Using for Off Road Dirt Bike Racing?

Postby bmcgin » Tue Nov 28, 2017 7:07 pm

I am looking for something to help with off-road dirt bike racing and wondering if LapTimer might help.

I need to track to GPS location, speed and possibly lap times. The only thing is I need to transmit the data to the pit crew so they can monitor the data during the race. Also, this would be helpful during training days.

Some races are 3-hours over a course which is 8-13 miles. The rider does not need to see the data points during the race, only the pit crew.

Is any of this possible to do with LapTmer?

Full data is not transmitted to the server end online. Options available can be seen here: http://legacy.gps-laptimer.de/Online_Racing.html Doing data recording for 3 hours will require an external power supply - which can be an issue for off-road and light bikes.

Hi,

I’ve have another question about the usage for Off-Road/MX.

Is it possible to Import GPS-Data wich are logged during the race or training session with an external GPS-Receiver like the Dual XGPS160.

There is a new system (app) on the market called CrossBox-Laptiming https://www.crossbox-laptiming.com/de/ wich focus on the analysis after the session not during.

In old times, logging while driving and analyzing data back at home has been the only option. LapTimer is prepared to support this scenario too, logging formats supported for import "after the fact" are .NMEA, .GPX, and .VBO

Autosport Labs RaceCapture Pro and Apex have telemetry capability, assuming there's the right kind of cellphone service available at the track. The data are uploaded in real time to a web site. I don't know how well it actually works, though. They also need power from an external source, either 12V or 5V.
