How to Create a VBOX Touch Start/Finish Line Using a VBOX File

A start/finish line is required within the Lap Timing Mode to calculate lap times. By default, the start/finish line used is detected from the Currently Selected Track based on the GPS location.

If no local track is available, it is possible to create a start/ finish line using the display when on track, or by creating a start/finish line from a previously recorded VBOX file of the track using the VBOX Test Suite Software following the instructions below.

  • VBOX Test Suite Software can be downloaded here.

Please follow the steps below to create and upload a start/finish line to VBOX Touch:

  1. Open VBOX Test Suite Software and select the Add button from the Home tab.
