Can't import into Racerender2 I export my session as an Excel file. When I import into Racerender it says "unrecognized or unsupported file format" What the heck?? Edit: Video format. Gee, thanks. Options are "image", "excel", and "google earth". The excel file is the only one of those that seem like they would work with racerender2, but I exported all 3 types anyways and tried to add to racerender2. No success.Then read user guide, then wrote this comment. A thoughtful response goes a long way, especially when the detail required is not provided in user guide.
Great App!! Just got back from my first track weekend using this app. Easy to setup, worked very well. Did have one session not export data to the website.. This being the only issue thus far Amazing app for the money Droid Razr Maxx
Cheap, good when works, awful reliability/support Decent app when works, lots to analyze and see afterwards with the exports and Google Maps/Earth overlays. Unfortunately, I found I routinely lost half or more of the video and on the last event, no video and data. Support was "supportive" at first, then trailed off to no support. Not using again. Not good for between-run review, timer not accurate, then again I don't think any phone-based app would be. Difficult / time consuming to overlay multiple run g-traces in Google Earth to compare different runs simultaneously; also don't know if any app does this well. Use/setup: Autocrosses w/ Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.2.2) + 10hz BT GPS
Works well! Some video - data sync issues I used this for the first time over the weekend using the internal GPS on my LG Optimus G. The lap times match those of friends using a stop watch very closely. Still, I plan on getting a blue tooth GPS soon for improved accuracy. The only issue I had was that the video and data did not sync perfectly. I had to adjust the start time manually in Race Render afterward to make them line up. Not the end of the world, but a bit annoying. I also wish there was more technical documentation on how the app calculcates G forces. For example, does the phone automatically figure out its orientation (it does not have to be mounted to the car sqaure)? What is the concequence of moving the phone relative to the car after you have started, will this throw off the accelerometer axis? Does the app compare GPS path to the accelerometer axis to calibrate itself?
Lots of Data but Unusable I had big hopes for this app but it's designed quite poorly. When I attempted to use it at the track today I came back to find out that it hadn't recorded any data. even though I had started it correctly. As it turns out, you have to setup your track before it will track any data. You have to define the split points. Why? Why can't it just start tracking your GPS data if you don't have any split points defined? Once I got home I sat in the car and tried to figure out the app as I drove around the block. One, it won't work unless you define split points for your track. Two, the GPS code is really bad. I sat for at least 7 minutes in the car before it would lock on. Meanwhile Google maps had no problem locking on. Three, the user interface to look at your data is just terrible. Maybe I'm picky because I'm developer but while it tracks a tone of data, this is really quite unusable. Oh yes, and as I was driving around the block it crashed at least four times. It could be an absolutely fantastic app but they'll need to rethink everything and give us a new design.
Do not spend the money After I purchased the app I try to use it on a track here in fl and it was to confusing picking up the right track. Too many versions created by people. Button names don't make sense. To many features that are listed and you can't use unless you pay for it. Repetitive sections. Emailed developer for suggestions and never got a reply back. Get RaceChrono is free, simpler and did the work better than this. Money wasted. This program is so difficult to use and like I said useless buttons on the screen, is too bloated. Yes you can have two ways to pick up the track go online and download one of the 50+ tracks that everyone created on their own. If you forget to do this at the track you are screwed, you have to do it at home. Second if you pick up the default track then you have to go and choose your points first. Another problem I encountered was that doesn't record if the points are wrong. Again use Race Chrono, easy to use, simple features, to the point and it worked. Forget about reading a manual for an app, make it simple.
- Fixed Twitter API path.
- Fixed Facebook API.
- Added new tracks.
- Predictive lap timing is now available. Choose the Predictive logger layout. Have it based on last lap, best lap, or split marker lap time under Settings->Time Delta Mode.
- Can now speak your split marker notes. This can be useful for reminders. Enable this in Settings->Audio & Video.
- Help in the app and on the web site now list the required app permissions and explanations.
and much more!
