Action cam + ODB + GPS

Postby angelok » Tue May 24, 2016 4:01 pm

First of all, great app. Thanks, Harry.

I have an iPhone, Go Pro Hero 4, ODBLink MX WiFi, and a Sky Pro GPS 160. I've been importing the videos in post production after track days, but it's just getting to be too much work. I'm loading the videos onto my laptop, combining them (since Go Pro breaks them into smaller files), moving them through itunes to the phone, then manually syncing the data to the video.

So, my thoughts are to change it up a bit this way:

iPhone connects to Go Pro (wifi), Kiwi 3 (BTLE), and Sky Pro (BT) so that all data is synced.

Do you think I'll run into any issues with the BT bandwidth? I read the numerous posts on issues with the Kiwi, but sounded like they were resolved.

I have not tested this combo (Kiwi3+Sky Pro) but I know that VBOX Sport+GoPoint BT1 works fine sharing the bandwidth. As the later use more bandwidth than Kiwi plus XGPS, it should be fine.

Thanks!

Do you think the BT1 is a better option? I'm not set on anything in particular.

The Kiwi3 is slightly faster than the BT1 for CAN cars. But not a lot of pros and cons here.
