Default tests are 0–60, 0–100, 0–100–0 and 0–¼ mile, however custom tests can be defined using the Start and End Parameters options within the Accel Settings menu.
Accel test range options
Along with accessing the Accel Settings in the usual way by pressing the Settings Button on the bottom left of the screen and then selecting the Accel option, it is now also possible to define a test range by double tapping on an existing test range header or result within the Secondary screen.
Serial output is now available from the top CAN/Serial port of VBOX Touch. It allows you to either connect VBOX Touch with a computer using an RLCAB001 and conduct online testing with VBOX Test Suite, or to output lap timing parameters. Serial output can be enabled within a new Serial Port Settings Menu, more information on this is available here.
