The Multi-Function Display app allows you to use the VBOX Touch as a display when connected to a VBOX 3i. It will show data from GPS derived channels that are outputted over CAN.

Up to six parameters can be displayed on a single screen, such as speed, lateral & longitudinal acceleration, radius of turn, distance travelled, heading and various brake test channels. It can also calculate and present performance test results, live from the test vehicle.

You will need the cable 'RLCAB005-C' to connect VBOX Touch to a VBOX 3i.

How to install new applications

It is quick and easy to install new applications without any prior experience. You simply need to download the application that you require, unzip it, load it onto a compatible SD card (such as the SD card supplied with the VBOX Touch) and insert this into the VBOX Touch. You can then follow the simple on-screen commands which will guide you through the installation process.

Please note: Only one application can be loaded to the VBOX Touch at any given time. If you wish to switch between applications, you will need to download each application separately and install it by following the steps above.

Revert to standard functionality

If you wish to revert to standard functionality of the VBOX Touch, you can download the Performance app below, which would have been installed on the device when you first received it. Following the same steps as above, you can re-install this app on the VBOX Touch via an SD card.
