VB3i Firmware Features - V2.7

This is not the current firmware version!

The latest version of the VBOX 3i firmware includes some significant changes and brings additional functionality to the unit itself, the Setup Software and VBOX Manager. The latest software and VBOX Manager versions should be used in conjunction with this firmware release to allow full use of the latest features.
 

Many of the changes have been made as a direct result of customer feedback requesting new features. Some changes have been made to fix bugs and other issues found during testing.

Racelogic strongly recommend that all users upgrade to the latest firmware release to take advantage of the new features and benefit from the improved stability.
 

IMPORTANT - This firmware is for VB3i V3-V5 hardware only!
