Under the Assign Buttons tab you can address any of the six profiles across the bottom to make changes to, on this and every tab in the software. This tab more specifically addressed the button assignment to easy many aspects of PC use. You can change these from mouse functions to Office, Windows, Media, Macro, DPI, Fire Rate, program launchers, instant buttons, profiles, or even turn the buttons off.

The Manage Macro tab allows you to start the collection of up to 72 Macros and I have to assume that is 12 on each profile. Just click on the new key, add a title, and start recording the Macro. Something that will help the more advanced Macro programmers is that this GUI offers up to 20 commands to be entered for an individual Macro, opening the gates to some really advanced things going on with just the click of a single button.

Under the Advanced Settings you can control what is going on with the tracking system. On the left side you can control the speed of the mouse, its double click speed, and the number of lines in each segmented turn of the scroll wheel. The right side addresses the sensitivity of the laser with an option for advanced sensitivity, the polling rate and the DPI. Here there are two smaller buttons. One is DPI Stage which allows you to set the DPI of each of the six DPI levels of the Gila. The other is the Lift up Distance button, and this will allow you to set the sensitivity to kill the tracking of the laser from 1mm to 5mm. This is typically referred to as LOD and the adjustments and named LV1 through LV5.

The Light Options tab is pretty self-explanatory. There are three sections to adjust on the Gila. You can address the "Light 1" section that covers the head lights. "Light 2" covers the scroll wheel and the GX Gaming name. "Lights 3" covers the tail lights and all three sections can use the 48 pre-defined selections on the left, or by using the RGB scale on the right you can pick any color you want. On top of 16 million color options, you can also adjust the intensity of the LEDs and whether or not the lights will pulsate.
