flag-de.png

 This is not the current firmware version!

The latest version of the VBOX 3i firmware includes some significant changes and brings additional functionality to the unit itself, the Setup Software and VBOX Manager. The latest software and VBOX Manager versions should be used in conjunction with this firmware release to allow full use of the latest features.
 

Many of the changes have been made as a direct result of customer feedback requesting new features. Some changes have been made to fix bugs and other issues found during testing.

Racelogic strongly recommend that all users upgrade to the latest firmware release to take advantage of the new features and benefit from the improved stability.

Requirements

This version of VB3i firmware requires that VBOX Setup and VBOX Manager be updated to maintain compatibility, the minimum versions required are as follows:

  • VBOX Setup version 3.0.2.571.
  • VBOX Manager version 3.0 b2186. NOT compatible with VBOXIII!

Enhancements/ New Features

Compatability

VB3i Firmware now works across all VB3i variants, there is no longer a requirement to install different firmware versions dependent on the VB3i variant.
