Display Configuration

The display config options are: Screen On Duration, Auto Carousel Interval, Always Point North and GPS Format. Display config uses an admin message sending a Config.Display protobuf.

Device Config Valuesโ€‹

Screen On Durationโ€‹

How long the screen remains on after the user button is pressed or messages are received.

Automatically toggles to the next page on the screen like a carousel, based the specified interval.

Always Point Northโ€‹

If this is set, the compass heading on the screen outside of the circle will always point north. This feature is off by default and the top of display represents your heading direction, the North indicator will move around the circle.

GPS Formatโ€‹

The format used to display GPS coordinates on the device screen.

Acceptable values:

DECDecimal Degrees
DMSDegrees Minutes Seconds
UTMUniversal Transverse Mercator
MGRSMilitary Grid Reference System
OLCOpen Location Code (Plus Codes)
OSGROrdnance Survey Grid Reference

Prefered display unitsโ€‹

switch between METRIC (default) and IMPERIAL units

Flip Screenโ€‹

If enabled, the screen will be rotated 180 degrees, for cases that mount the screen upside down

OLED Defintionโ€‹

The type of OLED Controller is auto-detected by default, but can be defined with this setting if the auto-detection fails. For the SH1107, we assume a square display with 128x128 Pixels like the GME128128-1.

Acceptable values:

OLED_AUTOAuto detect display controller
OLED_SSD1306Always use SSD1306 driver
OLED_SH1106Always use SH1106 driver
OLED_SH1107Always use SH1107 driver (Geometry 128x128)

Display Modeโ€‹

The display mode can be set to NORMAL (default), TWOCOLOR or INVERTED. The TWOCOLOR mode is intended for OLED displays with the first line of output being a different color than the rest of the display. The INVERTED mode will invert that bicolor area, resulting in a white background headline on monochrome displays.

Heading Boldโ€‹

The heading can be hard to read when 'INVERTED' or 'TWOCOLOR' display mode is used. This setting will make the heading bold, so it is easier to read.
