Default D-180 EMS Page - Displayed Items

I have a D-180 question. I have read Installation and User manuals and they allude to being able to move what is displayed on main EMS to different locations on the screen. My screen (see attached) has two (2) Fuel Flow each displayed as analog gage. I also have two (2) Fuel Pressure – one displayed as text and other as analog gage.

I guess my questions is… Can this page be altered and things moved around to different locations on the screen?

Default displays are generally fixed position...

I also wanted to change some of the displayed EMS and EFIS fields on my D180 but came to the conclusion that it's not generally possible to move things around. This was after reading both the installation and the user manual, and going through the setup pages in the unit itself. There are setup options to include an item or not, however the screen positions seem to be fixed.

In your example I think there are actually two pages, L is the EMS page and R is the Fuel page, hence the two representations for fuel pressure and fuel flow.

Maybe somebody else knows the secret, if there is one! Sorry I can't help more, but I suspect that it is the way it is with the D180.

I contacted Dynon with this question and await their reply. Last time I talked to them about D-180 they said all the software engineers that designed the D-180 have moved on and no longer with company so info is lacking.
