The point of having two trip counters.
« on: March 01, 2016, 09:48:50 pm »
I remember once reading an article in the motorcycle press criticizing the two trip counters, why does this bike have them?

Well for me, it now makes sense,....I mainly have 'trip 1' showing MPH, tire pressures and tank range, those are the items that I like to have visible all the time, occasionally I'd like to see the trip mileage/miles that I've covered whilst on that ride out so just pressing the 'i' button displays that on 'trip 2's' display, you can then quickly toggle back to the 'trip 1' display by pressing that button again.

Am I right in saying that you can't have all that information set up/displayed all the time on one 'trip setting' ?...hence why there are two. :002:

Or have I missed something?

There aren't enough Lines on the Display to show "everything" !

But whether you are looking at Trip 1 or Trip 2,
you can also use the Up / Down buttons to scroll through
the items that are not displayed on the Centre Line of the Display.

Yes, I did know about the scrolling but found it a bit strange that it only works on one of the 3 lines.

But then you would need an 'Extra' button to jump between the 3 segments on the info display....

Much as I love my Trophy there is one thing it doesn't need and that is MORE buttons!

The display on my Trophy can be very useful but can also be overwhelming at times...can anyone recommend a video guide that would help master all of its functions?
