The Lap Timing Settings is where you can configure the start/finish gates and split gates to record lap timing.
Clear All Gates
This button lets you clear all active lap timing gates.
When you press the button, the unit will show you a Change Confirmation Screen. If you need to abort the process, you can tap this screen to go back to the Lap Timing Settings and keep your active gates.
Set Start Gate
Tap the screen when you are at the location where you want your start gate to be.
Press the Cancel button if you want to return to the Lap Timing Settings without setting a start gate.
Note: As the MFD Touch needs to know the heading to set the gate, the vehicle must be moving for this function to be available.
Set Finish Gate
Tap the screen when you are at the location where you want your finish gate to be.
Press the Cancel button if you want to return to the Lap Timing Settings without setting a finish gate.
Note: If you do not set a separate finish gate, MFD Touch will use the set start gate as the finish gate as well.
You can set up to 6 splits to use in your lap timing.
Tap anywhere on the screen to set a split at your current location.
The screen will automatically move to the next split when you set a split.
If you do not want to set more splits, you can tap the Confirm Splits button to confirm the splits you have set. This saves the splits you have configured and will take you back to the Lap Timing Settings.
Once you have created splits, you can go back and edit your split setup. You can add additional splits if you have set < 6 splits and you can change the location of already set splits.
Use the Skip to Next button to navigate past splits you wish to keep. When you see the split gate you wish to set/change, tap on the screen to set the new split at your current location.
Press the question mark button to see the help screen for the start/finish and split gates.

If you need to stop it from saving the file after confirming it, you can dismiss the file save by tapping on the screen while it is being saved.
