** Please check out the future of WifiLapper---called SpeedFreq **
WifiLapper is a GPS laptimer, data logger, and telemetry transmitter oriented towards endurance car racing. It has a large, easy to read display so that drivers remain informed but not distracted, and can interface with external OBD2, IOIO and GPS units so that you record more and better data.

Once a lap, WifiLapper can transmit recorded data via a wifi network to a pitside laptop for further analysis. The Pitside application is free to download from the WifiLapper website.
Messages can be sent from the pits to the driver either via Pitside or via SMS. Normal text messages are kept private by requiring a certain prefix on text messages meant for the driver. Drivers can acknowledge texts by tapping the screen, and WifiLapper can optionally send a text back to the pits to inform them the driver got the message.
For drivers, WifiLapper displays their speed/distance graph and current lap delta (how ahead or behind they are at that moment, compared to their best-ever lap). Other optional displays can be selected as well, including current speed, and speed compared to their speed on their best lap.
