Introduction

Note: For instructions on using the RaceBox Mini-S with standalone recording, check out the tutorial here.

The RaceBox Mini Bluetooth® external GPS and GLONASS receiver provides improved accuracy and update rate than the standard 1Hz GPS built in to smart phones.  This will improve lap and sector timing accuracy as well as race line analytics.  The device should be positioned with full view of the sky (for example on dashboard or rear window).  

Refer to manufacturers Quick Start Guide for installation recommendations.
