Revert to Original

The Original Car time is the first recorded time for the car. Tapping the Revert to Original button changes the recorded time back to this original time.

This button is only displayed when Revert to Original is a relevant option, i.e. when the recorded time is not the original time.

Revert to Previous

When a change is made to the recorded time, the previously recorded time is captured. Tapping the Revert to Previous button changes the recorded time back to the previously recorded time.

This button is only displayed when Revert to Previous is a relevant option, i.e. when the previous time is not the original time nor the recorded time.

Assign Time to Car

If you have pressed the wrong Car button, or if two cars arrive at the same time, you can assign the time from the first car to the second one. Select the number of the car that you want to assign the time to, and tap the Assign Time to Car button. You will also be given the option of fully resetting the first car.

Note that this will assign the recorded time for the first car, as shown in the top right corner of the adjust screen.

Bonuses

Selecting a bonus from the list and tapping the Apply Bonus button will record the bonus for that car. On the main screen, the Car button will change from green to blue, unless there is also a penalty recorded in which case it will still be red.

To reset any bonus, open the adjust screen again by tapping on the Car button, select the relevant bonus and then tap the Reset Bonus button. If there is an active bonus, the relevant bonus is displayed and the Reset Bonus Button is shown in blue when the adjustment screen opens.

Tapping the Cancel button dismisses the screen without making any changes.
