Logitech® G502 Proteus Spectrum
Your G502 is ready to play games.
If you would like to customize your G502, refer to the next section.
You can customize the three onboard profiles of the G502—surface tuning, button programming, lighting color, lighting effects, and tracking behavior—using the Logitech Gaming Software. Download this free software and learn how to customize the G502 at www.logitech.com/support/g502-spectrum
To adjust the weight and balance of your G502, first open the weight door by grasping the mouse firmly in your right hand and pulling the tab down with your left thumb.
You can place up to five 3.6 gram weights in a number of different orientations. Experiment with different positions for the weights to find an overall weight and balance that feels right for you.
After inserting the weights, close the weight door by inserting the tabs on the weight door into the slots on the left side of the mouse and rotating the door down until the magnet holds the weight door firmly closed.
Out of the box, the sensor for the G502 is configured to deliver amazing tracking across a wide range of surfaces. For an extra edge, it can also be further tuned for optimal performance with the specific surface that you use for gaming. To tune the sensor, use the Logitech Gaming Software.

The G502 has three preconfigured profiles, one each for high sensitivity gaming, low sensitivity gaming, and standard mouse usage. Use Button 9 (see mouse drawing) to rotate through these default profiles. When you change profiles, the DPI indicator lights will change color to blue for three seconds and will indicate the new mode as shown here:
DPI values are shown using the three LEDs indicated in the mouse drawing. The image below shows which DPI value is being indicated by the LED panel.
Hyperfast Scroll Wheel
The G502 features Logitech’s exclusive dual-mode hyperfast scroll wheel. Click the button right below the wheel (Button G12) to switch between the two modes.
Weight and balance tuning is very much an exercise in personal preference. Generally speaking, more weight makes it easier to control high DPI settings, while less weight makes low-DPI gaming less fatiguing.
Centering weights along an imaginary line between your thumb and right-side grip finger(s) will help maintain optimal front-to-back balance.
The effects of changing weights may not be immediately apparent. After changing the position or number of weights, give yourself some time to experience the difference before changing them again.
Try the default profile settings in practice games before changing these settings.
Advanced gamers can customize each game according to their specific button configuration and sensitivity switching needs. The Logitech Gaming Software stores this information and applies it automatically when the game is detected.
