Will not trigger

I have HLT set as usual and it’s showing good gps but nothing happens when I pass start/finish. It never starts timing.
Even if I manually start and then walk past start/ finish nothing happens.
I am at the track now and need help ASAP!

Shaky Video with HLT, Clean without

I just got an iPhone 11 and was really disappointed in the in-car video quality - too shaky to watch. This was w/ the same RAM windshield mount that I used w/ my old iPhone 5S that made nice and clean videos. I tried it just w/ the phone video and it is perfect. Back on LapTimer and it is shaky agai...

Re: Live speeds lagging or just wrong, missed start/finish, etc.

Thanks for the response, Harry. BTW I've always used HLT on this phone and it used to work better. Although the signal strength is in the middle of the green and shows green in Status, the Accuracy is 32'. The reading on the Timer page is L:8% M:32 [+/-] MB Q: 60-80/5/0 Same outside as in the house.

Live speeds lagging or just wrong, missed start/finish, etc.

Of late I am just getting too much error to continue using this app w/ my old iPhone 5S. On the fly the indicated speeds are way off and lag behind too much. Periodic missing of start/finish, even if I walk past it. I just went outside into an open area w/ phone in hand and I get a red "Accurac...

Re: Lap time vs. lap end time

This is true even for successive laps? I.e. the camera is running nonstop and never starts or stops. So which time is the accurate one? I assume the start and stop delays cancel each other out? So, essentially the finish line is moved back the distance = to the delay?

Too complicated for me!

Lap time vs. lap end time

On the Laptimer Integration page for a lap I noticed that it says the lap ends at 1:41.14 but the recorded lap time is 1:42.41. When I scroll through the video it does look like the finish line is closer to 1:41.14. What gives?

How to transfer multi-lap videos from iPhone 4s to PC?

At Road Atlanta my HLT repeatedly failed to recognize start/finish, probably due to an overhead pedestrian walkway. So I ended up w/ several multi-lap videos, obviously rather large files. I know I won't have timing or overlay data but I'd like to save the video. When I try to overlay or move it to ...

Re: Harry's LapTimer Rookie v17.1 for Android available

Thanks. Are you suggesting that the Android versions may always lag behind iOS in functionality? I don't use anywhere near the features it already has. :-)

Re: Harry's LapTimer Rookie v17.1 for Android available

Harry, I've been running HLT for a couple of years and my 2-year AT&T/iPhone commitment will be over 11/3. I'm sick of AT&T and Apple and am considering switching to a Galaxy and another carrier. Are you confident that you will have Android Petrol Head up and running by next Spring?
