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

Lap Timing Mode requires a start/finish line to calculate lap times. By default, the start/finish line it used is detected from the Currently Selected Track based on its GPS location.

If there are no local tracks available, you can create a start/ finish line using the display when you are on the track. You can also create a start/finish line from a previously recorded VBOX file of the track by using the VBOX Test Suite Software.

  • You can download the VBOX Test Suite Software here.

Follow the steps below to create and upload a start/finish line from VBOX Test Suite to VBOX Touch:  
  1. Open the VBOX Test Suite Software and select the Add button from the Home tab.

  1. Place the newly created .spl file into a folder named SF LINES on an SD card and insert the card into the unit.

  1. Press the Load Lap Timing Gates button in the Lap Timing Settings. If it can only locate one file on the SD card, the file will be loaded immediately. If it finds multiple files located on the SD card, the unit will display all available files. Select the file you want to use and press the Confirm button at the bottom right of the screen.
