    Vbox Sport

    Anyone use the Vbox sport. It seems very cool compared to the old Vbox. Still records to a SD card, but also has an iphone app to see all your data and edit it. You can start and start using your iphone as well. I am thinking about getting it.

    Looks interesting. The app is definitely a plus. One kinda weird thing I don't like about it is that it looks like a radar detector. I leave my vbox and don't really worry about someone breaking in my car to steal it because it doesn't look like anything worth taking. Doesn't look like a radar detector or navigation. Just some weird little box.

    Yes, just received it the other day from vbox USA.. I like it much better than the performance box.. It comes with a 2gb sd card so for the guys that do not have an iPhone, iPod, iPad etc can easily log to the ad card then view results on their pc..

    Just to confirm, it does all the same things the bigger performance box can do right? Not giving anything up for the smaller size?

    Yes, it is their newest product and actually logs twice as fast than the bigger performace box. I also like that it could be a standalone as it has 6-7 hrs of battery life.. When I use it I simply grab it from my glove box and put it on the dash. It doesn't slide around either.. Connects to my iPhone 5 in seconds..

    i had mine in a few days..,,

    I started looking at this last week. Compared all the specs with the original model and it doesn't appear you're sacrificing anything. After the next couple mods I have scheduled, it will likely be the next thing on my list. Pretty awesome little item if you aske me.

    That' the plan. I only have a DCI and JB4 right now. I can always run map 0 for a run and then keep logs from there going forward.

    Mind either posting or PMing me a link to where you bought it? $429 is pretty reasonable from the brief shopping around I did.

    But....maybe we could organize a group buy and save a couple more bucks....Click here to enlarge

    wow , pretty cool, i have a vbox so without any new features its hard to jump on it and i hardly use my vbox and always offer to send it any to any board members to test their cars because its simply a lot of money to use for 2 hours a year lol...

    I may sell mine on ebay and pick this up if i get the itch though... the phone idea is cool but for any records and what not you need the sd card anyway... and i like the display on mine...

    but this is def a nice upgrade and the cheaper price makes it all that much better.

    Bummed to hear they won't be offering a group buy, but maybe that's for the best. My pocket book appreciates it. Click here to enlarge
