    Hi guys,

    I'm new to the forum and apologize if this has been answered before.
    I have two Quad computers. One being a Quad air. My question is can I have my backlight stay on once activated for my Quad Air? I can do this with my regular Quad but not with the Air. I had a deep night dive and had to keep an eye on my computer during ascent which was very hard to do with the light going off every 10sec. The situation I was in warranted such monitoring (I was helping a friend to the top and couldn't keep pressing the button).

    Thank you!

    -Chris

    You can change the length of time to 60 sec or something, not permanently on but an improvement.

    10 seconds is the longest I can set it, unless there is new firmware out that i don't know about (i checked the website constantly)
