Data logging on the DASH2 PRO
The DASH2 PRO with the logging option has 8GB of data storage built in to the unit, this can be used for storing run files as well as lap timing files. Data logging is started and stopped by button press and files are downloaded over the USB port. Follow the list below to set up the logging as required.
Setting up a button to start / stop data logging
In the default configuration for the DASH2 PRO the Menu+Up button combination is set up to start/stop internal data logging. If it is required to move this to a different button follow the link here.
Configuring the data source
By default all data expect the four internal analogue channels and RPM is set to come from the serial port. To use the internal GPS data and the internal accelerometers, set up the variable source for the three accelerometer channels and the GPS receiver data to be take from units built in inputs and sensors.

By default the files are stored with the name RUN___rr, where rr is a number increasing from 01 to 99. In a directory with the name RTyymmdd, where yy is the last two digits of the year, mm is the month and dd is the day. This can be changed in the configuration software here.
Set up the channel storage rates
