Configure screen menu

In order to customize widgets visibility you need to access Configure screen menu via Main menu.

Most of the widgets could be configured as:

  • Show – widget is visible on the map screen
  • Hide – widget is hidden from the map screen
  • Collapse – creates a group of "collapsible" widgets and a button to quickly expand / collapse them on the maps screen.

Collapsible widget states

Note: all widgets are profile dependent, so in case you change the order, visibility or state for 1 profile, it won't be applied to other profiles. Each profile has its own predefined list of widgets based on the design of the navigation screen. It can be customized and used with or without navigation.
