Menu Options

You can access the DSP05 OLED Display menu by pressing the square button when the ‘Menu’ screen is displayed. You can navigate the menu with the buttons. Main Menu.png

Scene Selection

Specified

You can load up to 8 user-defined scenes by placing them in the root folder of an SD card and inserting it into the connected Video VBOX Lite. All the required scenes must be loaded at the same time. Every time you load scenes to the Video VBOX Lite, they will overwrite those previously saved on the unit. You can select the scene on the DPS05 OLED Display. If there are scene files on the Video VBOX Lite, a screen will prompt you to select a scene when you power up the DSP05 OLED Display.

If you press the button when you see this prompt, the DSP05 OLED Display will show you a list of available scenes.

Once the DSP05 OLED Display is powered and in use, you can access the scene selection through the main menu.

Scene selection.png

Default

Each Video VBOX Lite has a default scene included within the firmware. Press the square button when this option is highlighted to use this scene.

Track Selection 

When the Video VBOX Lite has acquired satellites, it will check the GNSS location against Racelogic’s track map database and load the available layouts.

Where a track has multiple layouts, you must use this menu option to select the layout you are driving, as this allows the DSP05 OLED Display to load the correct start/finish line(s).   

If start/finish lines are not available for your location, you can set them manually.

Press the square button with this line highlighted to exit the Track Selection menu and go back to the main menu.

View Lap Times

The DSP05 OLED Display will store all the lap times from your current session (maximum of 99 lap times). The lap times will be cleared when you set a new start line or when you reset the lap timing data.

Back

Press the square button with this line highlighted to exit the Lap Times and go back to the main menu.

Predictive Lap Timing Settings

Bar Range 

This setting alters the amount of +/- time shown on the bar graph during lap prediction. You can choose either 2, 5, 10 or 30 seconds.

Press the square button when the bar range is highlighted to scroll through different time options.

Delta-T Speed Mode

 

When enabled, this mode will change the Predictive Lap Timing display to show your current speed as well as Delta-T information, when your speed drops below a specified threshold for a set amount of time.

This function is optimised for use with both 'Virtual Safety Car' conditions and Pit Lane speed limits.

The Delta-T Speed Mode is disabled by default. The default settings are:

Speed: 65 km/h
Time Delay: 1.5 seconds

The display will return to the Predictive Lap Timing mode when your speed increases to 5 km/h over the configured Delta-T Speed Mode value.

For example, if you have set your DSP05 OLED Display to Predictive Lap Timing mode and you have enabled Delta-T Speed Mode;

  • When your speed drops below 65 km/h for a minimum of 1.5 seconds, the display will change to show your current speed alongside your Delta-T.
  • When your speed increases to 70 km/h, the display will revert to Predictive Lap Timing Mode.

Minimum Lap Time

This setting allows you to set a minimum time for laps, making shorter laps invalid. Invalid laps will not be counted in the lap count, appear in the lap times or used as a reference lap. 

Press the square button to change the minimum lap time. You will see two arrows (up and down) appear next to the number. Use the two arrow buttons on the device to increase/decrease the minimum time. Press the square button again to confirm your selected value.

Fixed Lap Mode

Press the square button to toggle between the available settings:
Fix Current and Fix Stored

Note: When you have fixed a reference lap, you will see a message confirming your selection on the screen and a Padlock icon will appear. If you fix a stored lap the icon will appear instantly, if you fix the current lap, the icon will appear when the lap has been completed. 

dsp05-plt-fixed lap mode.png
Fixed Stored
This option sets the reference lap that is currently stored in the memory as the fixed reference. This is the default setting.
Fix Current

This option sets the current driven lap as the fixed reference once the lap has been completed.

Note - if you choose to fix the current lap, this should override any Minimum Lap Time setting as you are making the decision to set the current and full lap as the reference.
