Please note - this tutorial applies to VX Units: VX75, 95, 105, 235, 305, 350, 175, 195, 205, 315, 435, WR5, WR5L, and 550
Turn the unit on by holding the power button for 3 seconds. Once turned on the Mode LED should be green.
If using a heart rate monitor, the Status LED should turn from red to green within 1-2 minutes, indicating that it is picking up a good heart rate signal.
If using the units indoors (in indoor mode), you can skip this part and start the session. If using the unit outdoors, make sure you are in an unobstructed area outside and wait for the GPS LED to turn from red to green, indicating that the device has locked onto enough satellites to provide your accurate position. You can now put the unit into your vest and start the session.
Once the session is complete turn the unit off by holding the power button for 3 seconds, then plug it into your PC using a single USB cable.
