  • Editing Data Fields

    How do I change the order of the data options on data screen 1? The user guide says to tap twice on a data field to change it, or tap a field and tap another field to rearrange them. This doesn’t work. One tap simply grays the data screen and shows the rest of the home screen, and tapping twice simply goes between gray screen and back to data screen 1. I have version 4.1 installed.

    I think what you want to do is Edit a Data Screen, which is on Page 9 of the manual under Editing a Data Screen.

    Menu> Ride Setings> Data Screens> (Select the data screen you want to edit)> Layout and Data Fields> (Select < or > to change layout)> Select (check mark)

    Then,
    tap twice to change a data field, or
    tap a data field then a second data

      hi hoJak,
      same problem on my side.....
      i changed the "field order" as asmcdaniel described, but it wasn't "saved".
      and yes, i touched the hook after changing the fields.

      has someone the same problem?
      also firmware 4.10

        wighlander After you move the data fields there is an additional check mark. See if that works for youLayout describes

        I struggled with this a bit on the Explore. As I understand it, you first select the data fields you want to display, then the arrangementr of the fields, and finally which data field is displayed in which postiion on the data screen. And you must confirm each of those with a check mark.

          asmcdaniel thanks for your help.
          but, maybe, i'm a little bit stupid. i'm a computer specialist and a garmin fan although the usability isn't always good, but i can't change the arrangements of the fields.
          i tried it often and i tried it each way inclusive your description (i hope so) and nothing helps.

          i choose one field (then check). then i choose the check mark and i can arrange the fields on the mask (choose two fields to change the position) then i checked on the check mark.
          if i go backwards to the field-layout nothing happened, the fields are in the first arrangement.

          then i insert a new side and want to insert the fields in one special sequence, but garmin put the fields in another sequence after a few fields.
          i'm very disappointed. i can choose every field i want and it saved for later, but i can't save the special position i want to have for the fields.

            I've noticed that when you go to the field layout screen, the order of thelds is not the same as were displayed on the data screen.

            Here is how I arrange the data fields:

            Menu > Ride Settings > Data Screens > Screen 1 > Layout and Data Fields > (check)

            That takes you to the Select Layout scrren (Check)

            That takes you to the data screen where you can touch a field you want to move, then touch where you want it to go. Touch the (check), then three touches (back), and touch the x mark.

            That works for me.

              asmcdaniel thanks a lot for your help

              yesterday, i could't believe that i found as my mistake. sometimes it's strange. ;-)

              sure, i changed the fields in the layout-screen, but i always gone back to the layout-screen to check the changes. and there was never a change of the arrangement.

              .....but in the navigation-screen of this site the fields are arranged, how i want to have it.

              so, maybe it would be helpful to know for others, that the changes only are set in the live-pages. not in the layout-screens.

              thanks a lot for reading and your responsing.
