The on-screen ball placement aid is only displayed when the device is looking for a ball (the "ball-lock" indicator light will be flashing red). The ball must be placed within the right or left hitting zone (indicated by the trapezoids) for ball lock to occur.
Once the GC2 is locked onto a ball, the "ball-lock" light will turn solid green, indicating the ball may now be struck.
Light patterns and corresponding meaning:
SLOW (RED) FLASHING: indicates device is looking for ball
FAST (RED) FLASHING: Indicated ball just outside of ball find area, must be moved towards the center of the box
SOLID GREEN: indicates the ball is recognized and the device is ready to be used.
ALTERNATING (RED/GREEN) FLASHING: indicates ball is detected but device cannot establish a lock
NOTE: When locked on a ball and connected to a Windows computer running FR1 or FSX software via a USB cable, the Foresight Sports logo will appear on the LCD screen.
When locked on a ball and NOT connected to a Windows computer, the previous shot data will appear on the LCD screen.
