Basic Usage

To adjust the times on the V-Titan 64, begin by pressing and holding both the plus and minus buttons. The display will change, indicating access to the menu. Browse the options by pressing the minus button. Select an option by pressing the plus button. Once selected, the plus or minus button will adjust the time by tenths of a second. To exit the menu at any point, wait for a few seconds and the menu will time out and return to normal usage.

Tapping the grind button once tells the grinder to use your T1 setting. Tapping it twice tells it to use your T2 setting. Holding the button allows for manual grinding.
