VBOX Touch Firmware - Release Notes

Version BETA - 26 July 2022

Compatible Products (Product Code):

Includes all features of +

(New) Adds support for CAN

  • Initial release of CAN functionality, adds support for CAN input (from vehicle database / DBC files, or RACELOGIC modules) and CAN output

Version - 25 July 2022

Compatible Products (Product Code):

(New) Adds support for new 25 Hz GNSS engine

GNSS engine included in V2 hardware available from July 2022

(New) Addition of miles/kilometres option for distance on Average Speed screen

User can now change between metres/kilometres, or feet/miles for distance display on Average Speed screen, previously only metres or feet were available.

(Fix) Lateral and Longitudinal acceleration channels now zero below 4 satellites

Lateral and Longitudinal Acceleration channels were previously displaying values when satellite count was 3, anything below 4 should give no data for all GNSS channels

(Fix) Decel test speed setting was not always updating to reflect unit change

Changing speed units could result in decel test using the previous speed value (but displaying new units) until a power cycle

(Fix) Issue on average speed screen when crossing midnight UTC

When crossing midnight UTC the elapsed distance could reset to zero and average speed would change to showing live speed

(Fix) Stint time was incorrect after performing a cold start whilst moving

If a GNSS cold start was done whilst moving during active lap timing, after the next stint time reset the stint time would resume counting from the last known value rather than from zero.

(Change) Removed direct navigation between different settings areas

Each menu area is now separate and cannot be navigated to by swiping/pressing arrows from another menu option.

(Change) Changed result rounding to match VBOX Test Suite

Occasionally, results could be 0.01s out between VBOX Touch units and VBOX Test Suite software

(Change) “Alert at target” now resets when under 50% of target speed

“Alert at target” reset previously only reset once vehicle became stationary, now the reset occurs when below 50% of the set target speed
