The LabSat software can be used to control LabSat hardware, as well as the multi-GNSS LabSat 2. When a LabSat is connected to the PC the LabSat software will auto-detect the type of hardware connected and configure LabSat correctly.
In the example shown, left, a LabSat Record and Replay unit has been connected to the PC. The LabSat software has been started and the Settings menus accessed.

LabSat is a single channel GNSS Replay and/or Record Simulator. The device will record and replay from the GPS L1 RF signal. This is the default position for LabSat.
In the example shown GNSS Monitor is set to Internal LabSat. This uses the internal GPS engine to monitor GPS signals during Replay only on the LabSat software GUI. The monitor can be set to Internal LabSat (10Hz) which will use up to to eight satellites only in this mode. An external Serial Monitor may also be selected, to display NMEA data (if available) from the GPS receiver under test on the LabSat software. The NVS NVO8C setting refers to a GPS & GLONASS monitor capability for LabSat 2. The GNSS Monitor may also be disabled to allow for other programmes to monitor the LabSat GPS receiver output.
Note the Video Sync and Serial Proxy tick boxes. Video Sync allows for the synchronisation of the LabSat scenario with a video VBOX recording of the route. Serial Proxy allows for the serial NMEA data from the internal receiver to be redirected to another port. The Turntable Control is part of the LabSat Turntable application. Please contact your LabSat distributor or Racelogic for further details.
The Upgrade Button is used for specific software upgrades such as input of data to allow for a Replay Only LabSat to be set up for a limited rental record period. Please contact Racelogic or your LabSat distributer for details. Note: The Upgrade Button is not to be used for firmware upgrades.
