GUIDE: adding custom variables
Adding custom variables enables you to extend the set of built-in GpsGate variables. They can be used the same way as built-in variables can be used in device mapper, status window, track points panel...
First of all, make sure all your plugins are up to date. All "green" under SiteAdmin -> Plugins.
The following steps walk you through how to manage them:
Go to SiteAdmin -> Devices -> Variables page.
On this page you can see the overview of custom variables.
Add a new custom variable:
1) In the last row you can fill the details (Name, Description, Type, Unit) of new variable you are adding.
2) Click the Save button.
Remove an existing custom variable:
1) Click the Remove button of corresponding row. Click yes.
If the output field is used in any device mapper you will see a final warning.
