LapTimer v18 (iOS, Android, Web) announcement

Postby Harry » Wed Mar 26, 2014 1:41 pm

Dear friends of LapTimer,

We are in line to deliver Harry's LapTimer v18 this Friday! We never released such an amount of additional value in one day:
  • new iOS LapTimer v18 Editions,
  • new Android v18 Rookie Edition,
  • all new Android v18 Petrolhead Edition,
  • and finally an all new web browser front end to a million laps recorded with Harry's LapTimer.

Code: Select all

Hot new feature: participate in Challenges
‣ Challenges can be submitted to the server and downloaded by other users.
‣ Drive against other's times.
‣ More important, it is a great tool to compare your drive in details against others - e.g. your racing instructor.
‣ Challenges can be submitted public or to listed users only.

Lots of changes to video and overlay functions [Petrolhead and GP]
‣ New, vehicle-specific gadgets! Lean angles for motor bikes, extended OBD for cars, and calories burned / height profile for bicycles
‣ Video exposure lock
‣ Multi lap overlays and video manipulation
‣ Convenient video management for full sessions

Completely reworked Online functionality [Petrolhead and GP]
‣ Browse through all tracks active world wide!
‣ It is no longer required to have a track in your database to see track shapes and active driver positions
‣ LapTimer online view available directly on our LapTimer home page (includes desktop browsers)

New analytics [Petrolhead and GP]
‣ New G-G chart for analysis of general driving maturity
‣ Reference lap comparison for Map Chart
‣ Massive performance improvements for diagrams and imports

Improved sensor support
‣ Sensor specific configurations (VBOX Sport, Dual XGPS, OBD2 4U, generic NMEA and OBD sensors)
‣ MAP calculation for OBD
‣ Much improved power / fuel consumption calculations
‣ Support for Diesel engines.

Like all our major releases, this version includes a huge set of minor improvements and bug fixes on top!
And like all LapTimer updates, it is completely free for existing users. Enjoy!


- Harry

Harry, what is the procedure to get from the beta version to the final release while retaining one's data?

Thanks.

Actually it should be overridden automatically once the next production version becomes available. Do you have automatic updates enabled in the Playstore app / in Android Settings?

Oh sorry, I though Android... For iOS there is no update so far, so the update mechanism will probably not recognize the difference between beta and production (same version number). Once 18.0.5 is released (1 week), it should update.

Ah, my mistake. The beta has expired but no problem, nothing on until next month.

Harry, I assume it's ok to install the app store version over the beta? I'm not seeing any update notification.

The iOS version is so stable I have not released an update yet. I assume as the beta has the same version number as the beta, it will not update it. I will try to submit an update tomorrow, but it will require 2 or 3 days until it appears on the store...

I can easily install the v18 from the app store now. Just want to make sure my data will be ok. My beta has expired.
