03 - VBOX Touch Screen Layout

As the name suggests, VBOX Touch is controlled by using the capacitive touch screen.

Generally, the top of the screen contains indicative status information, the centre of the screen contains mode/settings information which can be navigated by pressing fwd/back buttons or by swiping the screen left/right, and the bottom of the screen contains function buttons.

Logging Status

The Record Icon VBOX Touch Recording Button.png will show when the unit is logging data to the SD card.

IMPORTANT – The SD card shouldn't be removed when the Record Icon is on as you may lose data.

SD Status

The SD Card Icon displays the status of the recording media. When an SD card has been inserted and has free space, it will display as green VBOX Touch SD OK.png. When no SD card is detected or the media is full, the icon will display as red VBOX Touch SD Not OK.png.

Tapping on the icon when green will manually start or stop logging data, overriding the Configured Logging Strategy.

Sats Status

The Satellite Icon displays the current GNSS status. More information on the different GNSS states can be found here.

The 4 LEDs at the top of the unit provide visual feedback dependent on what process is being performed:

  • Accel/Decel Mode: If Alert at End is enabled, the LEDs will flash green for 0.5 s once the test end criteria is met.
  • Lap Timing Mode:
    • The LEDs provide a live reference lap speed comparison (Delta-V).
    • The LEDs will illuminate blue during the process of creating a Reference Lap.
    • When loading a Track Database file, the progress of the track database update is displayed via the LEDs; each lit LED will represent 25% of the process with all LEDs extinguishing when the process is complete.
    • When a Track Layout is changed, the LEDs will briefly flash green twice.
    • When a Finish Line is cleared, the LEDs will briefly flash green twice.
    • When a Standing Start is Enabled or Disabled, the LEDs will briefly flash green twice.
  • Speed Mode: If a Target Speed LED Alert has been set, the LEDs will flash green when the value is reached.
  • Screenshot: If a screenshot has been saved successfully, the LEDs will illuminate yellow in sequence from left to right to display the progress of writing to the SD card.
  • Reset: The LEDs will briefly flash green twice when a screen has been reset.

Settings Button

The Settings Button Settings.png will open a Settings area which contains Display Mode, General and Diagnostic Settings.

The options presented first within the Settings screen are dependent on the mode selected, information on these can be found within each specific mode area.

Screenshot Button

Selecting the Screenshot Button Screenshot.png will save a full image of what is shown on screen to the inserted SD card. If the screenshot has been saved successfully, the LEDs will illuminate yellow in sequence from left to right to display the progress of writing to the SD card. When screen capture is complete, VBOX Touch will emit an audible confirmation notification. If the screenshot has been saved unsuccessfully, for example no SD card is inserted or the card is full, the SD Card Icon at the top of the screen will flash 3 times and VBOX Touch will emit an audible error notification.

A captured image is saved as a 1.5 MB bitmap image, orientated at 90° to the original screen image, with the prefix 'screenshot'.

IMPORTANT – NEVER remove the SD card when a screenshot is being taken, it could cause the unit to crash!

When pressed, the LEDs will briefly flash green twice and the unit will emit an audible confirmation notification. If selected within the Lap Timing Mode, a cancel timeout screen will display, allowing you to cancel the reset within 5 seconds by pressing the screen.

Fwd/Back Buttons
