How to customize Zeus Touch displays

Got a B&G Zeus T12 and I want to display the chart on one part of screen and the nav data on the other part. There are a few pre-set display combinations that are mostly worthless, such as one that has the chart on left side and nothing on right side but a huge compass showing only your current heading. I haven't found anything in the manuals about setting up a custom page display.

Ideally I would like the chart in full size but with a small window devoted to the nav data. But I'll settle for the chart in 1/2 the screen and nav data on the other side. The chart itself has SOG, course and lat-lon at the top but on the nav data side I would like waypoint name, distance, bearing, ETA, crosstrack error, VMG, etc. and as a bonus, rudder angle.

Any help from the tech gurus on site will be greatly appreciated.

Just learning T12, but Page / Navigation / pick one of the empty setups / then drag the chart over and drop it / then srag the Nav data without the big boat, the one that gives a useful track with 0.05nm xte lines, course to next waypoint etc. This screen is not perfect. The data acreen does not need to ocuppy the entire 1/2 of the screen. AGREED!

Re: How to customize Zeus Touch displays

The particular screen is "Steer" I just noticed. Look in your manual. I have not found a way to make it less than 1/2 screen.
