05 - VB3i Logging


Logging modes

The logging method can be set within VBOX Setup. There are three options which operate as described below.

Log continuously

With ‘log continuously’ ticked the VBOX will log data, regardless of movement, whenever powered with media detected.

Log only when moving

With ‘log only when moving’ ticked then the VBOX will only log data to the CF card when it detects speed >0.5 km/h.


The advanced logging option on the VBOX 3i allows any of the logged data channels to be used to trigger the logging on the VBOX.

This facility allows a threshold value to be set as either > or < so that the logging will start or stop when a data value is exceeded (or not).

Multiple data channels can be combined in a Boolean ‘OR’ manner to control the logging.

Compact Flash Memory Cards

The VBOX units will store logged data onto CF cards. The CF cards that are available from Racelogic are already optimised for use with the VBOX units, and as such, they do not need to be formatted before use.

Should the CF card need formatting due to card errors, and the card is smaller than 32 GB, you can do this through Windows. If the card is larger than 32 GB, you must use third-party applications to reformat them. You can find more information about how to format a large Flash card in FAT32 here.

Note: You can purchase CF cards directly from Racelogic and our distributors, or you can contact us to confirm card compatibility.

Do not remove the CF card or power down the VBOX unit while the unit is logging (CF LED is flashing). This can lead to data loss or corruption. Press the LOG button to stop the logging first.
