LapTimer will never be connected to two GPS sensors, so this is strange. I will try to reproduce that the next days.

Thanks for the feedback, it has been a bug...

Racebox's script integration didn't handle hundreds seconds precision properly. Instead it set the hundreds seconds part of measurements to 0. So LapTimer received 25 fixes per second - but all with the same timestamp. In LapTimer's database, this resulted in 1 fix added and the next 24 overwriting this first value. So in the end only 1 of 25 made their way into the database.

Although LapTimer will report your Racebox Mini recordings as recorded with the internal GPS at 1 Hz, it is actually the Racebox GPS at 1 Hz. For lap time accuracy, the error introduced will be smaller than 0.02s, but these recordings certainly miss the level of detail one would expect.

This problem will be fixed in LapTimer v24.6.1, I plan to release it the next days.

Hi. I’m a Grand Prix Edition user. Do you recommend to invest in the Racebox Mini? It’s looks a good solution at very nice price. Thanks in advance.

To start with, the LapTimer iOS version 24.6.1 is available on the stores now. Android will follow shortly.

The main decision one has to make is whether you want an external GPS or not. In case want higher timing accuracy and the option to do in depth data analysis, an external GPS is recommended. Once this decision has been made, the Racebox Mini is a very good option.
