Before first use

RaceBox comes ready to mount and drive. However it is recommended to review the Settings menu and adjust time zone, auto shutdown and other general device configurations.

Mount RaceBox on the windshield of your car using the provided suction cup. Place it as close to the front as possible for best results. Make sure the device has clear and unobstructed view to the sky. If necessary use the provided external GPS antenna, route it to the outside of the vehicle and secure it with its built-in magnet on the rooftop. Make sure the cable is not pinched by doors or other panels and does not take sharp corners. Adjust the angle of the RaceBox so you have clear view from the driving seat. Tighten the screws of the suction cup by hand - do not use tools and do not over-tighten to avoid damage.

Charging

RaceBox comes with built-in Lithium battery. To charge it connect the provided (or compatible) USB Type C cable at the back of the device and plug it into suitable charger (2A capable). To check charge status turn RaceBox on and wait for a few seconds. When the battery is fully charged the indicator in the top left corner will light in green.

Using External GPS Antenna

If your vehicle is equipped with heated front window or you cannot mount RaceBox so it has good GPS reception you can use the provided optional external GPS antenna. Connect it to the back of the device by screwing it by hand to the SMA connector. Do not use tools - secure it but be sure not to over-tighten to avoid permanent damage. Go to the GPS Settings and configure RaceBox to use the external antenna.
