Configure Screen


Configure screen is a menu that allows you to configure the widgets that will be displayed on the map. Here you can enable and configure quick action widgets, information and navigation widgets, and other items.

NOTE. All widgets are profile dependent, so if you change the order, visibility or state for one profile, it will not apply to other profiles. Each profile has its own predefined list of widgets based on the navigation screen design. It can be configured and used with or without navigation.
