Logitech's "surface tuning" feature in LGS (for G502) does...?

post #1 of 7

What does this feature really do exactly? I note that by using it my mouse feels smoother/nice, but feels delayed or I have to move it so much faster to track a target (as opposed to flick). Without it however the mouse feels more responsive but not smooth.

I've tried googling but there is almost nothing on it besides "lift off distance".

Is there no knowledge on this then?

Surface tuning would try to get better tracking on your current surface. Also tends to lower the LOD in my experience.

None that is publicly available - all we know is it alters LOD

Depending on which version of firmware the G502 is using it can cause problems too. My G502 is unusable with anything other than the default surface setting. On any setting other than default quick swipes left or right with the mouse would cause my view in Battlefield 4 to suddenly point straight up.

Yeah, a lot of people are aware of this. I'm using the most current up to date firmware/LGS and have no problems with that.

I'm on my second 502 and a new mousepad but I haven't "surface-tuned" since my original issue. So, it may not be a problem for me either but I see no need yet to change from default, the mouse is flawless as is.
