Hi all !
I moved one posting from another thread to this new thread, because I think, that this is
a very interesting item and not everybody is following the original thread.
The discussion came up, when Phil wrote this:
I agree with you about the user settings. It's a shame because it's available in the communication protocol, but it's not implemented in the software.
I tested it when I started implementing the plugin, but there are so many settings that I eventually gave up and dropped it.
Maybe I'll add it in the next version (what settings do you think are most important?).
I didn't know, that the communication protocol allows also user settings to be read/written !
There are only a few (and not very useful) settings, which can be set via Training Gym.
I'm always angry, when after a firmware update I will loose all my settings.
Maybe this is my personal problem, but I also sometimes do not exactly remember,
which parameters I have to set again and which values I selected last time.
So I will be disappointed during the next 3-4 trainings, when I discover one setting after the
other, which is not set according to my needs (or to my wishes).
And therefore, I really would like to have a possibility to read the current settings from the watch
into some software. Then save / store / display / edit the values and write it back to the watch
at a later time.
Okay - Which parameters are we talking about ? Here I have the same problems as mentioned
above: "...I sometimes do not exactly remember, which parameters I have to set..."
Anyway - let's try:
1. Configuration of the four user pages (each contains 1 to 4 configurable parameters)
2. Configuration of Lap page
3. Language and unit-system (meter/miles and speed/pace).
4. Auto-Lap mode and value
5. Heart rate limits
6. Alarm modes
This is what I remember rigth now. Maybe I have to extend this list after next firmware update.
@Phil: It would be a great job, if you could include these functions into a new version of your
Sport Track plugin. Up to now I didn't see any need to use it, instead of Training Gym or of the
basic Sport Track plugin.
But if you could provide a solution, I would definitly move away from Training Gym.
Especially after I heard, there will be a new version of Training Gym - but imcompatible with GH-625.
@All: If you use more or other user parameters - or if you remember better than I do:
Please extend/modify the list and give some feedback what you think about a solution
for this problem !
