Additional Config Option for DASH 4 Shift Lights

Postby evo_ufo » Wed Apr 18, 2012 10:09 pm

In the DASH4PRO configuration software there are 5 options for configuring the shift lights.

7 stages:- 4 green, 2 red, flashing
7 stages:- 3 green, 3 red, flashing
3 stages:- All green, All red, all flashing
4 stages:- green, green, red, flashing from inside
4 stages:- green, gree, red, flashing from outside

Please could we have some additional modes where it is possible to use exclusively Red or Green, or alternatively have the green as the more significant.

At the angle which the Dash is mounted in my car then the green LED are significantly easier to see than the red and would prefer if it was possible to use these exclusively. Perhaps others find the opposite and would prefer to use the red exclusively.

And while I'm seconding it, here's another idea:

If the green/red LEDs support it, it would be great to have a yellow option too (both green and red on at the same time).

And there was us thinking 5 options would be enough to keep everyone happy... with any other manufacturer you would have got 1 option and that would be it ;o)

We've already put in a request to increase the options for these, and it will be available in a future release of the firmware.

Kind regards,

RT support

No, sorry.

We've got a very major update of the DASH4PRO firmware current being tested, this includes full CAN support, more fonts, performance measurement system and lot more - but the shift lights are the same.

Bump to this - maybe we can revisit this option, to have all green shift lights?? The green colour is of course far more visible/apparent to the human eye, this would really help for the open-cockpit usage as I have.

Since I'm already driving so many (bugfix) changes to the Dash4 config software anyway... ;)
