The old VDASH-EMU ButtonBox (2015 gen. 1) vs the New V2RButtonBox (2021 generation 2)
VDASH-EMU is a virtual racing dash MAINLY which displays telemetry from racing game supported by SLIMax Manager Pro only.
The virtual button-box integrated in VDASH-EMU is limited to 32 buttons and works with a char mapping system to simulate keystroke.
VDASH-EMU can also be bridged with a teensy LC usb controller ($12) with the first generation of V2R technology which makes char mapping unnecessary.
Software license is $5 per emulator (tablet).
Hardware Capabilities standalone: none with the usb controller: 32 buttons
VDASH-EMU displays telemetry information from racing game supported by SLIMax Manager Pro with a basic button-box.
Software license is bonded to the dedicated tablet.
V2RButtonBox is a powerful REAL TIME virtual button-box using the 2nd generation of V2RBox technology to be usable like a REAL (physical) button-box and compatible with ANY game or software using joystick inputs (buttons, encoders, axes).
Software license is $5 + $12 for the Teensy LC usb controller which is available everywhere. Software license covers UNLIMITED button-box emulator running on Android or Windows (we recommend a large dedicated Android tablet for real time usage).
Hardware Capabilities: 64 buttons + 6 axes per controller (up to 256 buttons+26 axes with 4 controllers).
V2RButtonBox is universal and much more powerful than gen 1 and dedicated to button-box usage for fly-sim, sim-racing, post prod audio/video control, 3D controller and any software using joystick inputs.
Software license is bonded to the usb controller with unlimited button-box emulators (tablet Android or Windows).
