only the Left and Right panels can be interacted with a remote controller, not only cycle the widgets but also perform widget actions if available.
To select each widget in the Home View you need to use the settings button.
After clicking the home settings button you will see this Widget Manager interface where you can click on each section to trigger the widget selector dialog.
For each section you can select from a list of widgets, this list is always growing and we will keep adding new widgets.
In the video:
In this video we randomly select different widgets for different positions, notice the different available widgets for each of the home panels.
Some widgets required further setup, for example the apps shortcuts requires you to select the apps you want to add to it. Same thing for Sensors widgets where you have to select each sensor for the available slots.
Some widgets also include actions, for example the Trip Information widget will include a “Reset” button to reset the Trip.
