    Some features in the preview app and setup software may not function correctly until the VBOX Video is using the latest firmware version

Further details on setting the Wi-Fi password can be found at the Racelogic Support Centre.

Camera Updates

  • When the VBOX Video has been upgraded to the latest firmware, an update will also be applied to all cameras connected to the unit. This update will take place automatically during the firmware upgrade. If no cameras are connected at this time, the upgrade will be applied the first time the unit is powered with cameras connected following the firmware update. Each camera will be updated individually via the port it is connected to. When the camera update is being applied, it will take longer than usual for the VBOX Video to boot and be ready for logging.
