VBOX Help?

So I tried to go on a few runs tonight with the vbox but it didn't work out so well. I am using the new Vbox Sport and my 100kph-200kph came out in the hundreds of seconds? I don't know what I am doing wrong as I thought you just turn the unit on and it really does everything from there. No need to reset it when doing another run and it automatically picks up everything. I am a totally newbie to this but know some of you are experienced so any help would be much appreciated! Trying to get this down so I can have some concrete numbers for everyone.

I just recently purchased a Vbox Sport also. When I have just tested 60-130, I had the vbox on and just simply hit the record button. Not sure if I did anything special but it seemed to work my first try, haven't tried it since. Reading through the manual helped out making sure I was doing it correctly. The sport is so new I am not sure if many people have it yet, so I am not sure how much support you will get from it.

Okay so prior to the run you hit the record button after turning it on?

The manual made it seem like you just leave it on and it will automatically detect everything but maybe that's for laps. Does your software show it as 100kmph-200kmph instead of 60-130?


VCM,
Thanks...was the first place I looked and it seemed like set it and forget it.


Izzy,
Cool once I get below 200 seconds I'll send it in lol!

I switched mine to read in mph versus kph. In the software after I imported my run I clicked the accel to show 60-130. I did have a run that recorded for about 10 minutes that shows also that has all sorts of weird times. The time I got it to work properly was specifically starting the run prior to doing the acceleration and stopping it shortly after.
