The TL1000 use different sound to inform or remind you of an event
Start of a new trip
As you start driving, if the instrument is ready to log a two tone sound will be emmited.
This is to tell you the logger is working, and connected to the satellites and to remind you to tell it what type of trip you are about to start...
Looking for Satellite OR Instrument Memory Full
- When you plug in the TL1000 in your car, the instrument will immediately start looking for the satellites signal, in order to do it's initial signal lock. While this is going on, the blue button will be flashing and the 'looking for satellites tone will sound until it has enough to start operating.
- If the instrument is beeping and never connecting to the satellites, this can be a sign the memory is full For more info on how to erase memory, please consult the link to Erase Memory
Once the process of finding the proper satellite signal is completed, a solid single tome will sound.
Split a Trip
If you need to start a new trip and the delay is too short for the logger to know about it. You can hold the button down until the new trip signal is completed. (an any time, even if you are moving, hold down the button, wait until the signal is over, then release the button)
Power supply warning
If the power cable is not connected properly and is turning on/off, the unit will detect the supply variation and will emit a warning sound to let you know there is something wrong with it's power supply. This can happen if you are not using the supplied OBD adapter, as cigarette lighter plus are often very poor at staying in place.
It can also happen if the mini USB connector is not properly inserted, of if it is dirty or corroded due to a lack of maintenance, or simply stretched to the point it is not stain in place.
Over Speed Warning
It the over speed is enabled in the instrument, the sound below will be turning on speed when ever you are driving above the limit you have selected. It will wait for the time configured and replete itself as long as you are over the limit.
This function must be set using the manager software with the TL1000. you must connect the TL1000 to the PC in order to configure the logger.
