1. Timing Over Distance
1.1 Starting a Timed Run
Once you are ready to start timing the vehicle acceleration, select one of the Acceleration Timing modes. The unit will check if enough memory is available to store the run. If there is insufficient space, a message will be displayed informing you of the lack of memory, and the unit will return to the acceleration menu. You will have to erase the current data before any more runs can be performed. If there is sufficient memory the display will change to start the run. The meter will then calibrate itself, after which it is ready to start timing.
|Ready to Start|
Start moving whenever you are ready. The timer will start as soon as the Trigger g-Force value is exceeded. This is set to 0.10g by default but can be changed in the configure menu.
During timing the display will show the current distance, g-force, time and power. As shown below:
At the end of the timing, the display will show the distance, time taken and final speed.
Pressing any button here will go to the data storage screen.
1.2 Ending a Timed Run
Pressing any button during a timed run will finish the run. If Time Quarter Mile is aborted the unit will return to the acceleration menu. If Timed Over Distance is aborted, the run will be stopped at the current position and the data displayed. If Time Between Speeds is stopped, the run will be stopped at the last 10mph increment passed, if none have been passed then the meter will return to the start menu. Pressing any button whilst on the Ready to Start screen will abort the run.
If there is data which can be stored after a run you will see the following:
Use the up or down button to toggle whether the run is stored or not. After this the unit will return to the start menu.
