Droid Power Control Widget

I loaded the Power Control Widget onto my Droid, but there are no instructions as to how to use it or what the icons represent. Can someone give me this info or refer me to a source? There is nothing in the Droid manual either.

Re: Droid Power Control Widget

From the sticky thread at the top of the forum (Your Android Phone and You 101 - It is a great first stop for questions...


I have the power gadget on my desktop. Can You explain what each icon is for?

[[Wifi] [Bluetooth] [GPS] [Sync] [Brightness]] (In that order) 


Wifi enables you to connect to hotspots/wireless routers, etc to access internet.

Bluetooth allows you to connect with not only different cellphones that have bluetooth, but even hardware such as headsets.

GPS allows you to have a precise look as to  where you are and located at. Apps such as Sherpa, Google Maps, and Layar uses these frequently.

Sync sync's up your phone with anything Google Related, for example, GMail.

Brightness, is pretty self explanitory. Lowest level is dim, medium level is standard brightness, highest can light up a movie theatre.
