Start-up screen

Start-up screen of the device is an operating condition in which no measurements are made. To get the start-up screen from any operating mode of the tripmeter press for six seconds the MENU button.

Purpose of the start-up screen:

DSC_0286_1.jpg 

The status bar

The lower part of the screen serves to display auxiliary information for the user. It displays:

Signalling LEDs

GPS

LED indicates GPS mode - flashing red means signal search, continuous red means the presence of a GPS signal and the number of satellites is in the range of 5 to 9 satellites, which means that GPS signal is sufficient for tripmeter operation. Blue LED indicates a signal of the highest precision - the number of satellites is greater than nine.

When GPS LED is not lit, this means:

RUN

Lights up with the complete shutdown of the display, as a sign that the operation of the device continues

REP

LED indicates connection to the repeater, and by triple blinking indicates that command is sent to an external device such as Garmin.

P1 - P2

Indicate operation of pulse inputs. When the input is enabled, the corresponding LED lights red. When the input receives road pulses LED turns blue.

On/Off switch

Tripmeter does not have a turnoff switch. After switching on it is ready to work. In the situations unrelated to direct work, in the absence of voltage in the yellow cable ("ignition"), it goes into sleep mode. You can connect the yellow cable to power supply and that will disable this functionality.

After turning on the power supply:

Opening the configuration menu

Tripmeter settings

Menu and sub-menu are used for setting tripmeter functions.

Usage

Buttons with arrows serve to browse through the lines of sub-menu, the OK button changes the value or causes entry to the next sub-menu.

  • Calibration-settings + entering - enter the submenu (see below)
  • Calibration-measurement / auto measurement from GPS

- enter sub-menu (see below)

  • Pulses - YES if the tripmeter is to use route pulses from the vehicle or sensor; NO if it is to work exclusively with GPS
  • GPS d – choose YES if the GPS system is to take part in the calculation of the route; NO if you want to use only the route pulses.

When you set pulses - YES and GPS d - YES up to 5 km / h, the tripmeter will count the route from pulses, and above that speed from GPS.

  • Resolution of the road – enter submenu (see below)
  • Delete ODO after routing azimuth - set to YES so that ODO will be always deleted after reaching waypoint (only with the purchased Azimuth function, having selected the mode: azimuth rel. + Tripmeter)

Vehicle calibration coefficient - definition

It is the number of route pulses counted from the vehicle corresponding to driving 1000 m. The calibration coefficient can be:

  • measured along the stretch of any length, but enter to tripmeter the number of pulses corresponding to driving 100m (when you have measured the number of pulses over a distance of 100 meters, multiply the measured value by10 and enter it to the tripmeter)
  • enter a known coefficient (e.g. measure the circumference of the wheel and then knowing the number of pulses per one turn calculate the coefficient for 1000 m)
  • [gps] measure by auto-calibration using the built-in GPS module
  • match the coefficient to the length of the driven route (see the section: Usage)

DSC_0306_21.jpg

Sub-menu Calibration- setting + entering

Operation

Arrow buttons serve for browsing through the sub-menu lines, the OK button changes the value or activate edition field.

In the Multi k mode - ON use the arrows to select the ratio and then use the RUN button to set as active.

  • Multi k – set YES if you want to work with more than one calibration coefficient, set NO if you want to work with a single calibration coefficient
  • Entering a known coefficient – using arrows place the cursor on the field into which you want to enter a new value. The OK button activates entering mode, arrows change the value of the number, short OK moves the cursor further, CLR deletes the field and moves back the cursor, prolong OK saves the value which is confirmed by blinking value.
Selection of calibration coefficient - only Multi k mode is switched on.

Use the arrows to bring the cursor to the calibration value you want to select and then press RUN. The active coefficient will be highlighted by a border.

Calibration - measurement / auto-measurement from GPS

Operation

Arrow buttons serve to browse through  the sub-menu lines, the F button deletes the measured value, OK button stops the measurement, RUN button to enter auto-calibration.

Calibration measurement

After entering the sub-menu the pulse measurement starts automatically. The number of measured pulses can be seen next to the letter K: _ _ _ _. F button deletes value, e.g. at the beginning of the measurement section. OK button stops the measurement. The stopped measurement value can be immediately saved in the memory. To do this, use the arrows to select the memory location where you will save the value, and press OK. The value will be saved. To save the measured value in a different memory cell than 1, the Multi k mode must be turned on.

Calibration auto measurement from GPS

After entry to sub-menu, press RUN button. At the bottom of the screen the word AUTO will appear which means correct start-up of auto-calibration. Warnings may appear about too small quantity of visible satellites AUTO: Sat<5!!! or too low speed AUTO: Speed<15 km/ h.

Auto calibration is carried out over a distance of 1000 m. Distance traveled during auto-calibration can be seen alongside TRIP. When you reach 1000 m, the measured value will stop automatically. By pressing CLR you can start the measurement again or you can immediately save to memory the measured value. To do this, use the arrows to select the memory location where the value will be saved and press OK. The value is saved. To save the measured value in a different memory cell than 1, the Multi k mode must be turned on.

NOTE. When during measurement you will lose the GPS signal or slow down below 15 km/h, the measurement will be stopped.
