How to customize DD?

How do you change all the colors on the screen. How do you monitor the egt's and such things. I have posted this many times and nobody will help me. Also is it a pain to download the new firmware?

go to main menu and look for places to change guage layouts and colors by going left and right(cant remember exact names for these things)

firmware is easy, open dash daq program on computer and plug in dash daq and hit check web for updates

Best source of info is over at the Spartan Tech Support forum..in order to change the colors and whatnot check out the attached document. Also install the .config file I attached - you need to download it, unzip it, place it in the "transfer" folder on your SD card and load it up.

As far as the firmware goes - it is easy, you can now use the "check web for updates" button. Ensure the DD updater software is installed on your computer, plug your DD in with the USB cable (left side of DD, not the right side). Open the DD Updater tool, make sure the proper device is selected and the check web for updates...
