The G502 gaming mouse lets you customize pointer settings in two different modes:
NOTE: For help with choosing between these two modes, see answer 360023420973.
The G502 gaming mouse supports these pointer customizations in Automatic Game Detection mode:
- DPI levels - Configure up to five levels, from 200-12000 in 50 DPI increments.
- Report rate - Update from 125/sec (8ms response time) to 1000/sec (1ms response time).
- Per profile pointer settings - Enable different pointer behavior for each profile.
- Acceleration - Enhance pointer precision.
To configure your pointer settings:
Open the Logitech Gaming Software:
Start > All Programs > Logitech > Logitech Gaming Software 8.x
Click the glowing pointer - gear icon. Make sure the blue marker next to the icon is to the right.
The Pointer Settings window will appear.
Under DPI Sensitivity Levels, drag the tick mark along the graph. For each DPI level you set, you'll see a tick mark. You can set up to five.
NOTE: If you prefer, you can edit the list of DPI values to the left of the graph from 200-12000. For each DPI level you set, you'll see a tick mark rounded to the nearest 50. For example, if you type in "632", the software will round to 650 DPI.
Assign Default - (Required) One DPI level must always be the default. To change the default, click a DPI level that doesn't have a blue diamond above it, and then click Assign Default. This is the DPI level the mouse will return to when you:
- Press the default DPI button
- Switch between profiles
- Power up the computer
- Wake the computer from sleep mode
Assign Shift - (Optional) A Shift DPI is a DPI level you can temporarily activate by pressing the DPI Shift button. To set the Shift DPI, select a DPI level that isn't highlighted in orange, and then click Assign Shift. This enables extreme precision or mouse speed when needed. The mouse will revert back to the current DPI level when the button is released.
TIP: Buttons you assign as DPI Up, DPI Down and DPI Cycle will enable you to change between DPI levels rapidly.
NOTE: LEDs on the G502 mouse will change while cycling through DPI levels using assigned mouse buttons..
Change the Report Rate, if you prefer something other than the default of 1000 reports/second (1ms response time). The Report Rate controls how often your mouse updates its position to the computer.
NOTE: The possible range is from 125/sec (8ms response time) to 1000/sec (1ms response time).
- Decrease processor use by reducing the report rate.
- Increase the mouse response by raising the report rate.
TIP: For most PCs, a report rate of 500 is recommended.
Make your preferred selections under Advanced. The options are:
Enable per profile pointer settings - Select this option to enable each profile to have different pointer behavior (see answer 360023420973 for help).
TIP: We recommend leaving this unchecked for the initial setup.
Acceleration (Enhance Pointer Precision) - Select this option to use Window's "Enhance Pointer Precision" acceleration.
TIP: For gaming accuracy, we recommend leaving this unchecked, but you can enable it if you prefer the feel of default Windows acceleration.
The G502 gaming mouse supports these pointer customizations in On-Board Memory mode:
DPI levels - Configure up to four levels, from 200-12000 in 50 DPI increments.
NOTE: DPI Shift setting isn't available in On-Board Memory mode.
Report rate - Update from 125/sec (8ms response time) to 500/sec (2ms response time).
