Here is a link to how to Create the RX VRA Planned jobs/maps

Creating VRA RX Planned Job/maps

You will need the Raven 822 cable to connect from Laptop to the Raven 660 controller to make the VRA communication back and forth from FW Mobile. Your External GPS cable will need to splitter cable unless you have the Raven 115 GPS which already is split. One connection needs to be made to another serial port or USB to Serial (we recommend Belkin converters since using a laptop) if need be. The other port will connect to another External cable that would connect to the Raven 660 controller to get the Speed. I do recommend you contact Raven Support for this portion of the connection to verify you have the proper cables etc.

Since you are using a Laptop, you may need to go into the Computer properties to the Device manager to verify the GPS comport and the comport that is recognized for the VRA 822 cable. This will aid in knowing what GPS comport setting to use with the Mobile program for the GPS setting and when setting up the Device Setup for the VRA to Raven 660. Both these option will be found on the Config Tab-Logging button. When completing the Device Setup you may create a new Device and ok to get to the additional device setup tabs to enter the correct comport - Map data conversion - etc.

If you need additional help with all this setup, it would be best to call our Support Department at 800-282-4103.

Hope this makes sense.
