Advanced Configuration

Lanciatrek Config File

The configuration file allows you to configure various settings and default values within Lanciatrek (full version only).

You can display KPH instead of MPH, enter your own speed per 1000rpm that relates to your gear ratios and tyre sizes. You can also change when displayed values change colour, for example setting the coolant sensor value to go red at 100 degrees.

Name and Location

The file is a simple text file named trekConfig.cfg and should be located in the same folder as the Lanciatrek exe file. The configuration file is optional, but the software uses it if it finds it.

As standard there will be a file named QtrekConfig.cfg provided with Lanciatrek. Rename this file, removing the Q if you want it used, rename it with the Q if wish to revert to the default settings (the file is then ignored).

Look at it with a text editor and carefully change values. Any text editor is fine, like Notepad on a Windows PC.

Configurable Options

The file is configured with values in a specific order, you must only edit the values. Do not delete, insert or add any lines of text, just alter the numbers at the start of each line.
