06 - HD2 Connecting to the Vehicle CAN Bus
VBOX Video HD2 has the ability to capture up to 80 CAN channels from Racelogic modules and/or from a vehicle CAN bus system.
As well as Software Configuration (Windows / macOS), a hardware connection must be made to the vehicle’s CAN bus system.

- To connect the HD2 system to a vehicle CAN bus system by clipping on to the wires, a RLACS182L cable must be used.
Note: If the connection needs to be made using a bare wire interface with the CAN Hi and Lo outputs of the vehicle, we strongly recommend contacting a qualified auto-electrician to perform the fitting.
Setup diagrams are below for HD2 units with and without an OLED display.

OBDII Port Location
The exact location of the OBDII connector varies from vehicle to vehicle, but it will be within a few feet of the driver and it will have easy access. Most often you can find the OBDII connector somewhere below the steering column, either above the pedals or perhaps inside a fuse box by the driver's knee. The OBDII connector will probably be in plain view, but some connectors are covered.
