That was fast, runs flawlessly so far. After the "stupid"(*) firmware got an update, now the good one too.

(*) In product-design this two things are very stupid:
a) an unused button if there is need for more direct accessable functions (e.g. in a car, the turn signal sholdn't be set only via a menu)
c) hide often used functions while prominent presenting rare ones (e.g. in a car, the ejection seat button is better kept under a cover than the horn button)

Thanks for this essential improvement of the original firmware.

You are welcome! :)

To add those 6 dedicated buttons was an excellent DM42 hardware design decision, however, the opportunity was completely missed by practically not making use of them - was kind of frustrating. Hope at some point in time pcm will find its way into original firmware…

This has been my default firmware build. I agree, I hope this finds its way into the mainline DM42 firmware.
