[TG] [TG11] Engine data page

RE: [TG11] Engine data page
Hi Tom,

Thanks for your reply, firstly as I mentioned I am running the latest version of LH3 software v3.11.42 Cannes I did not include the exact version information in my post. The max RPM is set to auto on checking the screen I see that this is set to 5 which is almost the same value that I have set for the red line value, the screen actually shows 5 as a maximum RPM my engine WOT is 6300 so I am at a loss as to where the system is getting a 5 number, custom RPM red zone is set to 5300. I would have thought that any system that has an auto setting for an RPM value would set the display to a minimum of 1000 RPM above the red line start? or at the very very least alert that the setting for the redline is above the maximum engine RPM. I will see if I can set the auto to manual and set the RPM to 6300 and get a red line but this also implies that the auto function does not work (engine is a Mercury Verado 250 HP running through a Mercury N2K gateway).
With respect to the graphical page layouts being "fixed" I take this to mean can not be changed not have been made to work? the customize engine page does imply that they can be changed, I do not expect to be able to change the actual graphics which to me are the central display items, but all other data in "boxes" should be available to be added for example engine boost, at present they are not. I recognize of course that there are space limitations and that the number of engine parameters have to be capped but it would seem reasonable given the space that a user could have the central display plus six parameters of their choice on the engine page? I have moved up from a ten year old system and cannot display 50% of the engine data I had. No disrespect to your programmers or engineers but I do not consider trim tab position nor rudder angle to be critical engine data.
Finally on the central display may I suggest adding on all dials a below minimum red line, a green sector and an upper limit red line and on the RPM section a "programmable sweet spot marker" for example the sweet spot on my boat is 4700 RPM this gives me maximum fuel efficiency and speed balance.
