Logitech Gaming Software
Once the software is downloaded and installed, this is what you are presented with first. There is a notification to the 19% initial charge, an image of the G403 with all of the buttons highlighted, and to the right, you can let it run the game auto-detection or click on the ghosted mouse image and be taken to the second page.
As we moved to the second window by clicking on the mouse icon on the page before, the scan for new games and programs took off by itself. This will allow the mouse to see that when a game or application is launched, it will set the default profile for each application. Note we are showing only nine of the 617 applications that the G403 will recognize.
After closing the detection window, we can now see the commands and profiles window. First, you need to select a profile along the top to address any custom settings in. Once selected, via the list on the left, you can scroll through, once you find what action you want, you simply drag and drop it into the image at the right, to a particular switch shown.
Moving to the next icon along the bottom of the window, we move into the pointer settings menu. It is here that you will address how many DPI levels you want to use, the default is four, and we also see there is a Shift setting, sort of a Sniper Mode if you will, as indicated by the orange line. Once all of the DPI levels are set, you can move into the report rate level, as well as finding a pair of advanced options to work with, covering per profile DPI settings, and enabling enhanced pointer precision.
The next move is into the lighting settings, and here we can adjust the LEDs in the G403. There are switches to turn off or enable the scroll wheel and logo lighting, you can use breathing or color cycle as modes, and you can also adjust the brightness and speed in which the color change or breathing occurs. You can also set different lighting effects for each profile if you desire such control.
In the power section, you see a battery icon on the left with the amount of life left to give displayed. You can play around with the LED settings in this window and see what sort of life it gives or takes from the G403, and to the right, you can also see what the current power draw is, broken down by section. It also states here that with a full charge, there are 22 hours of life to give.
The next icon allows you to tune the mouse to the mouse pad, via the surface tuning section. Click on the "add new surface" icon at the top, name it if you wish as we did, then click on the tune button. With a set amount of speed needed to the movement and drawing figure eights on the pad, after a few seconds, the mouse is calibrated and will increase its readability of any surface you wish to use.
The last page is a bit of a novelty but is still interesting to look at. Either by assigning a key to activate this software, or clicking the play icon and gaming, you will see the key usage of this mouse when does. The map you will see can be displayed in a heat map, showing red as most used and also displaying the number of clicks on each button. Or, swap over the mode to duration, which will display total time that the keys were pressed along with the heat map.
