Tap “Connect”. The Blue LED on the side of Tshow processor module will double flash while connected. Over a few seconds, Tshow downloads all the settings to the Tshow processor module and the current date and time. The progress of the download is shown on the NeoPixels as an expanding magenta band.

The drop-down selects the visual mode, and Tshow will immediately show the new mode. Depending on the state there are various override options, such as blinkers, charge connected, charging, and holidays. The overrides are specific to that state. For example, you might show holidays only in the parked state, but not while driving.  For those modes that have one or more color choices, tap on the color to change the color.
