iPhone 7+ shaky image

I usually use an Galaxy S5 or S7 and have a stable video. I tried a friend's iPhone 7+ on the same car, same track, same mount and the video was too shaky to view. I was using the rock-solid Logitech magnetic mount with the magnetic coupler stuck directly to the phone. (not attached to a case) The i...

G-Circle is off 15 or 30 degrees clockwise from actual

Android - latest Lap timer version. I always make sure the G-force meter is centered before each session, and the phone is always facing straight down the track. On one session videos display the G-Force vector is 15 degrees clockwise from where it should be. The next session displays G-Force vector...

Forgot to load the track before lapday

I forgot the load the Track this morning, so I have three 25 minute manual-start videos with Track "unspecified' I Don't want to mess up the data by trying the wrong thing. An update: I specified the track and split the video into laps. However some data is out of sync with the video. The MPH speed ...

Re: Why isn't there an annual contract ?

As you know, "line of business software" (SAP, Oracle etc) is usually sold with an annual fee to continue usage, not just for updates. You mentioned what is fair to your user base. I would argue it isn't fair to the developer to have his software and support available forever with essentially no cos...

Why isn't there an annual contract ?

Advanced software under continuous development and user support built for a niche market should be sold under an Annual Maintenance Contract Nobody wants to think about, but in USA "lap days" cost your customers $1000-$2000 USD per day in fees, event-insurance, tires, brakes components, fuel, travel...

Re: Remove Gear from Display

Harry asked "why do you want to remove the gear display" The RPM reading on my display occasionally jumps up to 20,000 RPM for a moment when actual is around 6400 RPM. This causes the rotary-arrow on "Gear" display to swing wildly which is distracting when watching the video. The RPM display is not...

Re: Full session not exporting?

Check the file size of your truncated video. 4GB file size limits are imposed by some phones, or if using an SD Card formatted with fat32 instead of exFAT will limit file size to 4GB. On some phones and depending on overlay settings, the overlayed video is larger than the original, so the original v...
