Fifth Gear

Post by tulloch » Tue Mar 04, 2014 11:21 pm

This week's episode of the programme had Tiff testing some telemetry gadgets for cars, e.g. the Racelogic unit and others. Also tested was an iPhone app which, compared to HLT was frankly pathetic. If HLT had been featured as the iPhone app it would have blown the rest away and these were units costing several hundred pounds. At least one of these couldn't even auto-start for the timed lap.

Harry, have you ever tried to get Lap Timer featured on programmes such as Fifth Gear or even Wheeler dealers? The latter often time laps in the cars they restore using the native iPhone timer, as do the FG team.

I'm not a good marketing guy, so no, I didn't. Usually I provide information when I'm asked, not the other way around :-(

Do you mind if I contact them? Probably be ignored but you never know.

This is already the second time they featured such a Gadgets test. The first time was even worse, because they featured several Apps and didn't come across HLT.

Yes, by sheer chance that older episode was on last night.
