ManDown feature gets current accelerometer data and calculates angles between offset positions. Currently there are two positions: horizontal (when GPS antenna is in horizontal position facing the sky) and vertical. Scanning is performed each second. When calculated angle exceeds configured angle for configured period of time, an event is generated with configured priority and an SMS event takes place, if it is configured. When angle returns to allowed position, an event with the same priority is generated, an SMS can be sent and a call can be performed, if it is configured.

In Call Answer Timeout and Call Repeat fields fill in the desired values: Call Answer Timeout - Timeout used for indicating successful call, Call Repeat - number of call repeats if the first call was unsuccessful.
6. In Call After Answer field, select 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th number (or all together) if you have that many different numbers configured. What it does is when any of those numbers are enabled, the call will be made to selected numbers regardless on answered voice call. You can also enable Inform When Answered and Inform When Not Answered fields, to receive an SMS if the call was picked up or was not picked up.
