How to Rotate i-Pilot Link Screen Orientation
If you prefer the remote buttons to be orientated below the touch screen, the i-Pilot Link remote has the option to orientate the screen to accommodate this preference. Once you orientate the screen, you can hold the remote with the buttons below the touch screen and the screen will be right reading. When orientating the screen, the Steer Right button, and the Steer Left button swap functions in order to correct the position of the remote.

  1. Press the Home button.
  2. Scroll through the Content Area using either your finger or the Screen Navigation button to find the Options button.
  3. Select the Options button using either your finger or by pressing the Ok button to open the Options Menu.

  4. Once in the Options Menu, scroll through to find the Screen Rotate option. By default, the Screen Rotate is toggled "off".
  5. To toggle Screen Rotate "on", press the Screen Rotate option. The Screen Rotate toggle will turn green to indicate Screen Rotate on is turned "on". The orientation of the screen will also rotate 180 degrees.

Notice: When the Screen Rotate toggle is turned "on" the Steer Right button and Steer Left buttons swap functions. If the remote is then held so that the screen is right reading, the steering buttons will also control the motor in the correct direction.
