    I have a Dell 30 inch monitor (3007WFPHC) that I am attempting to calibrate using a spider3 Elite. The monitor supports wide gamut and so does the spider.

    When I run the calibration it goes through its process and the computer starts using the calibrated profile... but I don't know how to tell what calibration settings the profile is using (what white point did it choose, etc) and I would like to verify that the calibrated profile is correct and that it picked up on the fact that the monitor supports wide gamut and the calibration reflects that.

    I don't know what the calibration settings are supposed to be (considering the wide gamut) so it makes it impossible for me to know if the calibrated profile is correct.

    Can anyone help me find where I'm able to see information about the calibrated profile and furthermore help me to know what settings to use?
