Default Unguessable Dash Dots

Does anybody know what these dots in the dash display are all about? As far as I can tell, the top one is always bigger than the lower ones; they don't seem to change to indicate anything.

Hey K9Intender,
This is not on mine, as I have the cheaper version. Hopefully someone can chime in with the upgraded K900 like yours. That said, my assumption would be that you are on the top window, of 4, which is why that one looks the biggest, but they are all inline. Your photo reminds me of mine with the dots, and thats what it means.
I went out and took a video of mine, and my cheaper cluster . Hopefully this helps

Hmmm...interesting, TurboD16. You could be right. I'll have to play around with it a little to be sure.

Well, I tried this out, and I'm still pretty much baffled.

When I scrolled through the menus, the dots went completely away, except that two came back when I hit the tire pressure screen, and one was lit up.

It's like some sort of K900 Morse Code that you need the code book to interpret!

My 15. Those dots are to tell you which window you're on. You can go left and right to access different menus, and sometimes up and down to view different windows of same category. Here you'll have range and trips I believe.

You are probably right, ah-chanh. After I posted this, I actually realized there's something similar on the screen of the copier where I work. It shows you whether you're at the copy, fax, or scan screen.

However, the copier is consistent and clear. I can't say that about the K900. I've pushed most everything and I can't get those dots to act in any way that seems to convey any info. It just seems to be random. There must be some sense to it, but I can't see it.

When I hit the down arrow on steering wheel (right set of controls on the 15).

Yes! I finally got it, ah-chanh, while I was stuck in traffic today. It's for the menus going down, vertically. I kept expecting it to light up when you go through the horizontal menus.

So, now I know what it does, and I consider it a remarkably useless featurette. But at least I got it!

What do you mean "light up"? I believe the one you're on lights up and gets a little bigger if I'm not mistaken. Just a reminder of which menu you are on I suppose.

Yes, that's what I mean. I guess they are all lit, or you couldn't see them, but the one for the menu you are currently on gets way brighter.
