Upgrading HD2 Firmware 

Occasionally Racelogic will release new versions of firmware (internal code) for the HD2, often to introduce new features, information about the newest firmware update can be found here.

New firmware is loaded into the HD2 using an SD card.

Download the latest ‘.vvhfw’ file here

How do you run the update?

  • Download the upgrade file from the link above.
  • Place the .VVHFW file on the root directory of an SD card (not in the media or any other folder).
  • Power up the VBOX Video HD2 unit.
  • Load the SD card into the front panel.
  • The HD2 will double beep when the upgrade is complete (may take up to 5 minutes).
  • Turn the unit off and on again to complete the upgrade.

Note: From Firmware update 1.3.58 onwards, no power cycle will be required to complete the upgrade.
 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

When upgrading to the latest firmware, the cameras must be connected to the unit as they included as part of the upgrade. However, this makes the cameras incompatible with units running older release firmware. If you have more than one unit, it is highly recommended to upgrade all units in one go or isolate upgraded units and cameras to ensure compatibility.

If you own more than one set of cameras, e.g. as part of a 2nd car HD2 accessory kit, you will have to update the firmware with each set of cameras plugged into the unit, using the same firmware upgrade file.

 

Upgrading the OLED display

If you are using an OLED display, this should also be upgraded after new Video VBOX firmware is loaded.

Upgrading the track map database

Occasionally Racelogic will release new versions of the track map database in order to introduce new circuit maps and start/finish lines - and also to update any older tracks ones with new layouts.


The track map database stored within the VBOX Video HD2 is updated within a Firmware Upgrade, however the database can also be updated independently of the main unit firmware.
 

The latest database file can be downloaded from here
 

To update your VBOX Video HD2 with the latest track database, please download the file and install it by following this procedure:
 

  • Download the latest track database file from the link above.
  • Place the Database_Hd.vvhdb file on the root directory of an SD card (not in the media or any other folder).
  • Power up the VBOX Video HD2 unit.
  • Load the SD card into the front panel.
  • The HD2 will double beep when the upgrade is complete (may take up to 5 minutes).
  • Turn the unit off and on again to complete the update.

Upgrading VBOX Video HD2 Setup Software 

The latest VBOX Video HD2 Setup Software can be downloaded here.

You will be asked to specify where to save the installer; you should select your desktop.

Allow the installer to download.

If you open this ZIP file, and select ‘extract all files’ from the top left corner of the window, you can then save this to your desktop.

Now open this ‘unzipped’ folder, and click on the ‘setup.exe’ icon. This will then run through the installer – you will have to click ‘next’ a couple of times and agree to some terms and conditions.

Note: HD2 Setup software does have an auto-update functionality, however the software will detect and notify if there is a new version available. It will then give the option to download and install the update.

IMPORTANT – Microsoft Windows 7 and VBOX Video HD2 Firmware version V1.3.72 or newer is required
