How to Set a Start/Finish Line with Performance Box Touch

A start/finish line is required within the Lap Timing Mode to calculate lap times. By default, the start/finish line used is detected from the Currently Selected Track based on the GPS location.

Manually Set a Start/Finish Line

It is possible to manually set a start/finish line when moving, overwriting the line detected within the circuit layout.

To manually set a start/finish line, tap the screen within the Basic Lap Timing Screen or select Set Start Gate within the Settings.

A screen will be displayed, allowing you to cancel the start/finish line gate set within 5 seconds by repressing the screen. After 5 seconds, you are required to drive forward in a straight direction to complete the process. The gate is set at 90° to the detected heading and the width is dependent in what is selected within the Gate Width Settings.

The detected location when the screen is initially pressed/start gate set is used as the centre point of start/finish gate. 

If you are defining a separate Finish Line, this gate will act as the Start Line only

Notes:

  • The vehicle must be moving >0.8 km/h and the unit have satellite lock to set a Start/Finish Line.
  • If start/finish line setting is cancelled, any live lap prediction for the current lap will be lost and unavailable for use.

Manually Set a Separate Finish Line

It is possible to manually set a separate finish line when moving, overwriting the finish line detected within the circuit layout.

To manually set a finish line, tap the screen within the Basic Lap Timing Screen if Standing Start has been Enabled, or select Set Finish Gate within the Settings.

A screen will be displayed, allowing you to cancel the finish line gate set within 5 seconds by repressing the screen. After 5 seconds, you are required to drive forward in a straight direction to complete the process. The gate is set at 90° to the detected heading and the width is dependent in what is selected within the Gate Width Settings.

The detected location when the screen is initially pressed/finish gate set is used as the centre point of finish gate. 

A separate finish line must be set if you are using Standing Start Mode.

Selecting the Clear Finish Gate option within the Lap Timing Settings will clear the separate Finish line and will use the active Start line as a combined Start/Finish line.

A screen will be displayed, allowing you to cancel the finish line clear within 5 seconds by repressing the screen.  

If the finish line is cleared, the LEDs will briefly flash green twice and the unit will emit an audible confirmation notification.

Load Start/Finish or Finish Line Gates

You can load previously saved or provided Start/Finish line gates by inserting an SD card with gate files contained within a SF LINES folder into the unit and then pressing the Load Lap Timing Gates button within the Lap Timing Settings. If only one file is located on the SD card, the file will be loaded immediately.

If multiple files are located on the SD card, the unit will display all available files. Select a file and then press the Confirm Button Confirm Button.png on the bottom right of the screen, or press the Cancel Button Cancel Button.png on the bottom left of the screen to return the Settings screen without saving. When loaded, a success screen will briefly display to show that it is was loaded successfully. If there are splits stored within the file, these will also be uploaded to the unit, up to a maximum of 10 gates/splits.
 

Note: When a new Start/Finish or Finish line gate is loaded, all existing lap timing values will be cleared and the new lap timing gates will be used.
