OperatingTheDASH3 / EditingButtonFunctions

Editing Button Functions (3 Button funcs)

The UP, DOWN, and SELECT buttons and MENU+UP, MENU+DOWN and MENU+SELECT button combinations can be programmed to perform many different ‘shortcut’ functions in normal display mode. This does not change the function of the buttons from their standard purpose in menu display mode.

To change a button function:

1. Press MENU button to enter the menu display mode.

2. Use UP/Down button to navigate to the menu item “3 Button Funcs” and then press the SELECT button.

3. You will be asked to press the button you wish to change the function of. Press either the SELECT, UP or DOWN button. Alternatively you can hold down the MENU button, press and release one of the other buttons and then release the MENU button. This has the effect of selecting the MENU + UP/DONW/SELECT button combination.

4. The display will change to show which button is selected (on the first line) and the current function assigned to that button (on the second line). For an instance if you select the DOWN button, and currently it has the “Previous Screen” function been assigned to it then the display would look as follows.

Then use UP/DOWN buttons to select a function to assign to this button. Second line of the display changes as you select the function.

Following are the shortcut functions that can be assigned to the SELECT, UP or DOWN buttons or MENU+SELECT, MENU+UP or MENU+DOWN button combinations.

  • Next Screen
Scrolls through the screens in ascending order.
  • Previous Screen
Scrolls through the screens in descending order.
  • Start/stop logging
Starts/stop the DL1/DL2 logging function from the DASH3
  • Add track marker
Manually add the track marker at present GPS coordinates
  • Show Min/Max

  • Toggle night mode
Toggle night mode on and off. The brightness of the LCD backlight and LED lights are dimmed in night mode to suit low light conditions
  • None
If the button is assigned with this function, nothing happens when you press the button outside in normal display mode

5. Press SELECT to assign the selected function to the button. Then DASH3 will be return to the normal display mode.

6. To cancel assigning the button function, press MENU button.
