I am considering purchasing the FDS-MFD. Can you please tell me if the two knobs can be programmed for other than WX RDR? Thanks.

The Rotary Encoders that are in this unit are not for WX.. They are able to be connected to via pins on the back of the unit.
They are actual Rotary Encoders and if you have an interface that is able to accept you can benefit from these devices.
The original plan was for the encoders to hold the knobs Smile
Brent added the pin connectors in case anyone wanted to pull the functionality out of the unit. A bonus..
Rotary Encoder chip sets are very expensive so it was not an option on this unit.. Down the road this will chance I hop but for now.. the chipsets are priced very high and the vendors simply take advantage .....
The Rotary "PUSH" functions are working on these encoders. They appear in the programming mode... adding two more functions. We use one for backlight on/off control as an example.

Peter,

Thanks for your reply. I was wondering if the engraving surrounding the knobs is part of the product or if they can be deleted or changed.
