The main display of the app is the “dashboard display”. It shows the last retrieved sensor values (for up to 5 sensor channels) and a map with a trail indicating the road condition value.
On the left side the current measurement values for the configured sensor channels (see below) are displayed.
A symbol on the left side indicates the type of measurement value. Tapping on a symbol will display a short description for the measurement type.
Below the measurement values 3 icons indicate the status of the
The Bluetooth and server connection status is indicated with a red cross (no connection) or a green arrow (connected).
The GPS signal quality is indicated by the number of curves around the antenna symbol (the more curves the better the signal quality).
Tapping on one of these icons will show a short description.
Below the Bluetooth status icon are 3 small symbols located:
On the right hand side of the display the map with a color trail of the route taken is shown.
The map can be moved/zoomed with the usual pinching and swiping gestures.
The colors for the road conditions used on the map depend on the “simple road conditions” (green, yellow, red) settings.
If this is activated, the colors are assigned as follows:
Should the switch not be activated, the following colors are assigned:
|5||Chemically wet||Dark Gray|
The trail will “fade out” (i.e. the color will become more opaque) over the configured “Fade Out Interval”, and the data will be removed from the trail after the configured “Remove Interval”.
Below the map are 2 icons and a segment control to select the map type.
The left of these icons – the curve – clears the path trail from the display.
The small arrow indicates whether the map “follows” the current position (i.e. the map automatically moves with the vehicle so that the current position is always in the center of the map) or not.
If the arrow is gray (disabled) the map follows the position (and therefore is disabled).
If it is blue, the map is not centered to the current position and tapping on the arrow will re-center the map.
The segment control allows to switch the map display between (road) map, satellite images and hybrid (road map and satellite images).
Note that the satellite images cause higher data transfer from the map server.
