The Timer Settings screen allows you to select electronic timers, COM port, results printer, and other settings. The first time you click Enter Results, this screen will appear, and you can also click Timer Settings on the Enter Results screen to bring it up.

Timer Settings
  1. Choose whether you are using FINA/USA Swimming rules or NCAA/other rules for differences between pads and backup times. See Timer Adjustments Rules Preference article for more info.

  2. Select your primary electronic timer. The Timer Assistance button offers more info for the timer selected; see Electronic Timers in TouchPad help for detailed info. Selecting a timer will cause timer controls to appear in the lower right corner of the Enter Results screen.

  3. Select the COM Port the timers are using (click Find COM PORT Number button if you need help). If you are using a BestBET, Colorado 4/5/6, Daktronics, or Time Machine timer, choose the correct COM port and click OK. Then click Test or Test / Choose Meet to ensure it's working.
