Sounds: Turn global application sound effects on or off.
Accelerometrics Assisted GPS: Toggle Accelerometrics ON for greater low-speed accuracy, or OFF for improved battery life.
Accuracy Filter: The Accuracy Filter is ON by default for the best GPS position accuracy. You may wish to switch the Accuracy Filter OFF if you are having trouble acquiring a signal or when traveling at very high speeds (over 150 mph or 240 km/h).
Disable Compass Interference Warning: Turn off the warning for inaccurate compass reading due to magnetic interference.
Geocaching: Increases the frequency of position updates.
Skin Styles: Choose either the default color scheme (dark background with orange numbers) or a high-contrast scheme for improved visibility in day/sunlight.
Orientation: Choose between Portrait, Landscape, or Automatic.
Speed Format: Choose between displaying speed or pace on the Track Recorder page and in saved tracks details.
Units: Select either metric, nautical or imperial units.
Map Data: When toggled off, new map data will not be downloaded (for those concerned about data usage). Note this does not restrict Google (iOS 5) or Apple (iOS 6) map types. To disable those map tiles from being downloaded turn off cellular data in your iPhone settings.
Backup Maps in iTunes:Enable the backup of your cached and downloaded maps in iTunes during your next sync. Due to the very long sync times associated with backing up map tiles in iTunes, we recommend only turning this option on if you plan on restoring your device, to avoid having to re-download your maps.
Map Caching: Turn Map Caching ON to automatically cache MotionX Road or MotionX Terrain map tiles, or NOAA marine chart tiles, so they can be viewed offline.
Note: the iTunes Drag & Drop feature is not supported on the iPhone 3G or 1st/2nd generation iPod touch.
Use the voice coaching options to enable and customize audio updates while recording a track.
Track your heart rate from MotionX using a ANT+ or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) chest strap heart rate sensor.
To setup an ANT+ heart rate monitor, wear the chest strap and connect the ANT+ receiver (dongle or case) to your iPhone. Select Manage Sensor>Connect. Once connected, your heart rate will display on the setup page and in the track recorder.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
Newer Bluetooth Low Energy heart rate monitors are supported on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 as BLE requires a specific Bluetooth chipset found only in these devices. No receiver dongle or case is required and there is no need to pair the BLE HR monitor with your iPhone first. To setup, be sure Bluetooth is turned on from iPhone Settings > General. Wear the chest strap, then from MotionX-GPS select Menu > Setup > Heart Rate Sensor > Manage Sensor > Connect.

Turn the Track Recorder stats Autoswipe on or off, and configure settings. When set to ON, the track statistics and graphs at the bottom of the Track Recorder page will automatically scroll between the four available views (speed/pace & distance or custom fields, speed/pace graph, altitude graph, and ascent/decent & gradient). Configure the idle time (time the screen is idle before Autoswipe begins) and the page view time.
When turned ON, Track Recorder Auto Pause will automatically pause the elapsed time when you stop moving. When you start moving again, the elapsed time will start again. This will keep your average speed and average pace accurate if you don't manually press Pause when stopped. If the Pause button is pressed, the Auto Pause feature will not override this action.
Auto page cycle automatically cycles through the pages selected. When turned ON, autocycling will initiate when any of these pages are viewed. Choose to include any combination of the Track Recorder, My Position, Map or Compass pages in the rotation. Initiate auto page cycle following an idle time ranging from 10 sec to 5 min. View each page in the rotation from 5 sec up to 1 minute.

Optimized: Keep the GPS receiver on when MotionX-GPS is backgrounded with the Track Recorder or Auto Live Updates running, or when actively navigating to a waypoint.
Always On: Keep the GPS receiver on when MotionX-GPS is backgrounded. This option consumes the most power.
Always Off: Turn the GPS receiver off when MotionX-GPS is backgrounded. This option consumes the least power.
Outdoor GPS: Uses the GPS chipset to determine location. Horizontal accuracy 30ft - 300ft.
