BRAKEBOX / MenuStructure

1.  BRAKEBOX menus

The BRAKEBOX is operated using a simple menu system on the data display, using the UP, DOWN, SET and MENU buttons. Pressing UP and DOWN moves between the menus or cycles settable values, pressing SET selects a menu or sets a value, and pressing menu exits the current menu without setting a value.

There are 4 main modes of "root" menus for operating the unit, namely:

  • Display Mode This mode allows you to monitor the current status of the GPS receiver, or simply display speed, heading or position on the display. No results are stored to memory, nor available to print. This mode is typically used to check the operation of the GPS system or as a simple in-car display of speed etc.
  • Brake Test This is the mode for testing braking performance. Before using this mode, make sure that the BRAKEBOX has been configured as required in the configuration menu.
  • Configuration This allows to to configure many aspects of the brake test including how the test is performed, what results are displayed etc.
  • Recall Results This mode allows you to review braking tests that are currently stored in the memory of the unit.
