When the organizer of the rally releases the Speed Table, we have to enter all the data in the Rabbit Rally 2.0 using the Stages Editor. To open the Stages Editor open the menu and select “Stages”.
The Rabbit Stages Editor is very flexible and can calculate any one of the fields. For example, in rallies where we receive distances and times, the Rabbit automatically calculates the average speed.
The Stages Editor works separately from the Navigator to allow us to edit the stage while we are running. So whenever we make any change in a stage we have to send it again to the Navigator.
