Flashing orange indicates DGPS is set but not locked (either 2 cm RTK, 40 cm local DGPS or NTRIP).

DIFF LED - flashing orange.gif  
Solid orange indicates a Float RTK status (either 2 cm RTK or NTRIP) or a Fixed DGPS lock (40 cm local DGPS or SBAS). Diff Yellow LED.png  
Solid green indicates a Fixed RTK lock (either 2 cm RTK or NTRIP). Diff Green LED_250px.png  

Solid orange indicates that the IMU integration is enabled but that no IMU is connected or that the detected IMU is invalid.

When using an IMU04, you must make sure that it is:

  • connected using an RLCAB119 to the 25-way D connector
  • is set to Racelogic CAN mode
  • is running the latest release firmware

Flashing orange shows IMU is connected and integration initialisation is running. This will not be completed until the VBOX unit has had a satellite lock while being stationary for 30 seconds. IMU LED - flashing orange.gif  
Flashing green indicates that the integration Initialisation is complete but that it has not detected movement yet. IMU LED - flashing green.gif  
Solid green indicates that it has detected movement – the IMU integration is working. IMU Green LED.png
