Button two had a new purpose. Instead of turning up the Bluetooth power, which every button does now, it will turn on live readings. Button three requests the current heading once, but it was tedious to press the button over and over while spinning the device, or if I was looking for an errant reading, I had to get lucky and hope to catch it. I used a switch() statement to switch between printing the heading, position, or speed.

Several readings came across each second. Numbers were appearing at different parts of the screen because they would run over the text window's length. Fortunately, they used a fixed-width character set, so once I found that I could print 35 characters on a line, I formatted all the live-readings to buffer their messages with spaces.

Button three is ripe for repurposing and could become a mute button.
